A few showers scattered through the state early this morning. The result was not much, but this was the initial activity with the strong cold front about to pass. After the showers, we had a bit of sunshine mixed in with a breezy southwesterly wind making for a warm morning. Now, we see more clouds and a line of heavy rain moving in.

Showers hang around, and a line of heavy rain with storms is inbound. The line of showers will move through the I-75 corridor between 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The line will spread as it moves east and will drop heavy rain over Eastern Kentucky counties from 4:00 p.m. through the evening hours. Rainfall amounts are still expected to run in the 0.50” to 1.50” range. Watch for high water at times, especially after a heavy rain shower. Tomorrow morning the heavy rain will be finished, but the showers will not be. Scattered to isolated rain showers will continue through the day on Thursday and some of the day on Friday, before this system is all wrapped up. We’re still expecting a *mostly* nice weekend with sunshine Saturday and warmer temperatures.
