Midnight Update:  We will have lingering rain showers overnight and into Friday, yet the rain will be more scattered in nature.  A Flash Flood Watch is still in effect for all of the viewing area through Friday, with an additional one to two inches of rain possible.  The chance for rain looks to continue into the weekend, with more isolated rain activity for next week.  At last check Somerset has had 3.74" in the past 48 hours.  Rainfall (as of 11pm) in the past 24 hours so far:  1.70" Lexington, 1.96" Frankfort, 2.19" Danville, 1.87" Harrodsburg, 1.51" Richmond, 1.69" Winchester, 1.52" Carlisle, 1.27" Cynthiana, 1.36" Owenton, and 0.32" Jackson.

We have Areal Flood Warnings for counties along and west of I-75 in Central Kentucky through tonight, with Flash Flood Watches for the rest of the viewing area through Friday.
