...Heavy Rain and Flooding Likely Beginning Tuesday Night in
Central Kentucky...

Repeated periods of rainfall are expected Tuesday night through
Sunday across portions of central Kentucky as multiple waves move
along a stalled front. By next Sunday widespread rainfall totals
of 3 to 6 inches are expected across the Commonwealth, with up to
8 inches possible in southern Kentucky.

The first wave of heavy rain is expected Tuesday night and
Wednesday. Widespread 2 to 3 inch rainfall over south-central
Kentucky will result in areal flooding, with additional rises
likely along the Green, Barren, Kentucky, and Cumberland Rivers.

Additional waves of rain are likely Friday through the weekend.
Given the already saturated ground and elevated river levels,
which will be enhanced by the midweek rains, any of these waves
could produce enough rain to result in localized flooding and
further aggravate river flooding.

Confidence is high that widespread heavy rain will fall across
Kentucky in the coming week, and will result in areal and river
flooding. Rises on the Green, Barren, Kentucky, and Cumberland
Rivers are likely. Beyond Wednesday, the timing and placement of
heavy rain is less certain, making it more difficult to determine
the severity of any flooding or the extent that other basins will
be affected. Anyone with interests along any area rivers should
stay up to date on the latest forecasts.
