...HEAVY RAIN AND FLOODING POSSIBLE NEXT WEEK...

A COUPLE OF ROUNDS OF PRECIPITATION ARE EXPECTED ACROSS EAST
KENTUCKY LATE IN THE WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK AS A FRONTAL
BOUNDARY OSCILLATES NORTH AND SOUTH ACROSS THE STATE. THE FIRST
ROUND OF PRECIPITATION LATE SATURDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY MORNING IS
NOT EXPECTED TO PRODUCE EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF RAINFALL. HOWEVER...A
SECOND ROUND OF PRECIPITATION LASTING FROM LATE MONDAY NIGHT
THROUGH MIDWEEK WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE HEAVY RAINFALL
AMOUNTS. ALL IN ALL...A COMBINED TOTAL OF TWO TO FOUR INCHES OF
RAIN IS EXPECTED ACROSS EAST KENTUCKY NEXT WEEK.

IN ADDITION TO THE POTENTIAL HEAVY AMOUNTS OF RAIN...A FEW TO
SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW REMAIN ON THE GROUND OVER MUCH OF EASTERN
KENTUCKY...WITH THIS SNOW HOLDING A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF WATER
CONTENT...PARTICULARLY ACROSS THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS BORDERING
VIRGINIA AND IN NEARBY PORTIONS OF VIRGINIA AND WEST VIRGINIA.
THESE HIGHER ELEVATION LOCATIONS ARE THE HEADWATER REGIONS FOR
THE CUMBERLAND...KENTUCKY...AND BIG SANDY RIVERS AND THIS MELTING
SNOWPACK WILL CONTRIBUTE SIGNIFICANTLY TO THE POTENTIAL RUNOFF
INTO THESE RIVERS NEXT WEEK.

SMALL STREAMS AND CREEKS SHOULD BE THE FIRST TO EXPERIENCE
SUBSTANTIAL RISES AND POSSIBLE FLOODING NEXT WEEK. AS THE WATER
COLLECTS INTO THE LARGER CREEKS AND RIVERS...SIGNIFICANT RISES AND
AT LEAST MINOR RIVER FLOODING IS LIKELY. MORE SIGNIFICANT RIVER
FLOODING IS POSSIBLE...BUT THE SEVERITY OF ANY RIVER FLOODING IS
STILL IN QUESTION AND WILL DEPEND SIGNIFICANTLY ON WHERE THE
HEAVIEST RAIN FALLS.

...HEAVY RAIN AND FLOODING POSSIBLE NEXT WEEK...

A PROLONGED PERIOD OF SOUTHERLY TO SOUTHWESTERLY MOIST FLOW IS
EXPECTED TO DEVELOP FROM THE END OF THE WEEKEND AND PERSIST
THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. A FEW TO SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW
REMAIN ON THE GROUND OVER MUCH OF EASTERN KY...WITH THIS SNOW
HOLDING A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF WATER IN IT...PARTICULARLY ACROSS
THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS BORDERING VIRGINIA AND IN NEARBY PORTIONS OF
VIRGINIA AND WEST VIRGINIA. THESE HIGHER ELEVATION LOCATIONS NEAR
THE VIRGINIA BORDER AND ADJACENT AREAS OF VIRGINIA AND WEST
VIRGINIA ARE THE HEADWATER REGIONS FOR THE CUMBERLAND...KENTUCKY...
AS WELL AS THE LEVISA FORK OF THE BIG SANDY RIVER AND TUG FORK OF
THE BIG SANDY RIVER.

AS THE MOISTURE INCREASES LATE IN THE WEEKEND...TEMPERATURES ARE
ALSO EXPECTED TO WARM AND BEGIN TO MELT THE SNOWPACK QUITE
RAPIDLY. ALTHOUGH THERE IS SOME UNCERTAINTY ON THE TIMING AND
DISTRIBUTION OF HEAVY RAIN LATE IN THE WEEKEND THROUGH THE MIDDLE
OF NEXT WEEK...IT APPEARS THAT HEAVY RAIN WILL FALL AT TIMES
ACROSS THE ENTIRE REGION. AS THIS WEATHER UNFOLDS LATE IN THE
WEEKEND...AND ESPECIALLY THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT
WEEK...SNOWMELT WILL OCCUR ACROSS THE REGION AND THE HEADWATER
REGIONS OF THE LARGER RIVERS. THIS WILL SATURATE THE GROUND AND
PRIME THE REGION FOR POTENTIAL LATER FLOODING. SMALL STREAMS AND
CREEKS SHOULD BE THE FIRST TO EXPERIENCE SUBSTANTIAL RISES AND
POSSIBLE FLOODING. AS THE WATER COLLECTS INTO THE LARGER CREEKS
AND RIVERS...SIGNIFICANT RISES AND FLOODING APPEAR POSSIBLE...IF
NOT LIKELY AND MAJOR FLOODING COULD OCCUR IN SOME AREAS. SOME
RECENT MODEL GUIDANCE SUGGESTS THAT THIS HEAVY RAIN EVENT NEXT
WEEK COULD POTENTIALLY LEAD TO THE MOST SIGNIFICANT AND WIDESPREAD
RIVER FLOODING ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY IN OVER A DECADE.
