Soggy conditions continue, warmer temperatures on the way

By  | 

(WYMT) - A Flood Watch is still in effect for a good portion of Eastern Kentucky through Tuesday afternoon.

Tonight - Tuesday
Tonight rain chances continue with overnight lows dropping into the mid to upper 30s around midnight. Temperatures will start to warm up throughout the rest of the night into Monday.

For Monday, rainy conditions continue. Throughout the day, temperatures will increase until we reach our high temperature in the mid-50s. Temperatures will not decrease at all on Monday night so lows will be in the 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. We could also see a few thunderstorms Tuesday ahead of the cold front.

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 extreme temperature change.

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 flurries in the morning. Highs will in the low to mid-40s 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. 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.
