Flood Watch out for the entire WYMT coverage area for Tuesday evening through Thursday evening.
Winter Storm Watch out for most of Eastern Kentucky from Wednesday afternoon until Thursday afternoon.
After a break in the winter weather, it's coming back with a vengeance. It starts on Tuesday as a warm front lifts north of the Ohio Valley sparking off a few showers and storms with otherwise partly cloudy skies. Highs will top off in the 50s.
A cold front moves in on Wednesday and will bring us heavy rain in the morning and afternoon. 1-2" of rain is likely during this time and may cause some flooding problems on the local big rivers, such as the Tug Fork, Cumberland, and Kentucky Rivers.
As arctic air funnels in Wednesday afternoon we will see the rain transition to sleet, and then over to snow. There is some question about how fast this change over happens, but we could see up to an inch or inch and half of sleet before it happens.
Snow continues into Thursday morning before tapering off to flurries by the afternoon. Most of Eastern Kentucky will likely see 4-8"s of snow with higher amounts possible north of the Mountain Parkway and back towards Central Kentucky.
After that another dry stretch of weather heads our way from Friday into Sunday. It will remain chilly though.
