It's a very warm and stormy setup taking shape for the week ahead, leading to a flood threat.
Highs on Tuesday may flirt with the warmest readings on record for the month of February. Lexington's all-time record is 80 degree from back in 1996, and we have a shot at getting there.
From there, the flood threat takes center stage. Rounds of heavy rain and thunderstorms move in on Wednesday and last through the upcoming weekend. A general 2"-5" of rain is likely, with locally higher amounts.
All modes of flooding are likely during this time. Rounds of flash flooding,general flooding and river flooding are all possible.
If you live in a flood prone area, or near a river, please keep alert to the increased flood threat.
