The rain has arrived and will continue to dampen plans for Sunday. A Flood Watch is effect for most of the region and will last all day Sunday until 12 AM Monday. This first wave of heavy showers is associated with a warm front that will be supplying overnight warmth and torrential downpours.
Temperatures will rise into the mid-to-upper 60s by daybreak. If you have early-morning plans you will need to avoid bad drainage areas. Significant puddling and standing water on the roadways will be possible.
We will catch a break from the showers by the early-afternoon hours. However, the progression of our next inbound cold front will generate a secondary line showers and even few stronger thunderstorms by the evening hours. The best window of opportunity for severe storms will be for locations south of the Ohio River (Madisonville, Central City and Greenville) between the hours of 5 PM - 7 PM. The biggest risk will be large-size hail and strong wind gust. We will be monitoring all threats. Keep the umbrellas nearby.
