...Tropical Airmass Bringing Heavy Rains Thursday- Friday...

Moist air coming up from the Gulf of Mexico will move into central
Kentucky Thursday and into southern Indiana by Thursday evening.
Rain chances will increase from south to north as well, with any
storms that form able to produce locally torrential downpours.

A second wave of heavy rain will develop late Thursday night and
continue to Friday morning, especially across southern Indiana and
north central Kentucky. Areal average rainfall totals in this
band could range from 1 to 2 inches.

The third wave of rainfall will arrive with the remnants of
Tropical Storm Cindy as they travel across Tennessee Friday
night. Areal average rainfall totals with this system should range
from 1 to 3 inches.

Bands of higher rainfall amounts will be possible in narrow strips
where several thunderstorms move along the same track.

This much rain will lead to the filling of area creeks and may
cause a few rivers to rise to near flood levels. Areas that
receive multiple rounds of heavy rainfall will see localized
street flooding.

Much drier weather is expected this weekend and into next week,
giving the region a chance to dry out.
