Tracking the threats from Harvey

Good Thursday to one and all. Harvey is on the way to Kentucky and will cause problems over the next few days. From the threat of flooding to the potential for an isolated tornado, thing are about to take a turn for the worse.

The center of Harvey will pass right on top of Kentucky from Thursday night through Friday night. This will bring the heaviest rain and greatest flood threat for areas along and north/west of the low. Here’s the updated rainfall forecast:

Gusty winds will also be a significant issue, with some gusts potentially reaching 40mph +:

I’m also watching areas south and southeast of the center of circulation for the potential for isolated tornadoes. The greatest threat is probably south of Kentucky, but here’s the area to keep an eye on:

Temperatures behind the low drop into the 50s  Friday afternoon and evening. Leftover showers and clouds will probably keep highs in the 50s Saturday for areas of Central and Eastern Kentucky.

I have the blog set for all your Harvey tracking needs:
