Good Friday to one and all. Wow — what a Fourth of July! Heavy rain and storms rolled across the region, dumping flooding rains on some areas. Additional rain and storms will push through today and into the weekend.
This Fourth of July in Lexington goes down as one of the wettest and coolest on record. The high of 71 degrees is the second-lowest high temperature ever recorded for the day. Last year was the hottest Fourth on record at 99 degrees. The official rain numbers from Blue Grass Airport show 1.70 inches of rain. That’s just shy of the record rainfall for the day, set in 1935. Other parts of Lexington recorded 2 to 2.5 inches of rain.
As I mentioned, additional rounds of showers and storms will roll through today and Saturday. With saturated ground, it won’t take much rain to produce some high water. A flash flood watch continues.
The flow will be continue to be from south to north, and you can follow all the action on our radars:
Have a great day and take care.
