Fay To Have Little Or No Effect On Kentucky

Sometimes when a hurricane or tropical storm makes landfall in the U.S., remnants of the storm travel several hundred miles inland. But Kentucky forecasters say that likely won’t be the case with Tropical Storm Fay.Meteorologist Joe Ammerman with the National Weather Service in Louisville says Fay isn’t expected to have even a small impact on Kentucky."Right now the forecast for Fay is to head up through the Florida peninsula and then be basically on the east coast just north of Savannah by eight-am, Thursday," says Ammerman. "That track would certainly keep any precipitation away from Kentucky."Ammerman says some predictions have Fay heading back into the Atlantic and then looping around and making a rare second landfall near the Gulf Coast states by the weekend.
