Rounds of heavy rain roll through

Good Saturday, everyone. We continue to track a big low pressure system into the region today. This is bringing rounds of heavy rain and some thunderstorms, but a few breaks in the action will show up from time to time.

At this point, the forecast remains pretty much in tact. Here’s a quick synopsis:

  • Our day starts with showers and storms for many, with a slow decrease in the south and southeast.
  • A window of dry weather is likely across eastern Kentucky this afternoon into the early evening. That may allow temps to surge into the 70s.
  • Central Kentucky will be right on the afternoon buffer zone between the dry east and stormy west. A few showers and storms will be noted in this area.
  • Showers and storms increase from west to east this evening and then should end by Sunday morning.

What’s left of Tropical Storm Olga continues to rapidly push into our region later today:

Along and east of the track of that remnant low, some big time winds can show up. The Hi Res NAM is spitting out 60mph gusts in the west:

Gusts across central and eastern Kentucky may be in the 40 to 50mph range as the evening line of thunderstorms works to the east.

Clouds linger into Sunday as a seasonally chilly wind blows.

The next system rolls in here by Wednesday and Halloween Thursday. This one is likely another big rain and wind maker before cold air crashes in behind the departing storm. The GFS continues to come around to this idea:

Here are the trackers your need to follow today’s rain and breaks:

Make it a great Saturday and take care.
