LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – After a chilly and icy morning for some, rain is at the center of our concerns. Unfortunately, a border is stuck in the area as several waves of rain cross the Commonwealth for the workweek. There is probably a lot of risk of rain and a significant flood threat.
The showers finally end late tonight as the minimums go down in their mid-thirties. Some flakes may fly Monday morning as the clouds drag and the tops reach only the 30s.
In the future, it is a busy forecast with a busy weather model. For us, it means more chances of rain. Our next tour arrives Tuesday night and continues until Wednesday. This could start with a winter mix before a cold rain wins. It is likely that rain will continue mid-week before pausing between disturbances.
At the end of the week, showers persist on Thursday as temperatures reach the 40s and 50s. However, our next wave of rain skyrockets on Friday and continues throughout the weekend. The peaks for this period are jumping in the 60s.
River floods and flash floods will be a major concern over the next seven days. Total precipitation will vary between 3 and 7 "+ with locally higher amounts possible (particularly for south and southeast Kentucky), however, it will be important to remain alert to conditions. weather as we progress through this soggy part.
