...A Couple Rounds of Rain Threaten Renewed Flooding Over
Portions of the Area for the End of the Week and Into the

A complex and potent storm system will ride through the Ohio and
Tennessee Valleys during the mid-week time frame, producing a
couple rounds of showers from Wednesday through Thursday. The
cumulative effect of this may eventually lead to flooding
concerns. At this point, the greatest threat appears to be
Wednesday night into Thursday and generally south of the Mountain
Parkway. All together, between 1 and 2 inches of rain can be
anticipated for eastern Kentucky from late Tuesday night through
Thursday. Locally higher amounts will be possible, especially for
areas along and near the Kentucky and Tennessee state line. This
rainfall may cause streams to rise to near bankfull or possibly
flood late in the week and into the upcoming weekend.

A fair amount of uncertainty remains with respect to the timing
and track of the rounds of rainfall. Keep updated on the excessive
rainfall potential through the weekend. Flood watches or warnings
may need to be issued at a later time.
