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.
