LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Rounds of strong storms continue to rumble across the region for the next several days. With a high amount of tropical moisture in the atmosphere, torrential rains are likely to cause flash flooding issues.

Here’s a quick breakdown of what we can expect:

  • A front stalls from west to east across the state as waves of low pressure work along it.
  • Rounds of showers and storms will work through the region.
  • Some of the storms may be strong or locally severe, but widespread severe is low.
  • Damaging wind and hail are the main players.
  • The flash flood threat will be elevated and will increase with each wave of thunderstorm action.
  • Rainfall through the week will average 1″-3″ for most of the state with local 5″+ amounts possible.
  • After a pleasant break in the action on Saturday, more waves of showers and storms return for Sunday and Monday. This will likely bring another flash flood threat.
  • There’s a chance for some big issues to develop somewhere in the region over the next week. 7 day rain totals will be up there, folks!

I mentioned the severe threat is fairly low and the Storm Prediction Center has us in the low-end risk over the next few days.
