Winter weather before the flood threat

Good Tuesday to one and all. We have another massive storm system moving into the bluegrass state, bringing some winter weather and a whole lot of rain. This is the first of two storms set to impact our region through the upcoming weekend.

This first system moves in this evening and goes through Wednesday night. It likely brings another 1″-3″ of rain to the region. A Flood Watch is already out for just about the entire state:

General flooding and river flooding are possible from this system.

As mentioned, this system may start out as some snow or a mix this evening and I wouldn’t be surprised to see some light accumulations for some areas. Winter Weather Advisories may be needed in a few spots:

I’m also focusing on the weekend setup that has the potential to produce more flooding rains and even some severe thunderstorms:

That has a severe weather look for much of this region.

We have GOT to change this pattern up and it looks like that happens in the closing days of the month. Check out the deep trough moving in here as a major block develops near Alaska:
