Forecasters say it’s unlikely the Louisville area will see any precipitation from the remnants of Hurricane Gustav or other storm systems approaching the U.S.

Don Kirkpatrick with the National Weather Service in Louisville says what’s left of Gustav is moving very slowly through Louisiana and Texas.

“We could see a little bit of moisture from Gustav later this week, maybe Friday or Saturday but if we get anything from that it will be just a very little bit of moisture and not much chance for showers or some immediate rainfall,” says Kirkpatrick.

Kirkpatrick says Tropical Storm Hanna will take a more easterly route, and precipitation from that system will likely stay well to the east of the Louisville area.
