Tracking Ida’s expected impact in Kentucky


As we get into the work week, all eyes are on Hurricane Ida.

As of Sunday morning, Ida is a category four major hurricane with winds of 150 mph, with gusts up to category five strength.

The storm does look to weaken as it moves over land, but the cone does have Kentucky included.

Late Monday into Wednesday we will see some really heavy rainfall in the state. Flooding will be likely with this system as a stalled front will add more moisture into the mix.

The NHC does have Ida as a tropical depression as it moves through Kentucky and winds could gust up to 30+ mph. Some of us could see 2-5 inches into the start of the week.

Make sure you stay weather prepared; the time to act is now.

A Weather Warn Day will be in place tomorrow through Wednesday. Temperatures will drop into the low 70s and lows into the 50s. After Thursday, things will calm down and the sunshine should return. Temps will also creep back to the 80s. The weekend looks to be calm.
