Tree uprooted during storm

CORBIN — By Carl Keith Greene / Staff Writer

About 2:15 p.m. Wednesday a tree was uprooted in London on Foister Heights Street east of London.

It was the only weather incident in the Tri-county area that was reported to the National Weather Service in Jackson.

Today the weather service predicts today through Tuesday thunderstorms mostly during the afternoon and evening.

This afternoon some of the thunderstorms may contain heavy rain and produce local nuisance flooding.

Ditches and low water crossings will be running full.

A flash flood watch will be in effect today through Friday evening.

Heavy rain along and south of Hal Rogers Parkway with a round of heavy rain in the afternoon has on previous days produced several areas of active flash flooding.

A cold front is approaching in the southeastern portion of the state overnight Thursday.

The heat of the day will cause an unstable air mass over the southeast which will be lifted by the front and will create an area of excessive rainfall.

That rainfall has been in an area that has experienced the heaviest rainfall and at least can absorb another round of rain.

Rain at the Magee Field, London-Corbin airport from 6 p.m. on Tuesday to 6 p.m. Wednesday totaled .11 inches.

And the high temperature at London was 88 degrees at about 2 p.m.
