Flood threat returns

Good Monday, everyone. Rounds of heavy rain continue to roll across the region and this is a sign of things to come. Additional heavy rain and strong storms will be noted through the middle of the week as a potent system moves in. All of this leads to an increased flooding risk.

A Flood Watch is out for only a few counties in the far southeastern part of the state..

I get that those were the counties hardest hit, but come on guys. Expand that thing to include much more of this region. Geez.

This may need to be expanded much farther north for Tuesday and Wednesday as the next wave of heavy rain moves across much of the region. That’s especially true since some areas have already picked up well more than 1″ of rain through noon today…

The next round of heavier rain arrives tonight and early Tuesday before a bit of a break in the action. That window closes quickly with heavy rain and strong storms arriving Wednesday. Colder winds blow for Thursday with some flakes flying…

The Flood Threat map remains the same during this time…

The severe risk for Wednesday afternoon and evening is there, especially across parts of southern Kentucky. Here’s the outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

The setup from this weekend through next week continues the active pattern with more rounds of heavy rain…

I leave you with your tracking toys…

Enjoy the day and take care.
