Strong and severe storms continue to push across central and eastern Kentucky. This action should begin to wind down over the next few hours.
Good Sunday afternoon! Hope you didn’t throw away your ponchos from yesterday’s Derby run. We’re looking at another soggy day in the Commonwealth.
A FLOOD WATCH is still in effect for parts of south central Kentucky until Monday morning. This includes the cities of Somerset, Liberty, Campbellsville, Jamestown and Bowling Green. Areas that have already received nearly 2” of rain, will likely add another 1” to 2” of rain to their weekend totals.
Bowling Green even set a daily rainfall record yesterday, with 1.65” of rain. That broke the old record of 1.60” set in 1942.
The famous low pressure system behind all this soggy weather and flooding concerns will pump more showers and a few storms into the state Sunday. Coverage will be spotty at times, but for the most part showers will continue all day long.
Temperatures will not budge much Sunday afternoon, starting the day off in the mid 50s, ending in the upper 50s. The exception is for folks in eastern and northern zones, where a few more breaks in the showers may allow highs to pass the 60 degree mark in the north, and mid 60s in eastern Kentucky.
Showers will finally wind down through the day Monday, with a warming trend setting in by midweek. Next weekend brings another chance for showers and a few thunderstorms, with highs in the mid to upper 70s.
