Hard Times

Posted: Updated:

"Hard Freeze" Times that is...

First and foremost, I want to offer a special "Thank You" to all of our Veterans! Your service is greatly appreciated.

We've successfully accomplished our first hard freeze of the season. A hard freeze is defined (by the National Weather Service) as a temperature of 28 degrees or below. Most plants/crops have already been damaged or killed due to previous freezes, but if not, this puts the kibosh on that.

If you want to break down the stats of the hard freeze averages for Lexington, they are as follows.

Average First Hard Freeze: November 5th

Record Earliest Hard Freeze:  October 3rd (1974)

Record Latest Hard Freeze: December 4th (1899)

So, within a two month period, early November seems to be the median time frame for a hard freeze. Based on the fact that we accomplished ours, this year, only 5 days after the average first means we're pretty much on schedule.

Now, on to some forecast talk...

We get a quick turn around in afternoon temperatures. Don't let this shade you into thinking it's going to be "warm" today. We will be about 10 degrees warmer this afternoon, but most of the day will be spent in the 40s. The next chance for rain showers arrives tomorrow evening. Clouds will litter the sky through the day Sunday, but the rain gets here around dinner time. For the most part, showers will brush the counties north of I-64, but a few scattered pops could roll over southern counties as well. Don't expect much rain from this system. A few tenths of an inch will likely be the ending amount statewide.

Stay warm, stay dry, and as always stay weather-wise!
