Could Hurricane Irma hit Kentucky and cities like Louisville?

Kentucky is now in the forecast cone for the massive hurricane, according to The National Hurricane Center. See the September 7 evening map here:

It’s far from clear how strong Irma would still be if it reached Kentucky, though.

Keep in mind that forecasting models are just that; they’re projections. Irma remains very unpredictable. However, recent models have shown the storm increasingly imperiling Georgia and South Carolina and now possibly stretching into other states, like Kentucky.

Spaghetti models also show the storm’s possible reach. Here’s one for the evening of September 7:

The Louisville, Kentucky weather forecast for the evening of September 7 does not project any hurricane or tropical storm conditions for Louisville, but be aware that the hurricane is very unpredictable.
