...Looking Ahead To Another Potential Heavy Rain Threat...

A frontal boundary is expected to stall somewhere near the region
by the middle to end of this coming week. During this time,
multiple waves of plentiful moisture are expected to ride along
the boundary bringing widespread rain over the area. Given the
recent heavy rain, ongoing river flooding in spots, and
additional rainfall amounts possibly amounting to several inches
there is concern for hydrologic problems through the end of the
coming week and likely into the following week.

Right now, the heaviest rain is forecast to fall mainly across
southern Kentucky where 2 to 4 inches of rain would be possible
mid to late week. Slightly lesser, but still significant, amounts
of 1 to 3 inches of rain would be possible across portions of
central Kentucky. It is important to note that forecast rainfall
amounts and locations can change over the coming days so stay up
to date of the latest forecasts.

Anyone with interests along area rivers should be prepared for
exacerbated or new flooding concerns in the coming week. Of
particular interest would be the Green, Cumberland, and Kentucky
river basins where data suggests the highest threat will be.

One final note worth mentioning is that longer range forecasts
show another medium confidence signal for another round of
significant rainfall late next weekend into the following week. In
addition, the Climate Prediction Center has our region highlighted
for greater chances of above normal rainfall in both the 8 to 14
day outlook and the one month outlook. If these projections hold
true, flooding and river flooding concerns could last for multiple
