Heavy rain likely the next couple of days

HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - A Flood Watch is in effect for all of Eastern and Southern Kentucky. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for parts of Southwest Virginia and East Tennessee. Both of those run through Tuesday afternoon or early evening.

Today and Tomorrow
The rain chances continue off and on through the next couple of days. It will be a dreary couple of days, to say the least.

The threat of localized flooding is definitely there with the saturated ground. The threat of mudslides and rockslides are also increased as well.

Be careful out there. It will likely be foggy at times for the next couple of days too. Temperatures will climb into the mid 50s this afternoon. They should drop to around 50 at midnight, which will be your overnight low as temps climb the rest of the overnight.

Highs will get close to 60 on Tuesday before crashing that night behind the front. Lows will dive to around 30 by Wednesday morning. We could also see a few snowflakes before the system exits the area.

Extended Forecast
Once this system moves through we will start to clear our Wednesday with a stray chance for flurries in the morning. Highs will in the low to mid-40s with overnight lows in the low to mid 30s.

For Valentine's 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. Dinner plans look dry!

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.
