    Severe Weather Alert Day

    I'm issuing a Severe Weather Alert starting this afternoon into early Saturday morning. With the remnants of Cindy looking the past through Kentucky parts of the state is in a Marginal Risk Area for today. Tomorrow the threat ramps up with the possibility of strong to severe storms . The Storm Prediction Center has parts of Kentucky in a Slight Risk Area for strong to severe storms mainly east of I-65 and from just north of I-64 southward.

    Friday look for storms that could produce a few tornadoes ans strong to damaging wind gusts. As of now it looks like the best time for these storms will be Friday afternoon and evening. I will post an update later today. Everyone should be weather aware from now through early Saturday morning.

    Flash Flood Watch for WKY until Friday evening.


    ...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM 1 PM CDT THIS AFTERNOON
    THROUGH FRIDAY EVENING...

    The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a

    * Flash Flood Watch for portions of southern Illinois, southwest
    Indiana, western Kentucky, and southeast Missouri, including
    the following areas, in southern Illinois, Hardin, Massac, and
    Pope. In southwest Indiana, Spencer and Warrick. In western
    Kentucky, Ballard, Caldwell, Calloway, Carlisle, Christian,
    Crittenden, Daviess, Fulton, Graves, Henderson, Hickman,
    Hopkins, Livingston, Lyon, Marshall, McCracken, McLean,
    Muhlenberg, Todd, Trigg, Union KY, and Webster. In southeast
    Missouri, Mississippi and New Madrid.

    * From 1 PM CDT this afternoon through Friday evening

    * Scattered thunderstorms will likely develop this afternoon. Any
    storms will be accompanied by tropical downpours. A more
    organized area of heavy rain is expected to arrive tonight and
    continue through Friday. Rainfall amounts through Friday will
    likely average from 2 to 4 inches in the watch area. Locally
    higher amounts are possible where thunderstorms are persistent.

    * High rainfall rates could lead to rapid inundation of flood-
    prone roadways. Sharp rises in creeks and small streams may
    occur. Low-lying areas may quickly become flooded.

    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
    to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

    You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
    should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.

    Thursday evening update:

    The Storm Prediction Center has expanded the Slight Risk Area for strong to severe storms for Friday. Thunderstorms could effect parts of Kentucky Friday into Friday evening, accompanied by a risk for potentially damaging wind gusts and perhaps a few tornadoes. The timing, at the moment, for the possible severe storms looks to be between 2-8 pm EDT for those in the Slight Risk Area.

    Most, if not all of Kentucky is now under a Moderate Risk for rainfall that could exceed flash flooding criteria. The entire state is now under a flash flood watch 8 am EDT Saturday morning. The heaviest accumulation band has been moved northward. It looks like 4-6" of rain could fall from around Owensboro northeastward to around Maysville throught 8 am EDT Saturday morning. This simulated radar shows the heaviest precipitation as it moves across the state from around mid afternoon into the night time hours.

    Not any problems at all most of the system will be out of Kentucky by that time. You may run into show showers/rain in SEKY. Temps in the mid 60s to low 70s.
