Heavy rain slows down

Good Monday, everyone. Heavy rain producing showers and thunderstorms are common across areas of central and eastern Kentucky. This rain is essentially wiping out our short-term drought and producing local high water concerns. It’s also bringing a chill to the air… Or should I say “Chili” to the air. It’s a full blown Pot Of Chili Alert today. 🙂

Local high water issues are possible early today across central and eastern Kentucky. This is where the heaviest rains are falling. The drops will slowly end from west to east today, but temps may not get out of the 50s for the eastern half of the state. Winds will be gusty, making it feel downright chilly.

Here are your Monday tracking tools:

The threat for rain will linger through Tuesday across areas of far eastern and southeastern Kentucky. This area could get in on another round of very heavy rains. Check out the rain totals from tonight into Tuesday only:

That will keep overnight temps up compared to the rest of the state, but will also keep them down on Tuesday. Most areas are in the 40s for overnight lows, with a shot at upper 30s in the colder valleys. Highs on Tuesday are generally in the 60s.

Wednesday and Thursday look very nice with cool mornings and mild afternoons. This is ahead of a big time fall cold front that moves in here by Friday or very early Saturday.Gusty winds and a line of showers and storms will accompany our front:

This boundary will have one heck of a temperature gradient along it with temps dropping some 20-30 degrees in just a few hours. That could give us 50s for highs on Saturday with a significant frost threat Saturday night:

The setup behind that into next week looks chilly with the potential for a potent southern stream storm system. Interesting look for the middle of October.

Have a great day and take care.
