Flood threat continues

Good Wednesday, everybody. Rounds of heavy rain continue to press across the region through early Thursday, bringing the potential for flooding. Many areas have already picked up more than 2″ of rain and a lot more is going to fall through tonight.

Once we get through this, some snow looks to impact the end of the week into the weekend. I’ll get to that in a bit. First, let’s talk about the potential for flooding.

Much of southern and southeastern Kentucky continue to be under a Flood Watch through Thursday morning:

Another 1″-3″ of rain will be possible across the south and southeast through tonight. Here are your tracking toys for the day:

Colder air crashes in as another wave of low pressure passes by to our east late Thursday into Thursday night. Light snow develops across the state, with the greatest emphasis on central and eastern Kentucky. With temps dropping into the upper 20s Friday morning, light accumulations appear to be a good bet.

The NAM really likes the snow potential with this:

The GFS is seeing more of this potential:

It’s possible for some delays and cancellations Friday morning.

As the Friday system shows up a little stronger, the overnight model runs are trending weaker with the Saturday snow maker. The GFS does add some light accumulations on top of the Friday action:

Have a wonderful Wednesday and take care.
