Chris Bailey's Forecast | Tracking Michael and a major change
Historic Hurricane Michael is coming ashore along the Florida Panhandle and is bringing devastation with it. This storm will throw some tropical moisture into southeastern Kentucky tonight, meeting up with our fall cold front to produce heavy rains. Then, the chilly air settles in.
Back here in Kentucky, showers and thunderstorms are scattered about the region ahead of our front. This action will increase this evening, bringing some heavy rains our way. As the front moves into eastern Kentucky late tonight and early Thursday, it will meet up with some deeper tropical moisture and produce very heavy rains. Local high water issues are possible in southeastern Kentucky.
Rain ends from west to east Thursday as chilly air sweeps in. Temps drop into the upper 50s and low 60s for afternoon readings.
Clearing skies Thursday night will allow temps to drop into the 30s for many areas.
Friday’s highs stay in the 50s with afternoon clouds increasing. Those clouds are ahead of a fast-moving system that can spit out a few showers Friday night and Saturday morning.
Our next system arrives on Sunday and is what’s left of a Hurricane Sergio from the Pacific. This will bring very chilly showers our way Sunday into early Monday.
As Hurricane Micahel hits Florida, a major fall front blows across Kentucky.
