LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – After a very active morning with heavy rainfall and catastrophic flash flooding across southern and southeastern Kentucky, conditions are expected to trend drier into this afternoon.

Rain amounts ranged from six to 12+ inches for some areas and led to total devastation. Here’s a look at those totals:

While a few showers or storms cannot be ruled out later today, most are on the drier side with warm and muggy highs in the mid to possibly upper 80s.

Thursday night, the forecast ramps back up as our next wave of showers and storms move through the region.

Heavy rain, gusty winds, and lightning are all likely with this activity with flash flooding remaining a big concern for many. Otherwise, lows are warm as temperatures drop into the low 70s.

The stalled boundary that has been hanging out across the state all week is finally swept eastward through Friday by a cold front. This front will bring another round of showers and storms with the flooding threat remaining high.

Highs are running below normal Friday with highs around 80 degrees. Additional rain amounts of one to three inches will be possible.

We catch a break from the rain and humidity to start to the weekend as highs climb into the 70s and low 80s. Unfortunately, the break does not last long with another round of showers and storms on tap Sunday and into early next week.

Into next mid-week, it looks like skies start to finally dry out but a big dome of high pressure brings excessive heat into the region. Highs will climb back into the 90s by next Wednesday.
