Another record breaking rainfall

Good Sunday, everyone. Heavy rain producing showers and thunderstorms continue to push across central and eastern Kentucky. Some of the storms will contain high winds that can cause some minor wind damage.

Today marks the second day in a row of record breaking rainfall in Lexington. So far, we’ve picked up 1.09″ and that breaks the old daily record of 1.07″ from 1910. This is the first time we’ve had back to back record rainfall days in October since 1959.

Thunderstorms will continue to rumble for areas east of Interstate 75 into the evening. Some of these may be strong or severe.

Showers, wind and colder air will continue for the rest of central Kentucky as the front passes through. Temps will drop into the upper 50s during the early evening and hit the 40s overnight. Highs tomorrow ill struggle to get to 60.
