First Alert Weather Forecast

A significant winter storm is likely to hit the bluegrass state late Tuesday through Thursday. This could bring everything from flooding rains to heavy snow and sleet accumulations to our entire region.

A Winter Storm Watch and a Flood Watch are both out for the region during this time.

Heavy rain is likely ahead of an arctic front that sweeps in early Wednesday. Rainfall of 1″-2″ in a short amount of time will be possible and that would be enough to cause some flooding issues.

One thing working to help reduce the flooding risk is the arctic air surging in. That could help freeze some of the runoff, allowing our waterways a better chance to handle the rain. Still, be on guard!

The arctic front then slowly works across the state as waves of low pressure develop along it. This has the look of a significant snowstorm and sleetstorm for our region.

Bitterly cold air will follow that up with readings near zero by Friday morning.

This is a high impact winter storm.
