Tracking Florence This Weekend

Posted at 6:29 AM, Sep 14, 2018

As Hurricane Florence inundates the Carolinas, high pressure is driving the weather in the Commonwealth early this weekend as well as controlling the eventual track of that storm. We’re in for a partly sunny and warm Friday & Saturday with highs well into the mid 80s. Watch for isolated pm showers each afternoon.

As high pressure slowly relents the remnants of Florence will turn north & track into the Appalachians. Expect the remnant low to pass over eastern Kentucky Monday. This means our shower & storm chance will ramp up Sunday night- max out Monday and fade Tuesday. Scattered showers, storms, gusty wind & locally heavy rain will be possible (mainly over eastern counties) but it will not be a repeat of the deluge we were hit with last weekend from the remnants of Gordon.
