A ridge of high pressure will bring dry and extremely warm weather to eastern Kentucky today and tonight. A strong cold front will move in from the west Monday and Monday night, and will bring widespread showers and storms to the area through late Tuesday morning. A few storms Monday afternoon and evening could be strong, with strong winds and large hail the primary threats. The rain should come to an end late Tuesday.
Locally heavy rainfall lead to devastating flash flooding for portions of eastern Kentucky on this day back in 2011. One person lost their life in Kayjay in Knott county when flood waters swept a trailer off its foundation. Middlesboro was also hit hard, with a large part of the city underwater for a time.
