Early storm drops rain on local area

Staff report

A storm that came through Paducah early Sunday morning resulted in nearly an inch of rain in the area.

Dave Purdy, meteorological technician with the National Weather Service in Paducah, said Paducah received about .91 inch of rain between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m.

He said the NWS did not receive reports of any damage near Paducah, although he said some utility trucks were seen out working Sunday morning and some stoplights in Paducah were flashing. Purdy said regions in southern Illinois and southwestern Indiana were hit harder than Paducah, with some areas reporting between 3 and 4 inches of rainfall. While most of the heavy storms had passed Paducah by 6 a.m., regions in Illinois were still receiving rain Sunday afternoon.

Purdy said there is a 40 to 50 percent chance of rain in Paducah on Monday and Tuesday, which he said is up from the normal 20 to 30 percent chance at this time of year. He said the NWS will continue to monitor for any flash flood risks.
