A Flood Watch is in effect across the entire area this afternoon and tonight.

Temperatures peaked at midday in most areas, with highs in the lower 60s across most of the area, but sharply colder air remains in northern Kentucky.  Jackson, KY tied a daily record high today, matching January 26th of 2004 at 63 degrees.  Soaking rain will increase through the afternoon and especially into the evening as low pressure draws near from the southwest.  By midnight, rainfall totals will likely climb into the 1" to 2" range in most places.  Some minor river flooding is likely on the heels of this system.  Rain will taper off from west to east tonight, and by Friday morning, only a few eastern Kentucky rain or snow showers will remain.  A pair of weak disturbances will cross the area this weekend, producing a few sprinkles or flurries on Saturday, and potentially a few more snow flurries on a colder Sunday.  High pressure will return early next week, and Monday will be partly sunny and dry.  Rain showers and milder air will be our weather headlines on Tuesday evening and into Wednesday of next week.
