Heavy rain and strong storms continue

Good Monday to one and all. We continue to track a very stormy pattern across central and eastern Kentucky. This setup is likely to bring additional rounds of strong storms and heavy rainfall our way.

Just like what we saw on Sunday, thunderstorms come at us in waves again today. Some of these may be strong or severe with damaging winds and hail as the main threats. Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

A front is stalling on top of the Ohio Valley and will essentially stay there through the rest of the week into the weekend. At the same time, several waves of low pressure will develop along the boundary:

That means waves of showers and thunderstorms will continue to impact the bluegrass state during this time. These storms will be loaded with torrential rains, likely producing flooding issues from time to time. These storms may also pose a severe weather threat.

Damaging winds and large hail will be the main players with any strong or severe storm going up. That’s not just the case for today, but it’s basically the case each day this week and into the weekend.

The flash flood threat is fairly high as several inches of rain will fall. If you live in a flood prone area, please keep a close eye out when storms develop because they can put down a ton of rain in a hurry.

As usual, I have you all set to track today’s action:

Have a very happy Monday and take care.
