A Flood Warning is in effect in Nicholas and Robertson Counties, where the Licking River should climb above flood stage at Blue Licks Spring over the next 48 hours.
A Flood Watch is in effect until tomorrow morning across central, southern and east-central Kentucky.
Soaking rain will continue to drench the region, with another inch likely today. Temperatures will fall as slightly drier air arrives under the core of upper-level low pressure by Tuesday morning, leaving us with some occasional, lighter rain showers that will mix with a few wet snowflakes in many areas on Tuesday evening. The final showers of light rain mixed with snowflakes will end on Wednesday, with no significant snow accumulations expected. Temperatures will remain chilly with highs only in the 40s from Tuesday through next weekend. Thursday through Saturday will be dry and bright, before the next chance of rain and / or light snow arrives on Sunday.
