Irma brings rain to the Bluegrass State

Good Monday to one and all. Hurricane Irma is slowly weakening after causing devastation across Florida. What’s left of this storm will throw rain all the way into Kentucky by later Monday evening.

Our once-category 5 hurricane is slowly weakening as it works to the north and northwest today. This system will still cause wind damage all the way through Georgia, Alabama and into Tennessee.

Here’s the latest on Irma:

The first rain will roll into the region from southeast to northwest in the evening. This action will then kick it up a notch overnight into Tuesday, with some local amounts of 1 inch or more possible.

Here are your local trackers to follow the tropical rains:

The remnants of Irma will work into Kentucky by late Wednesday and Thursday. The models are tracking that well:

We will need to watch that system to see whether it produces some slow-moving showers and storms that can cause local high-water problems. The rains will be tropical in nature, so it’s possible.

Scattered rain could take us all the way into Friday.

Make it a great day and take care.
