Tracking tropical rains across the region

Good Sunday, folks. The remnants of Gordon continue to bring rounds of showers and thunderstorms to our part of the world. Low pressure, formerly known as Gordon, is combining with a cold front to produce some big time rain totals in parts of Kentucky, leading to high water issues.

The showers and storms today come at us in waves. Each wave will have torrential rains and could even produce local high wind gusts. The main issue comes from the heavy rains, so keep a close eye on area creeks and streams. Here are your tracking tools for the day:

Our slow-moving front continues to press across eastern Kentucky into Monday, leading to additional showers and a few storms. Heavy rains may continue to fall in the southeast, especially early in the day. High temps across the state will generally range from the upper 60s to low 70s.

Tuesday and Wednesday will see the chance for scattered showers and storms around as temps head back to seasonal levels. We may get a little above normal again by the second half of the week as Hurricane Florence nears the east coast.

This storm will be a monster and may very well head into the Carolinas during this time. Here’s the latest specifics and track from the National Hurricane Center:

The Canadian Model brings the remnant low right into our region:

Have a great day and take care.
