Tracking flooding rains and severe storms

Good Saturday, everyone. It’s a very active weather day taking shape across central and eastern Kentucky, with an increased threat for flooding rains and severe storms.

Here’s a breakdown of what to expect:

  • Rounds of showers and storms will be around during the daylight hours, leading to some flooding issues.
  • Winds will be very gusty this afternoon and evening, as a warm, unstable air mass moves in from the southwest.
  • Strong to severe storms develop across the west during the early evening.
  • Those storms will roll into central and eastern Kentucky from late this evening through early Sunday morning.
  • Damaging winds look to be the main severe weather threat.
  • These same storms will be proficient rainfall producers, causing a significant flood and flash flood threat to develop.
  • If you live in flood prone area, be alert to the potential for significant flooding.
