Showers will continue to move through the mountains

By  | 

(WYMT) - Flooding will continue to be an issue throughout the evening and into tonight as showers continue to move through the mountains.

The Flash Flood Watch for Bell, Knox, Laurel, McCreary, Pulaski, Wayne, Whitley, Perry, Harlan, Leslie and Letcher County until 6 p.m. tonight. Heavy rain is likely today in those areas. Please remember to turn around and don't drown if you come across high water over a road.

While the bulk of the rain should stay in that area, some of it could drift north. While the Mountain Parkway/I-64 corridor could have sunshine at times, most of us will stay cloudy today.

The rain chances start to taper off as we head into the evening hours tonight, but will still be around for a while. Fog will develop again late as we drop into the mid to upper 60s.

This Weekend
We will hang onto the rain chances for the weekend which could provide more flooding issues.

For Saturday we will increase the rain chances to 40% and down to 30% on Sunday. The good news is that we should see some sunshine mixed with clouds both days.

Highs will top out in the low to mid-80s with lows dropping into the mid-60s.

Extended Forecast
We will decrease the rain chances as we head into the new work week. We will see only a 20% chance of showers and storms throughout most of the work week as high pressure looks to set up over our region Tuesday and Wednesday. We could see another frontal system move into our area late next week. We will keep an eye on the rain chances throughout the week.

As always you can stay updated online, on social media and on our WYMT Weather App.
