Good Sunday to one and all. We are dealing with additional rounds of showers and storms rumbling through the region and this setup is putting down heavy rains. This is ahead of a cold front that ushers in better air for the next few days. At the same time, we are keeping a close eye on Sally in the Gulf of Mexico.
Let’s start things out with the storms of today. Rounds of showers and storms continue across central and eastern Kentucky. The local high water threat is something for us to keep an eye on, especially early today. Here are your storm tracking radars:
Rains taper off from northwest to southeast late today into early Monday as some awesome air works in here. Highs are generally in the 70s Sunday and Monday and lows may dip into the high 40s by Tuesday morning. From there, things depend on our developing system in the Gulf of Mexico. You can see this system coming off the coast of Florida:
The National Hurricane Center now takes Sally to hurricane strength before bringing it onshore near or just east of New Orleans:
I think this has a chancer to become a major hurricane . That angle can cause some pretty big issues, especially along the Mississippi coast and eastern parts of Louisiana.
This system is going to throw some, at least, offshoot tropical moisture our way by Wednesday and Thursday. That would interact with a cold front and I’ve seen those setups put down some overachiever rains.
The EURO shows direct heavy rains from this making into Kentucky and merging with a DEEP fall trough:
That could be a Pot Of Chili Alert if things play out like the Euro thinks.
