Heavy rain and gusty winds moving in

Good Friday, everyone. We continue to tracking a major storm system into the bluegrass state for the weekend. This will bring heavy rain and high winds beginning tonight and running through Saturday night.

Now that we are closer to the weekend, things are coming into better focus in terms of timing and placement. Instead of writing a lot, here are the maps I’ve made to break it all down…

After the initial surge of rain, much of the action takes a break across the eastern half of the state, allowing for some decent weather for a while:

Showers and thunderstorms will be continuing across western Kentucky, then that action works back into central and eastern Kentucky Saturday evening into the wee hours of Sunday:

A general 1″-3″ of rain still look good for much of central and western Kentucky, with lighter amounts across the east.

Winds are going to be a big player, especially Saturday night. Some gusts of 50mph or greater will be possible. The NAM and Euro have some big time gusts…

Sunday looks like a breezy day with a seasonal brand of air in town as we fight some low clouds.

The setup early next week through Halloween continues to be another pain as there is zero model agreement. The GFS is still way to progressive with the Euro holding too much energy back in the southwest. The Canadian is a compromise of the two:

Here are your trackers to follow the action in from the southwest:

Have a great day and take care.
