The amount of rain brought on by the remnants of Hurricane Isaac has varied greatly across Western Kentucky.
Only four hundredths of an inch of rain was recorded yesterday at the “mesonet” site north of Hopkinsville. Fourty-five hundredths of an inch fell at the Trigg County site yesterday and much of Todd County also got significant rainfall yesterday, though the new weather site there isn’t online yet.
Christian and surrounding counties may not make it to the predicted one and a half inches of rainfall that was prognosticated from Isaac, as the system has taken a track which could keep the southern Pennyrile a little more on the dry side. That doesn’t mean no rain, however, as precipitation is still likely today and possible tomorrow.
A Tornado Watch came and went with little fanfare in the Pennyrile last night after funnel clouds and a couple of tornadoes were spotted in Masaac County, Illinois and in Paducah. Only some tree damage was reported there.
