Completely Dry Days are Numbered

Posted: Updated:

We have run the entire length of an 8-Day Forecast without a drop of rain. The last time it rained in Lexington was November 18th when we picked up 0.45 inches. We are tracking an end to this completely dry stretch over the coming days as a cold front pushes through Kentucky on Thursday. Scattered light rain showers will be possible, especially during the afternoon and evening. It won't be a washout, and rainfall totals may only amount to a few hundredths of an inch.

Rain has come it spurts this fall. This month has been no exception. Prior to this recent dry spell, Lexington held a narrow rainfall surplus for the month. Since then we have fallen into the red. However, this hasn't hurt our standing with the drought monitor. And we are in a much better position than where we were at this time last year.

Several healthy post-tropical systems have helped add to Lexington's seasonal and annual rainfall amounts. For the fall, September 1st until now, we are currently running a surplus of two and three-quarter inches. So far this year we have picked up 46.74 inches of rain. That is more rain than we saw in all of 2016. So despite the recent dry days we are a long ways away from slipping into a drought.
