Flooding and Gusty Winds to Continue through Early Afternoon

Although rains will be exiting east central Kentucky this afternoon...flooding problems will continue through early evening.  See specific flood products for your location by clicking on the map on the home page.

In addition to the flooding issues...winds will continue to gust out of the north/northwest up to 40 to 50 mph through early afternoon mainly east of I-65.  These winds are caused by a tight surface pressure gradient (tightly packed light blue lines in the image below) on the back side of an exiting surface low pressure.
