...Tropical Airmass Bringing Heavy Rains To Close Out Work Week...

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 heavy rainfall. The stronger
storms Thursday easily could bring a quick inch of rainfall.

A second wave of heavy rain will develop late Thursday night and
continue to Friday morning, with the focus at this time expected
somewhere along the Ohio River. Areal average rainfall totals in
this band easily could range from 1 to 2 inches.

The third wave of rainfall will come close to the low pressure
remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy as they travel across southern
Kentucky Friday night. Areal average rainfall totals with this
system should range from 1 to 3 inches.

Overall rainfall totals from Thursday through Saturday look to
range from 2 to 5 inches, with locally higher amounts. This much
rain can 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 could see localized street flooding.
