Numerous showers and thunderstorms fell from the Plains into the Ohio Valley on Wednesday, producing more than 3" of rain in some areas with flooding. More thunderstorms are ahead today (Thursday) with a risk for flooding in Indiana and Kentucky along the Ohio River. Flash Flood Watches have been issued into this afternoon, centered near Louisville. A front is dropping slowly south from the Great Lakes to the Plains. High humidity ahead of the system will provide significant moisture for thunderstorms to produce heavy rainfall. Coverage will be scattered and not widespread, but amounts could reach higher than 3" in the heaviest storms. This could lead to flooding, especially in areas where soils are over-saturated.
