24-Hour Precipitation Maps with Updated Year-to-Date Graphs

 

The above map shows the amount of rain that has fallen over the last 24-hours ending at 7am Wednesday morning across south-central Indiana and central Kentucky. The rain that fell was associated with a surface low pressure system with a trailing cold front that tracked across the Ohio Valley Tuesday into Wednesday. Some of the higher pockets of rain observed were due to heavier showers that moved across those locations. Overall, the last 24-hours have had less amounts of rain recorded than the previous 24-hours.
