24-hour First Alert Forecast 270-467-0373

FLOOD WATCH for much of South-Central KY this afternoon through Wednesday morning

WINTER STORM WATCH for all of South-Central KY Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Thickening clouds. Rising temperatures. A few showers later.
5am: 40° 6am: 42° 7am: 42° 8am: 44° 9am: 48° 10am: 51° 11am: 55°

SPRING-LIKE THUNDERSTORMS:
Another round of showers and even a few thunderstorms is likely later today and tonight with another storm system. Heavy rainfall and gusty winds are possible as this storm system likely stalls out along the Commonwealth. Flooding may become a concern as many locations could see 2-3 inches of rain. Heavy rains along with melting snow will definitely cause small streams and creeks to rise. Highs jump into the low to mid 60s this afternoon.

THE NEXT WINTER STORM:
While there is still some uncertainty with regard to amounts, confidence is growing that another winter storm is taking shape for the region beginning Wednesday morning as much colder air moves in. There will be an abrupt drop in temperature which will cause rain to change to freezing rain and sleet from northwest to southeast during the day Wednesday. That will be followed by a change to snow, also from northwest to southeast, Wednesday evening. Specifics on amounts are still a bit uncertain for now but this winter storm could again have a major impact on our area Wednesday night and Thursday. Lows Thursday night with a clear sky and snow pack will drop into the single digits - record territory for March!

HOME EXPO WEEKEND:
The winter weather looks to clear out by Friday with sunshine returning and highs in the mid to upper 30s. Saturday looks sunny with warmer temperatures in the mid to upper 40s and Sunday closer to 50°.
