...Heavy Rainfall Threat for Central and Southern Kentucky...

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 moisture are expected to ride along the boundary
bringing widespread rain to the area. Given the recent heavy rain,
ongoing river flooding in spots, and additional rainfall possibly
totaling several inches, there is concern for hydrologic problems
through next weekend and likely into the following week.

Right now, the heaviest rain is forecast to fall mainly across
southern Kentucky where 2 to 5 inches of rain would be possible
Tuesday afternoon through next Saturday. 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 on the latest forecast.

Anyone with interests along area rivers should be prepared for
exacerbated or new flooding concerns over the next week. Of
particular concern are 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 Week 3 to 4 outlook. If these projections
hold true, flooding and river flooding concerns could last for
multiple weeks.
