A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for most of southern and eastern Kentucky through Monday night. If you come across a flooded roadway, remember to Turn Around, Don't Drown.

Midnight Update: Some of the heaviest rainfall is now in Fayette County and surrounding cities. The storms are slowly making their way to the north and northeast. While the rainfall moving towards us in western Kentucky is starting to die down, I think it will hold together long enough to reach us early Monday morning.

Temperatures in most cities have now fallen into the low 70s, but Lexington is still at 76°.

Meteorologist Michael Estime will have the latest on our threat for flash flooding starting at 5 a.m. on Good Morning Kentucky.
______________________________________________________________

Slow-moving scattered showers and storms are dropping large amounts or rain over some parts of eastern Kentucky this evening, which is expected to cause more flash flooding. While most of central and southern Kentucky remain dry this evening, more widespread rainfall is expected to arrive tonight and continue into our Monday morning.

Temperatures overnight will drop into the low 70s making for another warm morning. Rain showers could cause a slick drive into work.

More showers and storms are expected during the day Monday. Between storms, expect mostly cloudy skies. The clouds and rain will help hold temperatures back into the low 80s.

As we head into Monday evening, the showers and storms will start to become less widespread.
