Gordon throws tropical rain our way

Good Saturday and welcome to the weekend. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms continue to rumble at us today and will continue for the next few days. This action will increase as the weekend wears on, as what’s left of Gordon throws tropical moisture our way.

Let us begin with today and roll forward.

Showers and storms will be scattered about the region, with steamy temps in between. Any storm that goes up will be able to put down a lot of rain in a short period of time. This action may end up being more widespread in the north and west than what we see in the east.

Here are your tracking toys for the day:

The showers and storms will continue to increase from west to east tonight and into Sunday. This happens the remnant low from Gordon works through the lower Ohio Valley then wraps up as it lifts to the north. That will also drag a cold front slowly across the state. That front will ignite widespread showers and storms and can cause high water issues across central and eastern Kentucky into early Monday. A few of the storms may even be strong.

Monday as a chance to be pretty cool under clouds and showers. Temps may not get out of the 60s in some areas.

Temps rebound with the threat for more showers and storms into the middle and end of next week. That’s when the focus shifts to the east coast.

Florence is going to track toward the east coast and could be a major Hurricane as it approaches the Carolinas by the middle of next week:

There’s nothing good that can come from the setup.

The models are all over the east coast hit, with some of them taking this far enough inland to influence our weather. The European Model is showing this potential:

The GFS is also a Carolina hit, but it keeps it going up the east coast then back out to sea:

Make it a great Saturday and take care.
