flood watch east KY

by

low pressure forming along the front is slowing down the system plus enhancing rainfall. this was picked up by the NAM which is often overdone on QPF. This will raise totals for rain to the 3/4- 2 inches range and lead to the potential for high water in spots. Thus a flood watch has been issued for eastern KY.
