It's been a rainy stretch of weather across Kentuckiana the last few days. As of this morning, communities Northwest of the city had recorded 5+ inches of rain in the last three days. Below is the 24 hour precip chart ending at 7am (remember the rain continued through this evening so the numbers will be higher) and totals for the last three days. Impressive for many.
In fact as of 4 PM Louisville broke a record for the highest rainfall total to date - 2.33", breaking the previous record of 1.08" set in 1899.
We'll shift focus from the flooding rains, yes minor flooding continues this evening in flood prone areas, to much colder temperatures. There's been significant rainfall the last few days and the ground is saturated. Because of this, moisture will remain on the roads and elevated surfaces. As the temperatures fall (it's 30 degrees COLDER at 8pm this evening than it was 24 hours ago - crazy!) moisture may freeze overnight which could lead to some slick spots by tomorrow morning.
Expect temperatures in the 20s by tomorrow morning, a far cry from where we've been the last few days. With temperatures below freezing give yourself some extra time tomorrow morning due to possible black ice.
