Good Sunday to one and all. September is wrapping up on a very nice weather note, but it’s looking like more storms as October begins. The week ahead is looking warm and humid with an increase in storms. Sound familiar?
As we wrap up a record wet September, let’s review the records from the ninth month of the year:
- This is the wettest September on record with 10.42″ of rain, so far.
- This is the wettest fall month (September-November) on record.
- The 10.42″ of rain makes this the 15th wettest month ever recorded in Lexington.
- 2018 is the first month in recorded history with 2 months of 10″+ of rain in Lexington. February also featured more than 10″.
- Records in Lexington date back to 1870
Temps today are in the 70s with a mix of sun and clouds. Those clouds thicken later tonight and Monday as scattered showers and storms rumble back in. Watch how this action rolls right on into Tuesday:
Temps for the week ahead are above normal with many days in the upper 70s to low 80s. Humidity levels are also up and that’s likely bad news.
We are coming off the wettest September on record and the month ahead looks like more of the same. Hopefully, nowhere near the extent of what we just had, but October looks to be much wetter than average.
The next round of showers and storms arrives later in the week and may carry us into the weekend:
It’s at this point the tropics may have a lot to say with what happens to our weather. Some big time cold fronts make a run at us during this time:
Fall weather loves REALLY need the tropics to calm down before we can get sustained chill in here.
Have a great day and take care.
