Wednesday Evening Update

Good evening, gang. I wanted to drop by for a quick update on the major impact Harvey is going to bring our way over the next few days. From flooding rains to an isolated tornado, we have a lot to track Thursday through the first part of Saturday.

The center of Harvey will pass right on top of Kentucky Thursday night through Friday night. This will bring the heaviest rain and greatest flood threat for areas along and north/west of the low. Here’s the updated rainfall forecast…

Gusty winds will also be a significant issue, with some gusts potentially reaching 40mph +…


I’m also watching areas south and southeast of the center of circulation for the potential for isolated tornadoes. While the greatest threat is likely south of Kentucky, here’s the area to keep an eye on…

Temperatures behind the low drop into the 50s  Friday afternoon into Friday evening. Leftover showers and clouds will likely keep areas of central and eastern Kentucky in the 50s for highs on Saturday. Hard to believe this is also a Pot Of Chili ALERT.

I will have a ton of tracking tools for you guys with my next update. Make it a good one and take care.

    Why do the models show the worst winds west of the center?

    Record “low high” is 62 for Lexington on Friday and 66 on Saturday. Sounds like we may have a shot at breaking one or both of those.
