Dry Days To Help Water Levels

Posted at 5:28 PM, Feb 25, 2019

Today looked beautiful, but the problems are still present. Flood conditions remain around the state, especially in southern counties where the bulk of the rain was present. Skies are clear and the temperature has cooled into the 40s for the afternoon highs today. We’ll keep similar conditions tomorrow, but temperatures will warm a little more.

The flood concerns persist as water levels in streams, creeks, and rivers are running high. Most rivers in Kentucky remain in flood category and several FLOOD WARNINGS are in place. A few southern counties still have high water covering roadways, so areal flooding continues. Water levels are cresting or have crested, so we’ll see them go down from here. We’ll keep a dry pattern in place through the middle of the week. The next rain maker looks to arrive Thursday evening and last into the weekend. The good news here is that showers seem to run light, but additional water may raise levels again. Temperatures will warm through the coming days, but we could be looking at another major cool down early next week.
