Monday evening began a pattern of continual precipitation throughout the Mid-South, and the rainfall amounts for the past 24 hours have been rather impressive in the Mid-South, with the bulk of the precipitation having fallen from thunderstorms at around 2am. The Warren County Kentucky Mesonet Site has measured 1.83 in. of rain since midnight, and The National Weather Service in Louisville issued this graphic of interpolated precipitation data through today.
The rain will be coming to an end later today, and will be followed by a sharp cool down as the cold front finally progresses through the area and the cold Canadian air moves into the area. However, forecast models have been persistent with building a ridge over the Southeast again, thus supporting more unseasonable warmth for next week.
