Very Active Weather Week Ahead

The Big Dawg Weather Blog is presented by:

 

Good Sunday Afternoon everyone! We have a very active weather week ahead, and just about every threat is on the table for this week Including flooding, severe thunderstorms, and winter weather. I have a lot to discuss, so heres the latest breakdown. 

Storm #1 

Rain chances will increase on Monday night as our first system moves into the area. 2-4 inches of rain appear likely across much of the state, which would lead to flooding, especially in flood-prone and poor drainage areas. In addition to the flooding potential, another thing we will be closely monitoring is the severe weather potential. The best chance for severe storms will come Tuesday evening, just ahead of the cold front. The SPC has placed portions of South-Central Kentucky in a MARGINAL risk for severe weather, which means that Isolated Severe Thunderstorms are possible. 

Storm #2 

 After a brief dry period on Wednesday, our second system will move into the area beginning on Wednesday Night. While much uncertainty remains with this system, the data shows the best possibility of a wintry mix along and north of the Ohio River. 
Across southern and central Kentucky, the current thinking is that temperatures should remain warm enough for plain rain, with another 1-3 inches of rain likely. This would further increase the potential for flooding issues, especially on area rivers and streams.

Storm #3

The potential is there for another system to impact our area next weekend. This system would potentially bring more rain and snow to our area. This is obviously over a week away, so the details of how this system will evolve are unclear.   

 

The biggest threat that we have this week is the flooding potential. The latest forecast from the National Weather Service shows anywhere between 4-6 inches of rain falling across the state. We will always keep you up to date with all the latest weather information!
