Another heavy dose of rain by Saturday
Models continue to generate 2″-3″ of rain from the expected rain system due to arrive tomorrow night and depart Saturday night. Adding that information to the river forecasts puts the Ohio River at Louisville over Flood Stage early Saturday morning AND continuing to rise through early next week.
Meanwhile, most of KY will get some rain tonight. Only the northern areas should escape the light rain. Along and north of I-64 should stay dry as a weak disturbance moves east over the Gulf states tonight. Only the GFS brings rain as far north as Louisville this evening. And that would be only a very small amount. The other models keep us dry. The GFS hasn’t been on its game lately, so I’ll stick with the dry forecast.
