Good Wednesday everyone and thanks for checking in with the blog. We have made huge gains in the rain department over the past week and we’re going to take it a step further over the next few days. Showers and thunderstorms will become common for the rest of the week and this will continue to help us dent the drought.
Parts of the region have done more than just dent the drought. The new Palmer Drought Index now has the eastern part of the state back into the normal camp…
There’s the chance the rainfall of the next few days takes central Kentucky back into the normal category. Many areas should pick up 1″-2″ of rain with locally higher amounts. This will be in response to a slow moving cold front that swings in late today and then hangs around through Friday.
Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will be common. Gusty winds and torrential rains will be common in the boomers. The tropical air mass means some local flash flooding will be possible for any areas getting in on repeat action.
Let’s get to tracking what fires up today:
Rainfall Since Midnight
Have a great Wednesday and take care.
