Brace for impact- we’re in for one final, soggy & gusty push Tuesday. The LEX 18 Severe Threat Index is elevated to 1 due to the heavy rain & strong wind threat. We’ve already picked up 1″-2″+ of rain since Sunday and could add another 1″ to 1.5″. A flood watch remains in effect and a wind advisory has been issued for 30-40+ mph gusts as a cold front sweeps east. The combination of saturated ground, heavy rain and strong wind could bring down weaker trees, lead to power outages and impact your commute.
