Tracking a Double Dose of Heavy Rain

Posted at 2:14 PM, Sep 06, 2018

It’s going to be a double dose of rain into early next week. We are tracking a cold front that is currently diving through the Bluegrass. Scattered thundershowers capable of producing heavy rain, gusty winds, and frequent lightning will continue this evening. More numerous showers and storms will be possible Friday as the boundary settles across southern Kentucky. We will also be tapping into some tropical moisture. Additional heavy rain will again be possible.

And we aren’t done yet. It looks like Saturday will feature a little more dry time. However, clouds will be socked in and a few showers may still pass through. Then we are tracking the remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon to spread widespread rain across the area Sunday and Monday. Tropical downpours will be likely. The axis of heaviest rain is still in flux – it may set up just to the north of the Ohio River or spill southward into the Bluegrass. At this time we’ll call for a generous two to three inches will locally higher amounts possible.

Daily chances for showers and storms will continue through most of next week. Look at it this way, at least you’ll be saving some money at the car wash.
