Kentucky Agricultural Weather Outlook Updated Wednesday Evening, February 21, 2018

...Very Wet Wednesday through the Weekend ...

Combined with today's rainfall, looking at the potential for 3 to 6+ inches of rainfall through the weekend. In fact, widespread showers is in the forecast each day. The highest totals are expected across Western and Central Kentucky and the lowest across Southeastern Kentucky. This will be on top of already saturated grounds. The state has averaged over 4 inches through February so far. Average rainfall for the month is 3.68. Based on preliminary data with the UK Ag Weather Center, the additional rainfall looks to push Kentucky close, if not into, the top 10 wettest February's on record for the state.

This will likely result in more flooding across the area. A Flood Watch has been issued for much of the western half of Kentucky and into the Bluegrass.

For livestock producers, now is time to make sure livestock are out of low lying locations.

For drivers, if water is crossing the roadway, turn around. Two feet of water can move a car. It is also possible the road has been washed out.
