Scattered showers missed the airport

The only way we’ll remember that we had rain today is by seeing the little “T” on the daily climate report. This means that there was a “trace” amount of rainfall at the Blue Grass Airport, but not enough to be considered “measurable,” which begins at 0.01.”


One shower got close but missed the airport by only a few miles…

So close

Now, we will go down as having the 3rd longest stretch of dry weather, with 27 consecutive days. The last time we were this dry was back in 1953 when we had 30 consecutive days, which is the next milestone in the stretch.

We only have one more chance for rain this week and that’s Thursday. Another weak cold front will slide in and up the chance for scattered rain showers. Again, unless one of these showers lines up over the Blue Grass Airport, then we will remain dry. *IF* we stay dry Thursday, we will give the all-time record dry stretch a run for its money. That record is 37 days set back in August and September 1908.
