Rain chances return this weekend
HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Rockcastle, Jackson, Pulaski, Laurel, Wayne, McCreary, Whitley, Knox, Bell, Harlan, Lee, Knott, Owsley, Perry, Leslie and Letcher County until 8:00 am EDT Monday.
This afternoon scattered showers and thunderstorms return to the mountains. We may get a short break this evening before we see more storms arrive late overnight. Overnight lows will be in the mid to upper 60s.
Sunday looks a lot more on the soggy side. Highs will only get into the upper 70s with mostly cloudy skies. Right now the Storm Prediction Center has most of us in a slight risk (2 out of 5) for severe weather. We will see thunderstorms continuing throughout the day, with our biggest threats looking to be heavy rain, gusty winds, and some hail. Just keep the WYMT Weather App handy throughout the day.
The soggy and gloomy weather continues into the new week. Highs will be in the low to mid-80s throughout the week. Scattered rain chances look to continue for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
I hope we start to dry out by the end of the week, but some models have rain chances hanging on all the way into next Saturday. I think this is going to be one of those weeks where you need to keep an umbrella in your car, in case a shower does pop-up.
