The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for the southern part of our area until 7 PM Central time tonight. Heavy rain is already causing flash flooding in some of these communities and more rain and storms could make the problem worse throughout the day.
We had a report of 3.25" in Roanoke and then go this video from Bardstown!
Do not drive through water over the road; turn around and find a different way to your destination. Below is the text from the National Weather Service office in Louisville issued with the Watch this morning:
A LINE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL PERSIST ACROSS PORTIONS OF CENTRAL KENTUCKY THIS MORNING AND POTENTIALLY RESULT IN FLASH FLOODING. ADDITIONAL SHOWERS AND STORMS ARE LIKELY TO FIRE OFF THIS AFTERNOON AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT AND COULD CONTRIBUTE TO ADDITIONAL FLOODING. THE FLOOD THREAT SHOULD END LATE THIS EVENING AS THE COLD FRONT PUSHES THROUGH THE REGION.
