Mid-Week Heavy Rains

Here we go again!!! Another round of heavy rain is expected to cruise into the area during the middle of the week!

Just what we needed to hear... more heavy rain will be coming our way! The entire area will officially go under a flood watch on Wednesday and that will run through Thursday.

I'm thinking we could see anywhere from 1"-3" of rainfall this go around! You factor in the last two big rain events and we have ourselves the making for more flooding. Waters have had time to recede... but in some cases not enough time! You can check the river stages here...

It's late and I think my eyelids are bleeding...LOL... I'll post a rainfall graphic on Tuesday!

C-Ya Bye

    I don't have a good feeling about this rain event. The ground is already saturated here in Harlan Co. I hope it doesn't flood too bad along the Cumberland River.

    jim, i read on the flood watch on the weather channel that theres a potential for more rainfall than forecasted, maybe higher than 3 inches, do you think some places could see higher amounts that could cause some moderate flooding out of this system or do you think it will just be a few inches

    Jim, you are doing a great job, I live very close to the river here and it was up pretty close to our road then it receeded. I really dont want to think about more rain, or even snow..lol..but oh well thats what kentucky weather is like right? Thanks for all you do!
