Good Wednesday, everyone. Rounds of heavy rain and thunderstorms are moving in today and will stick around through the upcoming weekend. This begins a prolonged flood threat for much of the bluegrass state.
A Flood Watch is already out for much of the region through Sunday:
The rainfall numbers from the European Model continues to show several inches of rain for the entire state:
Those numbers can lead to all modes of flooding across the entire region. Rounds of flash flooding, general flooding, street flooding and river flooding are all likely.
I cannot stress enough, if you live in a flood prone area, please stay alert to the potential for flooding.
Some WILD temperature swings will also show up, with a 30 degree gradient showing up from time to time. That may actually start tomorrow:
Temps may oscillate between warm and chilly in just a few hours or any one location. Get ready for some wild temp swings, folks.
In addition to the temp swings and flooding rains, Keep a close eye on the weekend for the potential for some strong or severe storms.
There’s also a strong storm and heavy rain signal showing up for the middle of next week:
That likely leads us into an ugly look for early March. Ugh.
Here are the rest of your tracking toys for the day:
Make it a great Wednesday and take care.
