LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A few more showers and even a stray thunderstorm is all that Irma has left for Kentucky.
It has been a system since around August 26th. It was classified as a Tropical Storm on the 30th of August. It is September 14th and I am still talking about it. That's a long stretch!
The direct impacts of Irma in Kentucky have been minimal. A few gusty showers pressed through on Tuesday and Wednesday. It now begins to pull away from us. As that happens you will see a few showers and maybe even a thundershower. Another thing that many of us will notice... sunshine! There is a better chance we see those sunny skies this evening.
We'll no longer be tracking anything Irma related. Well... nothing in the present tense. This pattern shift will mean sunshine and average temperatures. You should be seeing highs around 80 and that's what we will find this weekend. Maybe even some slightly above normal numbers.
The next time we track anything of interest will be next week. That's when another cold front will sweep into Kentucky and bring a solid chance of showers and storms.
