A nearly stationary front across western Kentucky became the focus for a cluster of thunderstorms Wednesday night. This cluster of storms persisted for a few hours from around midnight until 3 A.M. Below is the storm-total rainfall estimate from the radar at Paducah. The radar estimates correlated very closely with the actual reported amounts.
The maximum rainfall was about 7 inches where the pink and purple colors are located over extreme northeast Christian County. A co-operative observer in Crofton measured 6.97 inches. Water was up to the headlights of vehicles in Crofton. Flash flooding of roads was reported in the Todd County community of Allegre.
