Florence Moves In Sunday

Good evening, gang. Florence continues to move very slowly and it’s also slowly weakening as it moves across South Carolina. This will move into Kentucky late Sunday and early Monday as a Tropical Depression. This is the third tropical system of the season to move into our region.

Here’s the latest from the NHC on Florence…

That depression should roll right on top of central and eastern Kentucky over the next 48 hours. Watch the south to north movement, before it turns northeast and then east across Ohio…

Some quick headlines:

  • Rounds of showers and storms will be common Sunday through Monday night.
  • A general 1″-3″ of rain is possible for much of central and eastern Kentucky. Thunderstorms are capable of dropping a little more.
  • Local high water issues are very possible during this time.
  • Wind gusts Sunday into Sunday night can reach 40-45mph at times. Gusts may still hit 30mph behind the departing low on Monday.

Scattered storms are going up this afternoon and evening. Here are your tracking tools to follow along…

I’m actually working on WKYT-TV tonight, so tune in. Make it a good one and take care.

    Florence is getting close to Harlan. It is breezy and mostly cloudy now here, still humid but feels better with the winds. I could see a 4 inch rainfall possible in far SE KY, but it so dry down here, I highly doubt much if any issues. Those that could see issues would be Central and NE KY since you all h ad Gordon lkast week and overall much wetter on the year than down here!

    The track of the leftovers of Florence could be key for Kentucky. Heaviest rain will be to the right of the Low’s track, quickly diminishing totals farther west. Perhaps 1-2″ in general and some localized terrain-enhancing totals.
