Flood Watch issued, heavy rain moves back into the mountains

By  | 

(WYMT) - Enjoy the drier weather now because rain chances increase once again. For tonight we will see clouds starting to increase ahead of the system moving in. Overnight lows will be in the mid-20s.

Sunday - Tuesday
A Flood Watch has been issued for a portion of our area due to the rain moving in Sunday night and sticking around through Tuesday afternoon.

Clouds will increase Sunday as rain chances also increase. Highs will be in the mid-40s with lows in the upper 30s. Once the rain moves in it really does not move out until Tuesday evening.

Monday rainy conditions continue with highs in the mid-50s and lows in the upper 40s to lower 50s.

A cold front will move closer Tuesday bringing in heavier rain. Highs will be near 60 but once the front moves in temperatures will crash into the lower 30s.

Over these three days, our main concern will be localized flooding. We received quite a bit of rain this past week so adding more rain on top of areas that saw flooding last week will be an issue.

Also, mudslides and landslides will be another concern due to heavy rain and fluctuating temperatures.

From Sunday to Tuesday Eastern Kentucky could 1.5"-2.5+".

Extended Forecast
Once this system moves through we will start to clear our Wednesday with a stray chance for a shower in the morning. Highs will be near 50 with overnight lows in the low 30s.

For Valentines Day, weather will be mild with highs in the upper 50s but clouds will be increasing throughout the day with rain chances very late Thursday night.

Another system could be moving into the mountains later in the work week.

We will continue to update you on air, online, and on the WYMT Weather App.
