Rain chances continue through today, windy conditions likely at times

HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - Our WYMT Severe Weather Alert Day coverage continues on this Tuesday. 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 this afternoon or early evening.

A Wind Advisory goes into effect at 1 p.m. today going through 1 a.m. tonight for Estill, Powell, Rockcastle, Pulaski, Jackson and Wayne County.

Today and Tonight
Heavy rain has fallen throughout the night in some areas and will continue to fall across the region off and on today. Temperatures will climb close to 60 by early this afternoon. We could still see between half an inch and a little more than 1" of rain between this morning and tonight before everything starts to taper off.

The cold front will swing through this evening, which could mean a transition over to snow for a short time later tonight as temps drop. It shouldn't last too long, because most of the moisture will be gone by that time. Lows will drop to around 30 overnight. We're not expecting too many issues, thanks to warm ground and pavement temperatures.

Extended Forecast
Once this system moves through we will start to clear out Wednesday with a stray chance for snow 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.
