Good Friday to one and all. The rain arrived on cue Thursday with widespread showers across the south and east and some tropical thunderstorms in other areas. The rain kicks into high gear on this Friday the 13th as a weak area of low pressure lifts northward across the eastern half of the state. Our weekend will then bring more in the way of scattered boomers.
The steady rain of today will be more common across central and eastern Kentucky and much more scattered in the west. Locally heavy rainfall will be likely today and there may be a corridor that produces enough for some local high water issues. Where will this set up? Radar will eventually tell all.
A tropical air mass will remain in place through the weekend and this will help spawn more showers and storms. These will be common during the afternoon and evening hours and can cause some problems of their own. That action is likely to carry us into next week.
The latest 5 day Rain Forecast from the HPC continues to advertise some high totals…
That’s a thing of beauty! It’s time for mother nature to deliver the goods and help our brown grass turn blue… or green. (Apologies to Crystal Gayle ) PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT EVERY AREA WILL NOT GET A TON OF RAIN EACH DAY. It’s a total over a several day period.
I will have updates as needed here and via twitter. Follow me @kentuckyweather .
Have a great day and take care.
