Watching another high water threat

Good Wednesday to one and all. We have another heavy rain event unfolding on this final day of February, and this will continue into day one of March. Once again, we are on guard for high water issues.

As we close out the month, we only need .05″ of rain for this to be the wettest February on record for Lexington. That will be easy to come by as showers and storms move in early today. This comes from another potent system working into the Ohio Valley for Wednesday and Thursday. This puts the bluegrass state back into a zone of heavy rain:

In addition to the heavy rain threat, winds are going to become a big player on Thursday. That’s when our low pressure deepens and works to our northeast, potentially giving us gusts of 40mph or greater:

Given the wet ground, those winds could cause easily uproot a few trees.

As is usually the case, I have the blog all set for your one stop weather tracking shop:

Make it a great Wednesday and take care.
