Our Storm Threat Continues

Good Sunday to one and all. To say July is off to a wet start would be an understatement. It has rained every day of the month, so far, and we have been dealing with flooding problems for the past 3 days. This stormy pattern doesn’t show many signs of letting up.

The rain numbers have been impressive with much of the area picking up 4″-7″ since early on the 4th of July. Lexington has had over an inch of rain during the past three days and that hasn’t happened since February, 1989.

Additional rounds of showers and storms today will target the eastern half of the state with the potential for flash flooding. Your radars will help you through the day:

EuroThat’s the European Model and it has ugly written all over it. This is one heck of an amazing pattern we’re in and it’s one likely to give us on the the wettest summers on record.

Have a great Sunday and take care.
