Flood Watch for Rest of Weekend

Very heavy rain expected through Sunday
Posted at 5:06 PM, Feb 27, 2021

The rounds of rain are beginning again after a mostly dry Saturday. We already have more rain moving up from the south as a warm front is lifting north across the state. The result from the warm front will be overnight lows only dip into the low 50s just shy of where we are now. That will make it feel decent tonight and help to warm us up quickly tomorrow. There have been some places (mainly southern and southeastern KY) that have picked up some good amounts of rain so far, but much more is coming beginning tonight and through most of our Sunday thanks to a couple of low pressures.

Expect several heavy rain showers overnight with a couple of rumbles of thunder, but nothing severe expected. Sunday, as we get into the warm sector (60s and 70s temps), it is possible we could see a few stronger thunderstorms along with very heavy rain. The Storm Prediction Center has placed us in a marginal risk for severe weather for Sunday with the main threat being the heavy rain, but a few strong wind gusts and some small hail are possible too. Another 1" to 2" of rain is expected over the next 24 to 36 hours with some spots picking up as much as 3" of rain which will lead to water issues.

A FLOOD WATCH will go into effect tonight at 1 AM and last until Monday 7 AM due to over-saturated grounds and high-running creeks and rivers. If you live in a flood-prone area, please be prepared for flooding this weekend. Rain will wrap up early Monday and we should get to see some sunshine for the second part of the day with temperatures dropping back off into the 40s.
