Could a tropical storm end its life over Kentucky?
Cindy is the third tropical storm of 2017. What makes this one special? It could burn out over Kentucky, much like Bill did in June 2015. That’s rare, said WKYT chief meteorologist Chris Bailey. That means lots of rain is possible. Lots of rain also means the potential for flooding.
Cindy could reach the coast Tuesday. Rain accumulations of 6 to 9 inches are expected in parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and the Florida Panhandle, according to the hurricane center advisory.
Bailey said Cindy could still be a tropical depression when it reaches Kentucky by Saturday.
