Flooding Rain & Severe Storm Threat this Evening

The southern half of the Tri State is under a risk of severe storms.

Posted: Feb 28, 2021 8:57 AM

The morning rainfall will begin the taper off from west-to-east. Flash flooding will continue to remain a concern especially in low-lined areas. Many communities along and north of the Ohio River have already received over 1.5" of rain with even more to come. Luckily will catch a break from the heavy downpours by the late morning through the afternoon.

However, by the evening our next inbound cold front could give parts of the Tri State a chance for severe storms. As of 9 AM, most of our Kentucky communities are under a "1" out of 5 on the Severe Threat Index. This is an isolated and marginal threat but worth watching. Through the afternoon hours the atmosphere will remain mild and moist for the initiation for stronger thunderstorms as the front progresses through.

The primary threats will be strong wind gust, large-size hail and even a few short-lived tornadoes. The hours of 5 PM through 8 PM will be best opportunity for those severe storms to develop. Communities along highway 60 and south (Morganfield, Madisonville, Owensboro & Greenville) should be weather-aware between those hours. We will keep you updated in the coming hours.
