Severe Weather Risk Updated

From Jude Redfield (Friday 11:15am)...

    Locally heavy rain this morning in southern Kentucky has a prompted flash flood warnings. Parts of Adair county has a flood risk into the early afternoon.  Most of this should taper off in the next few hours.

    With so much moisture fueling storms locally heavy rain will happen, where storms develop. Rain rates of 3" per hour are likely. Thankfully most of us will not have that kind of rain lasting for that long of a period.  Brief downpours will be vicious! Scattered strong storms are likely through Sunday morning. A few storms over the next 48 hours will hit severe weather criteria most likely. This means some storms would be capable of producing straight line wind gusts to 58mph or greater along with hail of an inch in diameter or larger. We aren't forecasting an outbreak of severe weather, but be weather aware if you have outdoor plans today or tomorrow.  The good news to all of this is we should have LOTS of time when it isn't raining or storming. Hopefully your weekend fun won't be impacted.
