Good Monday, everyone. Historic Irma continues to slowly weaken, but will still pack tropical storm force winds into much of the southeastern United States. As the remnants inch closer to us, rain overspreads the region later today into early Tuesday.
You don’t need me to recap everything from Irma. It’s been a devastating storm for much of Florida and may produce wind damage all the way through Georgia, Alabama into Tennessee.
The latest on the storm…
You can see how the remnant low works into Kentucky by late Wednesday and Thursday. The models are tracking that well…
We will need to watch that system to see if it produces some slow-moving showers and storms that can cause local high water. The rains will be tropical in nature, so it’s possible.
Speaking of tropical rains, those arrive in here from southeast to northwest this evening into tonight. Heavy rain amounts of 1″-2″ will be possible in a few areas. Winds will also be very gusty and could reach 35mph in higher gusts late tonight and Tuesday.
Track the tropical drops…
After we get through Irma, our attention turns toward Jose and a potential east coast threat this coming weekend or early the following week.
Amazing times we are living in.
I will update as needed today, so check back. Make it a great Monday and take care.
