Remnants of Isaac Heading for Region
The former Hurricane Isaac is due to reach the region sometime tomorrow afternoon, much weaker than when it hit Louisiana yesterday. National Weather Service forecaster David Humphrey says the storm will probably skirt the outside of the Four Rivers Region.
“The track still looks like it’s gonna come up out of Louisiana, go through Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana. That’ll take the very heaviest rain, along that track”
Humphrey says there’s still a lot of opportunity in the area for high winds and moderate rain. He says to expect winds of about 20 miles per hours with gusts up to 30 possible. Humphrey says the storm will drop 2 to 4 inches in Western Kentucky as it passes.
