Episode Narrative A weak low level jet and the approach of a surface trough led to the development of numerous thunderstorms during the early morning hours on May 29th. A few storms produced isolated instances of large hail and damaging winds. One slow moving cluster of storms produced excessive rainfall across Floyd and southern Clark Counties, located just across the river from Louisville. Despite antecedent dry conditions, an estimated 3 inches of rain falling within 3 hours produced scattered street flooding.
Event Narrative Law enforcement in Jeffersonville reported cars were stalled within several flooded intersections.
