Rain falling, more coming to Kentucky

Associated Press - October 25, 2010 7:14 AM ET

JACKSON, Ky. (AP) - Welcome rain has been falling in Kentucky. The heaviest of it is along the Tennessee border.

National Weather Service forecaster Tony Edwards in Jackson says about 1 1/4 inches had fallen by dawn Monday near Monticello. Another quarter-inch was likely.

At sunrise, most of the rain extended eastward from Bowling Green through Somerset, Corbin and northward to Lexington.

There has been no severe weather reported overnight in Kentucky.

A cold front that will push into the Bluegrass State on Tuesday will bring gusty winds and rain.

Edwards says there's an increased chance of a severe weather outbreak when the front arrives.
