Good Tuesday, folks. It’s another very active weather day taking shape across central and eastern Kentucky. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms continue to cause flooding issues, and now we watch for the potential for a few severe storms.
Many areas in our region have been impacted by high water over the next few days, and our ground just can’t hold another drop. Unfortunately, heavy rains will fall across the region again today. Here’s a look at the current warnings across the region:
A Flash Flood Watch continues for much of the state during this time:
This watch goes through Wednesday with another 1″-4″ of rain possible during this time. That’s absolutely nuts and will likely make this the wettest September ever in Lexington.
The threat for severe storms will inch up a bit this afternoon and evening. The Storm Prediction Center has us in the risk area:
That risk area will slide east and southeast later tonight and Wednesday:
Damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes are possible.
Much cooler and drier air FINALLY works in behind all this for Thursday and Friday.
Here are today’s trackers:
Have a great day and take care.
