24-hour Precipitation Across Central Kentucky & Southern Indiana Ending Monday, November 21

 

Plenty of rain has been falling across central Kentucky and south-central Indiana since Sunday. This has been due to a front and associated low pressure system that began to slowly make its way across the Ohio Valley. Eventually, the frontal boundary stalled out overhead and became stationary. Hence why some areas have continued to see showers and thunderstorms track across the same locations over and over again. This phenomenon is known as training, where the same areas continue to see rain repeatedly over a relatively short time period. Some of the locally higher amounts of recorded precipitation can also be attributed to storms that contained heavier amounts of rainfall. Kentuckiana can expect to see similar rainy conditions over the next day or two.
