Following strong storms in the mid-South on Wednesday afternoon and evening, a complex of storms survived overnight, bringing heavy rain and plenty of lightning to Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. This is thanks to an area of surface low pressure that has been moving through the region and will continue to bring the storm threat today.
However, our risk for severe weather (1" hail, 58 mph winds, tornadoes) is quite limited with the primary concern for heavy rainfall.
As a result of the rain threat, flood watches are in effect for southern Kentucky through this afternoon. Don't drive through flooded roadways. Rainfall totals on average will be around 1-2 inches. Localized heavier amounts of up to 4 inches will be possible.
