Good Wednesday, gang. The forecast for the next few days is going to seem awfully familiar: highs in the 70s, with scattered showers and thunderstorms. This will add to our already impressive spring rainfall totals.
Lexington is running more than 4 inches above normal for the year. That’s a far cry from the same time last year, when we were more than 2 inches below normal. That means we are about 6 inches wetter than we were at the same time last year.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will return to the region today. These will put down additional heavy rain in some areas. I can’t rule out small hail.
Let’s track it:
Additional showers and thunderstorms will be possible Thursday, as highs head toward the 80-degree mark.
Friday can feature more of a widespread thunderstorm and should give us the best chance at seeing strong or severe storms. That’s something to keep in mind over the next few days.
The GFS is pretty aggressive on rainfall through this weekend:
Much colder air will come in behind the rain and storms and will arrive by Sunday. Temps will drop into the 50s for highs with partly sunny skies. That may set us up for some frost and lows in the 30s by Monday morning.
Have a great Wednesday and take care.
