HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
500 PM EDT THU OCT 9 2014

...A PROLONGED PERIOD OF MODERATE RAINS EXPECTED FROM LATE TONIGHT
THROUGH SUNDAY...

A STALLED FRONTAL BOUNDARY OVER THE NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE STATE
WILL SLOWLY MOVE SOUTH DURING THE NEXT FEW DAYS. THIS BOUNDARY WILL
PROVIDE A FOCUSING MECHANISM FOR A FAIRLY MOIST ENVIRONMENT AND
MINOR WAVES OF LOW PRESSURE. AS A RESULT...GENERALLY BETWEEN ONE AND
A HALF TO TWO AND HALF INCHES OF RAIN WILL LIKELY FALL FROM SHOWERS
AND EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEKEND OVER
EASTERN KENTUCKY. LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS WILL BE POSSIBLE WHERE ANY
STORMS DEVELOP AND MOVE REPEATEDLY OVER THE SAME AREAS.
ADDITIONALLY...MUCH OF THIS RAIN WILL FALL ON AREAS THAT HAVE ALREADY
SEEN BETWEEN TWO AND FOUR INCHES OF RAIN DURING THE PAST SEVERAL
DAYS. THE RAIN WILL BE SPREAD OUT OVER AN EXTENDED PERIOD...SO FLASH
FLOODING IS NOT EXPECTED TO BE A THREAT...HOWEVER SOME MINOR FLOODING
OF LARGER CREEKS AND STREAMS...AND EVENTUALLY AREA RIVERS...WILL BE
POSSIBLE. THERE IS STILL A FAIR AMOUNT OF UNCERTAINTY IN THE
FORECAST...SO STAYED TUNED FOR FURTHER DETAILS.
