Good Friday, everyone. We have rounds of showers and thunderstorms targeting the region through the upcoming weekend. This action will likely put down some very heavy rain totals, leading to local high water issues.
The longer range forecast is a cool one and I will get to that in a moment. First, let’s start with what’s going on out there today. Showers and thunderstorms will be coming at us in waves, It’s not going to rain all day, but when it does, it’s going to come down pretty hard. Additional flash flooding issues will be possible across central and eastern Kentucky.
Here are your Friday tracking tools:
This low continues to spin SLOWLY across the Tennessee Valley on Saturday, bringing spiraling bands of showers and storm with it. With the counterclockwise spin from low pressure, you should be able to see that on radar, too.
Sunday finds a similar setup with the slow-moving low across the region, but we will also notice a front dropping in from the northwest. That won’t make it in here until Monday, but it should be able to help ignite additional rounds of showers and thunderstorms. Fronts hitting this much moisture can really squeeze out a lot of rain. Check out the European Model rain forecast through Monday night:
This could get very ugly at times, folks.
That system slowly moves away late Monday into Tuesday as temps continue to run cooler than normal. Another system will then drop in from the northwest by the middle of the week. That could bring some more showers and storms and unleash even cooler temps:
Have a great Friday and take care.
