Good Friday everyone. Thursday turned out to be another severe weather day across our region as clusters of storms rolled through the state. Damaging winds, hail, torrential rains and lightning were common with these boomers.
The one good thing about the recent storms is the amount of rain we’ve been seeing. Lexington has picked up more than six inches of rain this month and this now puts us ahead of normal for the summer. Yes, you heard me right. Lexington is experiencing above normal rainfall for the summer. The drought is taking a beating and parts of central Kentucky may soon join the east in being taken out of official drought status.
Can we do the severe thing all over again today? It’s a possibility… especially in the east. A cold front is in the process of working through the state today and this will aid in the development of showers and storms. Damaging winds and hail will again be the main players with the strongest storms. Heavy rains will again become an issue.
Here’s a look at your Friday tracking toys:
I will have updates as needed. Have a great Friday and take care.
