Friday Evening and Friday Night Rainfall

Showers developed across the Tennessee Valley on Friday afternoon and lifted north across the region during the late afternoon and evening hours. Additional showers and thunderstorms moved into the region and developed overnight as instability incrased a few thousand feet above the ground. This led to some briefly heavy rain in thunderstorms during the wee hours of Saturday morning. A few locations generally near the Mountain Parkway and the Hal Rogers Parkway corridors and locations in between picked up 1.50 to 2.00 inches of rainfall, with the locally higher amounts falling in Breathitt, Floyd, Magoffin, and Rockcaslte Counties. Locations north of the region received wintry precipitation.

Below are two maps of estimated rainfall from this event, the first is for locations in Eastern Kentucky, and the second map is a broader view for the entire state of Kentucky.
