Harvey Blasts The Bluegrass State

Good Friday, everyone. Harvey is rolling across the bluegrass state, bringing the threat for flooding rains and a few severe storms. This slow-moving system will also provide us with some wild temperature swings and very gusty winds.

Here are a few thoughts on how things may play out…

  • The heaviest rains will target central and western Kentucky, with the Interstate 65 corridor being the prime areas for some 6″+ totals.
  • Many areas average 2″-5″ of rain through Saturday, with lighter amounts in the east and southeast. These areas may average 1″-3″
  • The flood threat is very high, with the potential for significant flooding for areas picking up 4″ or more of rain.
  • The threat for severe storms is there across the south and southeast. Isolated tornadoes can’t be ruled out. This will be especially true for areas getting in on periods of sunshine.
  • Winds will be very gusty and we will likely see a corridor of 40mph gusts showing up along and north of the center of circulation.
  • Leftover showers will be noted through Saturday with temps struggling to get to into the 60s across the eastern half of the state. Record cool high temps are possible.

Even with a cold and a shaky voice, I will be on WKYT-TV throughout the day. Here are your tracking tools…
