Hey @nWo/anyone as all the snow melts and some rain is in the forecast later this week will there be any flooding in Kentucky and/or any issues with river levels?

Look for flooding issues starting Sunday through Monday or Tuesday. The real heavy rain is not forecast to move in till Sunday. At this time, I'd say those around and south of the Cumberland Parkway are looking at some definite  flooding issues. They could get 2-5 inches of rain by the time the rain moves out on Monday. From I-64 down to the Cumberland 1-3 inches. The amounts increase the further south you go. 

I'll post all the details later today.

We were just discussing this last week, after seeing the temps were supposed to warm up this week.  Given the amount of snow Kentucky has had on the ground for the past couple of weeks, I would think the Mississippi could really have some issues from everything the Ohio River will dump into it.

Flooding will be a good possibility starting on Sunday. An initial batch of rain will move in on Saturday and then there will be a break until Sunday. That is when the heaviest rain will be possible starting on Sunday and last into the day on Monday. The models are showing a general 2-5 inches of rain will be possible. Mainly south of I-64 with the heaviest amounts the further south you go towards the Tennessee border. One thing to note is the Euro and Canadian are only updated every twelve hours while the GFS is every 6 hours. Some are behind the GFS.

Let's look at the GFS. First the radar. It is from Saturday at 4 am EST to Monday at 10 am EST



Next the EURO. It covers the time period from 1 am EST Saturday morning to 7 am EST Monday morning.



Last the Canadian and it covers the from 7 am EST Friday morning to 1 pm EST Monday.



Now for what each model is showing for possible accumulations.






The Canadian



As everyone can see there is still some uncertainty to the exact timing, track and amounts. Some look for some changes as we get closer. One more thing. The Weather Prediction Center in the 3-7 day hazards outlook has Kentucky receiving heavy rain this weekend.

Nothing significant in Louisville through at least the end of the week, I'll keep an eye on it. 



For now most of the heaviest rain will be south of I-64 with the heaviest accumulations in southern Kentucky.

What about the Ohio River @nWo?

Right now I don't think it will be much of a problem because the track the models are showing show only around around 1 inch of rain. Of course that could change if the model shifts the track northward.
