A potent low pressure system moved through the Midwest Monday, November 5, 2018. Showers and thunderstorms formed out ahead of the cold front trailing from this system. Central Kentucky saw a lot of rain, but then as the warm front lifted into southern Kentucky, a few storms became severe, causing damage. Three weak tornadoes were confirmed. Flooding was a minor issue as well, as saturated soils continue to allow water to pool from these heavy rain events.

Barn damaged north of Columbia, KY in Adair county.
