  • Hydrologic Outlook for Magoffin County, Kentucky
  • Hydrologic Outlook issued March 27 at 3:30PM EDT by NWS
  • Effective: Wednesday, March 28, 2018 at 2:25 a.m.
  • Expires: Wednesday, March 28, 2018 at 5 a.m.
  • ...Flooding Possible Late Wednesday Night through Thursday...
    A frontal boundary will approach and stall across the area,
    bringing multiple rounds of rainfall to eastern Kentucky. The
    first round will move in late tonight and through the day on
    Wednesday, with a second and potentially more intense round of
    rainfall late Wednesday night into the day on Thursday. Rainfall
    amounts will range from one to two and a half inches. This could
    lead to minor flooding of low lying areas as well as eventually
    bring significant rises to area rivers.
    A fair amount of uncertainty remains with respect to the
    timing and track of each round of rainfall. Keep updated on the
    excessive rainfall potential through the week. Flood watches or
    warnings may need to be issued at a later time.
