Multiple Rounds of Showers and Storms Expected this Week

Our weather will be unsettled this week as Tropical Storm Fred makes landfall around the Florida Panhandle. Tropical rain will move through Kentucky out ahead of Fred before the remnants move through the state by mid-week. Here’s a look at the predicted rainfall amounts for the week from the Weather Prediction Center (WPC).

Much of the southern and south eastern part of the state are in that 2 inch range with locally higher amounts possible in especially low lying areas. Talking about Tropical Storm Fred, here’s the latest track from the National Hurricane Center…

Fred is expected to make landfall as a Tropical Storm sometime in the early morning hours on Tuesday. You can see the forecast cone wants to bring what will then be Tropical Depression Fred through east central Tennessee and into the mountains of eastern Kentucky. This forecast could shift, but it does appear the greatest threat for flooding rainfall is in that eastern portion of Kentucky. Latest GFS tends to agree with that as well…

We are not talking about all day rains either, but rain that does move over an area could be heavy at times. Some areas could have minor flooding issues. We will keep a watch on everything and make updates as necessary.
