Good Tuesday, everyone. Historic Hurricane Irma continues to weaken into a tropical depression, but it’s still packing a rainy punch. Showers continue to increase across the bluegrass state, with gusty showers and storms hanging around for a few more days.
Today’s heaviest rainfall comes early on, with some local 1″ amounts possible by evening. Winds will also be gusty and could reach 30mph at times this morning, especially in the south.
By the afternoon, we will likely see some breaks in the clouds, but a few showers and storms will continue. This is NOT going to be an all day rain event.
The actual remnant low from Irma will likely work east into Kentucky late Wednesday into Wednesday night. You can actually pick this up very well by looking just a littler upstairs…
That will spawn some pretty good rainers during this time and these will be slow-movers. Temps may struggle to get much past the 60 degree mark, making for a very nasty day.
Scattered showers and storms will then continue into Thursday, with some locally heavy downpours.
Our weekend turns warmer as temps finally push back toward the 80 degree mark. This pattern is trying to skew a little warmer over the next week and change.
We are still going to have to keep a close eye on Jose out in the Atlantic. This will do a loop and could make a run at the east coast this weekend or early next week. The current trend on the models is to keep turn this back out to sea…
Still plenty of time to watch Jose and see what happens.
Have a great Tuesday and take care.
