Today’s severe weather threat turned into more of a heavy rain/flood event as the rain moved in very quickly and shut down the severe storm window earlier than expected. In return we ended up with very heavy downpours and numerous reports of flooding especially over Ky and Tn…and showers are still redeveloping this evening as the drier air has not begun to push in from the west. A few showers look to remain possible at least into early tonight…when colder and much drier air will begin to blow in from the west. Winds Advisories have been issued for roughly the northern half of the area overnight, where west winds could gust to over 40mph later tonight. By daybreak it will be cold and windy with air temps in the 30s and 40s but with chilly northwest winds.
The good news part of the forecast is that the next few days will feature dry conditions and quite a bit of sunshine. Sunday will be cool and breezy…but winds will be lighter on Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday look to be a bit milder…but with some clouds sneaking back in. Our next chances of precip arrive later in the week…along with a return to a colder pattern again. Right now the best chance of our ‘next rain’ looks to be Friday night ahead of a cold front.
