HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
447 AM EST SUN DEC 27 2015

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

FRONTAL BOUNDARIES WILL INTERACT WITH A WARM AND MOIST AIR MASS
IN PLACE OVER EASTERN KENTUCKY THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE COMING
WEEK...RESULTING 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...1 TO 2 INCHES OF RAINFALL IS FORECAST ACROSS EASTERN
KENTUCKY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...WITH SOME LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS
POSSIBLE.

FOR TODAY...EXPECT BEST SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL TO
OCCUR ALONG AND NORTH OF THE I-64 CORRIDOR...WHERE GENERALLY LESS
THAN HALF AN INCH OF RAINFALL IS EXPECTED. MORE WIDESPREAD
PRECIPITATION WILL THEN AFFECT ALL OF EASTERN KENTUCKY MONDAY INTO
MONDAY NIGHT...WHERE AROUND AN INCH OF ADDITIONAL RAINFALL IS
FORECAST. 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 AS THIS EVENT UNFOLDS OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS.
