...Waves Of Rainfall Into The Weekend...

Kentucky has entered into a rather active pattern over much of the upcoming week. Just today, counties along the river across North Central Kentucky recieved in upwards of 2 inches in spots. While numerous showers and storms exit Eastern Kentucky this evening, the current thinking is for scattered coverage to remain overnight, before another round of elevated coverage tomorrow. As was the case today, storms will be capable of producing very heavy rainfall and could lead to localized flooding.

Shower and storm chances then continue through the weekend and into the upcoming work week. Sunday appears to be the one day through the period where Kentucky could see a break.
