The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Warning until 5:15 EST for multiple Bluegrass counties.

A slow moving low will extend our heavy rain and flash flood threat into the second day. Expect rounds of showers and t-showers with locally heavy rain Tuesday and with saturated soil from Monday's torrential rainfall, flash flooding remains a threat.

A flash flood watch is in effect through Tuesday evening, another 1" to 2"+ will be possible over the next 48 hours with the bulk of it falling Tuesday, mainly along and east of I-75.

Use caution on the roads and avoid floodwater, especially in low lying, flood prone areas. It will be cloudy, breezy and unseasonably cool with highs in the 60s.
