More rain rolling through

Good Friday, everyone. Additional rounds of rain are rolling across the bluegrass state and this looks to continue into Saturday. That’s also when a touch of winter weather finally returns to central and eastern Kentucky.

Let’s begin with today and roll forward. Temps are in the 50s and that’s the good news. The bad news is, of course, the rain. It’s coming at us in waves and will be locally heavy at times through tonight. That will lead to high water concerns across far southern and southeastern Kentucky.

Here are your tracking toys for the day:

Rain will be with us early on Saturday, but cold air crashes in behind the departing storm system and changes the rain to wet snow:

Some light accumulations will be possible on grassy and elevated surfaces.

Another system will follow that up from Monday night through Tuesday night. The track of this system will be the determining factor on rain or snow where you live.

The dominant pattern through the middle of January is a trough in the west and a ridge in the eastern part of the country. Throw in an active storm track and precipitation is likely well above normal around here:

Given our wet ground and swollen waterways, additional high water issues may develop.

Have a happy Friday and take care.
