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.
