Episode Narrative A warm front moved slowly north across western Kentucky during the afternoon. Large clusters of thunderstorms produced very heavy rain. A cold front moved southeast into the Lower Ohio Valley during the night, preceded by more thunderstorms. These storms produced a report of wind damage and a tornado. Rainfall for the 24-hour period ranged from 2 to 4 inches across most of western Kentucky, with isolated amounts of 4 to 7 inches. The isolated higher amounts were mostly from Madisonville to Marion.
Event Narrative The north fork of the Little River off of U.S. Highway 68 was out of its banks. The floodwaters covered a road, which was closed. U.S. Highway 41 was flooded at the 5 mile marker, but was not closed. Rainfall was 2.5 inches.
