A Flood Watch has been issued for most of southern and eastern Kentucky through Monday afternoon. Moderate to heavy rain showers will move over areas that have already seen multiple inches of precipitation in the previous few days, causing some creeks and rivers to push out of their banks.

A Flood Warning is in effect for the Kentucky River in parts of Estill County.
A Flood Warning is in effect for the Cumberland River in parts of Whitley and Knox Counties.

Midnight Update: Visibilities are being reduced in many areas due to low clouds and fog. Visibilities in some areas will likely stay reduced into the morning commute.

The rain continues, mainly in southern and eastern Kentucky. Lexington will likely be dry in the sky by Monday morning.

Temperatures have climbed slightly in central Kentucky tonight with Lexington now at 36°. It's even warmer further south with London coming in at 50°! This will help to quickly melt a lot of the ice in the region.

The ice and snow have moved on, but another round of rain showers is pushing through Kentucky tonight. The heaviest rain will move through southern and eastern Kentucky Sunday night and Monday morning, where flooding is a concern.

Most areas in central Kentucky will dry out by the Monday morning commute. Temperatures should stay just above freezing through the night, keeping everything as rain, and preventing more accumulation of ice on roads and sidewalks.

The rest of the region will dry out Monday afternoon with cloudy skies. Highs will only be in the mid 30s.

A few snow showers will be possible Monday night into Tuesday morning with the arrival of our next round of colder air.
