You know it's been exceptionally dry when Phoenix, AZ has seen more rain this month than Lexington! We have only registered a trace of rain over the last three and a half week. But there's finally a chance for that to change. A cool front will pass through the Bluegrass tomorrow. It won't be a drought quencher but it will bring spotty showers, a stray storm during the middle of the day. The front will be running out of steam by the time it reaches us Monday morning. Rainfall amounts aren't too optimistic, less than a quarter inch in most spots. We need a good soaking rain to dig us out of this rainfall deficit. That kind of pattern change isn't coming in the near-future. There's another low-end shower chance on Thursday, otherwise it will remain bone-dry through the end of September.
Tomorrow's front will usher in cooler temperatures for the first couple of days of fall. We'll reap the benefits as early as tomorrow with a high near 80°. Skies will quickly clear overnight, sending our temperatures into the mid 50s to begin the first *full* day of fall. Tuesday will definitely have a fall-like feel with highs in the upper 70s and plenty of bright sunshine. But it's not sweater weather all the time yet. The sizzling September heat will blaze back in with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s later this week and into the weekend.
