The Paducah National Weather Service says the remnants of Isaac will leave a good soaking of 2 to 4 inches of rain over the next two days before it churns off to the east. Winds from 15 to 20 miles per hour will join the rain with gusts up to 30-miles an hour. They are reminding boaters on local lakes and rivers to be aware of the high winds and be cautious. Meteorologist Rick Shanklin tells KZIM KSIM the high humidity and wind may spawn some severe weather. Shanklin says there is also potential of some flash flooding as bands will bring imbedded heavy storm at times. He says the good news is that this will be a nice slow soaking rain and should help vegetation in the short term. The chance of isolated storms will persist through Monday. Cape Regional Airport is still 16-inches behind for the year.
