A powerful winter storm centered over the Upper Midwest is feeding our warm, wet, and windy conditions today. Widespread rain, some of which will be heavy at times, along with a few rumbles of thunder across southern Kentucky will continue through tonight. The Flood Watch has been expanded to the east, and it will run through late tonight. Rainfall amounts are around 0.5" since midnight. Localized flooding concerns may arise with the uptick in intensity this afternoon and evening. An additional 1" to 2" of rain will fall between now and tomorrow morning.

Showers will quickly wrap up Monday morning. Temperatures will be stuck in the 40s tomorrow with the warmest part of the day occurring while you're sleeping. We will be back to "normal" on New Year's Eve with highs in the upper 30s. It stays chilly as we welcome 2020. However, temperatures will quickly bounce back into the 50s late week. The next warm-up also comes with increasing chances for rain that will linger into the start of next weekend.
