Tracking the weekend Florence impact

Good Friday, everyone. Hurricane Florence continues to pound much of North Carolina and South Carolina. This storm is slowly-moving through this area, en route toward a late weekend date with the bluegrass state.

The hurricane models continue to be locked in on taking the remnants of this system into Kentucky:

The GFS Ensembles are also locked on the track on us:

The GFS continues to take the center of circulation right on top of central Kentucky. Check out how Florence moves across Florence, Ky:

Here’s the overall journey of Florence:

Here’s how things look to play out:

  • Scattered storms go up during the afternoon hours over the next few days. Tropical downpours are possible.
  • The remnant low from Florence moves on top of us Sunday through early Monday. That will bring heavy rain into the region, along with gusty winds.
  • A general 1″-3″ of rain is likely across the eastern half of the state, with locally higher amounts. High water issues are possible.
  • Winds may gust to 40mph at times Sunday afternoon into Sunday night across the central and east.

I leave you with your tracking tools for the day:

Have a great day and take care.
