Early morning scattered showers and thunderstorms are moving trough and mainly centered over the 64 corridor. This is just a preview of things to come. Rain chances get better as the day moves along. Temperatures are up 15-25 degrees making for a mild and muggy morning. Wind speeds have also picked up out of the south, transporting in the moisture needed for rain.
The day will be filled with scattered rain showers, becoming widespread through the afternoon and evening. Not everyone is expected to receive rain today, but most will. Moderate to heavy rain is expected at times. Lightning strikes are also possible, but severe weather is not expected. Overnight, rain persist and becomes state-wide, with a heavy band lining up over the Southern Bluegrass. Rainfall amounts will run between a half inch and around 3.” Localized higher amounts also possible. Flooding will be a possible concern thanks to completely dry soils and the inability to immediately collect rain. Runoff will cause streams, creeks, rivers, and roadways to collect water faster, which could cause flood concerns. Watch for high water from tonight through Tuesday morning. Also, keep in mind that commutes will be slippery.
