The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for Lexington and most of central Kentucky. The watch goes into effect Wednesday mid-afternoon through Thursday morning
Rainfall of 1 to 2 inches with locally higher amounts possible.
Rain will move in Wednesday afternoon with heavier intense rain bands moving in Wednesday evening, increasing the risk for flash flooding.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation. All of the rain will runoff leading to an increased threat of
rising rivers…some which will go into flood stages.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
