Rounds of heavy rain continue

Rounds of torrential rain continue to blast many areas that have already picked up significant amounts of rainfall. These storms will continue for a few more hours.

Significant flooding is also being reported near Ashland in northeastern Kentucky.

These storms are producing a tremendous amount of lightning.

Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will carry us through the upcoming weekend. These storms are developing in a tropical atmosphere that will continue into early next week.

Torrential rainfall and frequent lightning will be the primary threats from these storms. We will need to keep a close eye on the potential for flash flooding from any storm that goes up.

A few storms could be strong with small hail and high winds.

The threat for showers and storms will stay around into the middle of next week. That's when a cold front moves in from the west. That front will usher in much cooler air by the end of the week and the start of the Labor Day Weekend.
