Our TSRC analysis software is programmed for Tropical Storm activity in the Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, but today one of our alert monitors sounded when it detected exceptionally heavy rains throughout most of Kentucky. Persons from central and eastern Kentucky to eastern Ohio, most of Pennsylvania, northwestern Virginia and western New York State should be aware of rapidly changing conditions and flash flooding. Our TSRC office usually does not track inland storms, but due to the excessive moisture available to this series of storms, we are just mentioning this in the forum here since many of our members may be affected by this situation.
