Still No Rainfall Record

Good evening everybody. 1935 is one tough year as it continues to hold on to the title of wettest year on record in Lexington. 2011 is giving everything it can give to take the top spot… but it’s still a bit shy.

Lexington has picked up about .40″ of rain today. That means we are still .58″ away from vaulting into the number one spot.

Scattered showers tonight may add another tenth or two of rainfall. That will still leave us with some work to do over the remaining days of 2011. An active pattern suggests we should be able to surpass 1935 before the clock strikes 2012.

Here is regional radar to track the remaining showers…

Some thoughts on the rest of the forecast:

– Friday looks chilly with temps in the low 40s under mainly cloudy skies. There will be enough low level moisture to create a light shower or two. There could even be a festive flake by evening.

– Travel for Christmas Eve looks great right now. Temps will be between 40-45 for highs with dry conditions.

– The possibly system for Christmas Day is on life support. The latest runs of the GFS model are doing everything they can to get some moisture in here.

Have a great evening and take care.
