Nate To Move Across Kentucky

Good Sunday to one and all. A stalled front and the remnants of Hurricane Nate are combining to produce torrential rains across many areas of Kentucky. This can cause, at least, some local flash flooding problems into early Monday.

The day starts with out stalled front meeting tropical moisture and putting down a ton of rain, leading to a flash flood threat. I must say, I’m perplexed as to why a Flash Flood Watch wasn’t issued for this event. There is ZERO harm in issuing a watch. None. Nada. Zero.

I digress.

What’s left of Hurricane Nate will then push across central and eastern Kentucky later today into very early Monday morning. It will likely do so as a Tropical Depression, with a chance this is still a Tropical Storm as it crosses the Tennessee border. Winds will be gusty, especially across the mountains of eastern Kentucky.

As the depression moves through, heavy rainfall will persist, leading to additional potential for flooding. Many areas pick up a general 1″-5″ of rain for the duration of the event.

The rain will quickly taper off on Monday, as tropical air remains. This sets the stage for another rain maker coming in Tuesday and Wednesday. That system can also produce heavy rainfall and a few strong storms.

Here are your tropical rain trackers for the day….

    Is the main rain flowing more east than expected? Not exactly a gully washer so far for Richmond and the radar seems to show more east so far. I don’t think Richmond has got much rain at all so far.

    Center does looks to have a little more east movement to it than the forecast track suggest’s,,,

    Here in our little area we are experiencing a good soaking rain. I know they’re giving heavy rains and that might come later but for now we’re getting good soaking much much needed rain. For this I am thankful!
