Tracking Hurricane Florence

Good evening, gang. Hurricane Florence continues to slowly approach the North Carolina coast and will absolutely pound North Carolina and South Carolina over the next few days. Once inland, it will finally begin to pick up speed by Saturday and will roll our way. This may very well still be a tropical depression as it crosses the border into the bluegrass state.

Here is your interactive radar, complete with live storm tracker feeds from the areas getting hit. Just zoom in and track everything this storm has to offer up…

The hurricane models continue to be locked in on taking the remnants of this system into Kentucky.

The GFS Ensembles are also locked on the track on us…

The GFS continues to take the center of circulation right on top of central Kentucky. Check out how Florence moves across Florence, Ky…

Here’s the overall journey of Florence…

Here’s how things look to play out:

  • Scattered storms go up during the afternoon hours over the next few days. Tropical downpours are possible.
  • The remnant low from Florence moves on top of us Sunday through early Monday. That will bring heavy rain into the region, along with gusty winds.
  • A general 1″-3″ of rain is likely across the eastern half of the state, with locally higher amounts. High water issues are possible.
  • Winds may gust to 40mph at times Sunday afternoon into Sunday night across the central and east.

I will have the very latest forecast on WKYT-TV starting at 11pm and have another KWC update for you later tonight.

Isolated storms are going up through the evening, I close things out with regional radar for your tracking needs…

Make it a good one and take care.

    Thanks Chris. I really feel for those folks getting ready to feel the wrath of Florence. I have family in the state, and some good friends too. Praying for them and all who are being affected, and who will be affected by this thing. I’ll be keeping an eye on it for sure. Thanks again for the update.
