Florence Set To Visit Kentucky

Good Sunday, everyone. Kentucky is getting a visit from Florence later today into Monday. This former hurricane may still be a Tropical Depression as it blows into the bluegrass state. This system will bring gusty winds and rounds of heavy rain producing showers and storms through Monday.

I literally have no changes to the thoughts I’ve been throwing your way for the past week or so. That said, let’s do a little recapping:

  • The track of our Tropical Depression/remnant low is likely along or east of Interstate 75 tonight and early Monday. It’s along and east of the track that the heaviest rains will fall.
  • Rounds of showers and storms will put it down in a hurry as they move through. That action increases from southeast to northeast through the day today.
  • A general 1″-3″ of rain will fall through Monday, with the potential for locally higher amounts. Once west of Interstate 65, the numbers are likely to drop off.
  • Local high water issues are very possible through Monday. That said, this doesn’t look anything like what we went through last weekend with Gordon.
  • Winds will be another big factor today. Local gusts may reach 40mph-45mph at times. Those high mountains in the east may even get a few higher gusts.

I have you all set to do some Tropical Depression tracking…
