Heavy rain rolls in

Good Thursday, everyone. Our big storm system is arriving in the bluegrass state, bringing rounds of heavy rain to the region. This will continue through Friday as a touch of snow gets into the mix later in the day.

Here are a few thoughts on the rain part of the storm:

  • Rounds of heavy rain impact central and eastern Kentucky Thursday into Friday. A general 1″-3″ may fall.
  • Local high water issues are very possible, especially in the southeastern parts of the state.

Here are your radars to track today’s rains:

Here are the headlines for the potential for a switch to some winter weather later Friday:

  • Temps drop quickly as the low goes by to our northeast. That allows for a switch to a mix of rain and snow and a period of wet snow.
  • Some light accumulations are possible across central and eastern parts of the state. That’s still not a given because any snow that falls has to fight a wet ground. But, some slushy, light accumulations are POSSIBLE in some areas.

Here’s a quick look at how the models see that potential:

GFS

The Sunday into Sunday night system continues to look fairly week, but could deliver a little bit of light rain and light snow for some. The models are still trying to figure this out. Here’s the GFS:

The European is a little weaker:

The European Model is just a tad farther north with the Christmas Eve and Day system:

Have a great Thursday and take care.
