A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 10 PM along and east of a line connecting Bell, Knox, Clay, Owsley, Breathitt, Magoffin, Johnson and Lawrence Counties, east to Virginia and West Virginia.

Slow-moving showers and thunderstorms produced flash flooding in several parts of eastern Kentucky yesterday, and today will bring a similar round of afternoon downpours.  Showers and thunderstorms will develop around midday and through the afternoon, with the most widespread storms in far eastern Kentucky, and just some scattered, hit-or-miss thunderstorms along I-75.  Low pressure will very slowly drift away to the east over the next few days, so isolated showers and thunderstorms will remain possible, especially east of I-75, again on Wednesday.  By Thursday, they'll be restricted only to extreme eastern Kentucky.  After a couple of days in the 70s, skies will become brighter and we'll warm into the 80s on Thursday and Friday, and all the way into the lower 90s on Saturday and Sunday.  Memorial Day weekend will bring the hottest weather we've had since last summer.  Friday and Saturday will be dry, region-wide, before some isolated thunderstorms creep back into the forecast late on Sunday and into Memorial Day Monday.
