Tuesday Afternoon Update On Harvey

Good afternoon, everyone. We continue to track scattered showers and storms across the region today, but the main focus of the forecast is on Harvey heading our way. Harvey could bring very heavy rain and a flood threat to much of the bluegrass state.

Before we get to the latest on Harvey, let’s track the scattered showers and storms of today…

From there, we focus on Harvey. The storm is over water, but is finally starting to move and will likely make another landfall along the Texas/Louisiana coast later tonight or Wednesday. Once inland, the updated track from the National Hurricane Center brings this across Kentucky…

That is the now spitting image of the forecast map I drew up 2 days ago…

One thing you guys have probably noticed about me through the years is, when I hand draw a map for an event, I’m pretty confident.

Wednesday will find us mainly in between systems, but a band of showers and storms from out in front of Harvey may move into southern parts of the state.

The main action from Harvey arrives later Thursday, with the greatest emphasis on Friday and Saturday. That’s when things take a turn for the worse, with the potential for a wide corridor of flooding rains.

The GFS and Canadian Models are similar in bringing the system into Kentucky…


I will hone in on the best chance for flooding on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm and will update things as needed on the blog.

After all this rain, things get really cool later next week. That’s some real deal early season chill showing up.

Btw… Play nice in the comments section. To each his or her own.

Enjoy your day and take care.

    Very active in the tropical Atlantic. Off the coast of Africa, another storm is beginning to take shape. As it moves west, conditions are favorable for further development: http://www.weatherstreet.com/hurricane/2017/Hurricane-Atlantic-2017.htm

    All the snow lovers wish this was in the form of snow a few months from now.

    I’ve been glued to 24/7 news watching the Houston footage. It looks like Beaumont is getting it just as bad. In 1984, I actually was in Beaumont visiting family with my grandparents. I’m trying to wrap my brain around how long this is going to take to clean up…it’s like miles and miles of super dense population horribly flooded. It’s amazing what remnants of storms like this can dump, even as they move inland….but this….this thing has just sat there for what seems like FOREVER! I just wish it would leave and move on away from that area

    Houston official location at Bush International (IAH) is closing in on wettest year ever….record is 72.86″. Through 4 pm, the total stands at 70.78″, just behind 2001’s total of 71.19″ when TS Allison deluged the area in June of that year. That’s amazing because there is still 4 more months to go.
