Winter Storm Brings Us Rain and Wind

Posted at 2:47 PM, Dec 27, 2018

We’re currently sitting in the midsection of a massive winter storms that stretches from southern Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. All types of weather is being experienced but we’ll luck out with mostly just rain showers. As of now, light to moderate showers are being picked up on the MaxTrack Live Doppler. A squall line of storms is showing up in extreme western counties at this time.

That squall line will arrive in the Bluegrass around dinner time and will progress eastward through the overnight period. Rain showers will become heavy as the line passes and thunderstorms are possible. Wind will continue to increase as the front moves eastward and will become gusty. A WIND ADVISORY will take effect from 7pm tonight through 7am tomorrow. Southerly gusts will range between 30 and 50 mph. Driving could be difficult overnight. In addition to the wind, the heavy rain along with a small frontal stall may contribute to flash flood conditions for extreme southeastern counties. Rain amounts will range between a half inch along the Ohio River, to up to 2” for the KY/VA state line. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will remain in effect for southeast these counties through Friday afternoon. Conditions improve through the weekend.
