The Threat Index remains at a Level 1 due to the potential for rounds of heavy rain and a few gusty storms. Up to three inches of rain will possible over the next two days. A Flood Watch is now in effect for all of central and eastern Kentucky as flooding concerns could arise.

The highest threat for stronger storms remains to our west. It is still possible that a gusty thunderstorm or two could cross into the Bluegrass.​

The rain will end Thursday night ahead of a cold front, which will send us back to reality. We are tracking temperatures to fall from record warmth with highs in the low 70s Thursday to the 30s on Friday. A little snow could briefly mix in on the tail end Friday morning. Even though it will be getting colder, this won’t be an outbreak of extreme cold. Temperatures will level off near “normal” with highs through the weekend in the mid 30s to lower 40s.
