Midnight Update:  The latest weather models have been trending more to the west with the heavier rain on Thursday.  However, it still looks like we'll have plenty of rain moving all across Kentucky for the 4th of July.  The challenge is pinpointing the exact location of the heaviest rainfall; yet right now that looks to be between I-75 and I-65 in Southern Kentucky.  Areas like Lake Cumberland may pick up over three inches possibly.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect tonight through Friday for all of the viewing area, as abundant rain showers will continue to move over the region. The chance for lingering rain showers will continue for the extende...d forecast as well.

Thursday, 4th of July: With a Flash Flood Watch in effect through Independence Day, we look to have steady rainfall, with periods of heavy rain throughout the day. We are forecasting between one and two inches of rainfall, with isolated +3 inches possible. Because of the rain and clouds, we will have mild temperatures, with a high of 76 degrees.

Friday: Plenty of scattered rain showers and thunderstorms will continue for Friday, with a high of 78 degrees.
