The face of our latest Flash Flood Watch has changed quite a bit since it was first issued. Here's the way it looks as of 10pm.
The heaviest of the rainfall was in Wayne, Pulaski, Laurel, Whitley, & McCreary Counties. If these locations do see more it would be the targeted area for any major issues. The other spots in the watch have seen there fair share of rain too, but maybe they can hold a little more water before reaching the tipping point.
You can see exactly what I mean by looking at the rainfall totals from the KY mesonet.
August 18th Rainfall
With the threat of more showers sweeping in during the overnight hours one has to be aware of the situation.
The models aren't spitting out significant totals... but possibly just enough to cause some problems.

So we're looking at generally 1" + in some areas.
Thursday's rain should wrap-up and open the door for the sunshine on Thursday afternoon. I think most of us will have a good run at the mid 80s while some of us will once again visit the upper 80s. We'll stay dry for the first FOOTBALL FRIDAY NIGHT! It might be a little warm to get things kicked off, but after that all should be well.
