Thursday, July 28, 2016
24-hour First Alert Forecast 270-467-0373
...FLASH FLOOD WATCH in effect until 7am Friday for most of the WBKO viewing area...
HEAVY RAIN POTENTIAL:
A potent upper-level low over the lower Mississippi Valley moves northeast into our region Thursday. This sends abundant Gulf moisture our way, resulting in more numerous showers and thunderstorms. Widespread rainfall of 2-3" is likely through Thursday night. Localized flooding is also possible. At least the additional cloud cover along with more rain around keeps readings cooler Thursday afternoon, with highs only reaching the lower 80s.
FINAL WEEKEND OF JULY:
Shower and thunderstorm chances decrease Friday into the weekend, but some rain remains possible from time to time through the period. Highs will range from the upper 80s Friday into the weekend before inching back into the low 90s early next week.
