HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK...UPDATED
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
235 PM EST SUN DEC 27 2015

...SEVERAL ROUNDS OF RAINFALL WILL AFFECT EASTERN KENTUCKY
THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE NEW WEEK MAINTAINING A POTENTIAL FOR
FLOODING...

SEVERAL FRONTAL BOUNDARIES WILL INTERACT WITH A WARM AND MOIST
AIR MASS IN PLACE OVER EASTERN KENTUCKY THROUGH WEDNESDAY. THIS
WILL RESULT IN PERIODS OF SHOWERS AND POSSIBLE THUNDERSTORMS. DUE
TO THE ALREADY SATURATED NATURE OF THE GROUND FROM PREVIOUS
RAINS...ANY ADDITIONAL RAINFALL COULD LEAD TO POTENTIAL FLOODING
CONCERNS ALONG CREEKS...STREAMS...AND LARGER RIVERS. IN GENERAL...
A SOLID 1 TO 2 INCHES OF RAINFALL IS FORECAST ACROSS EASTERN
KENTUCKY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS
POSSIBLE.

FOR TONIGHT...EXPECT THE BEST SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL
TO OCCUR ALONG AND NORTH OF THE MOUNTAIN PARKWAY...WHERE
GENERALLY A QUARTER TO A HALF AN INCH OF RAINFALL IS EXPECTED.
MORE WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION WILL THEN AFFECT ALL OF EASTERN
KENTUCKY MONDAY INTO MONDAY NIGHT...WITH AROUND AN INCH OF
ADDITIONAL RAINFALL ANTICIPATED. FURTHERMORE...THERE WILL LIKELY
BE ANOTHER ROUND OF RAINFALL ON WEDNESDAY...ALTHOUGH THE AMOUNTS
REMAIN UNCERTAIN AT THIS TIME. STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES AND FURTHER
REFINEMENTS TO THIS FORECAST OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS.
