Adding to Already Record Precipitation

Posted at 8:22 AM, Dec 15, 2018

Lexington set a record for wettest year on the books at the beginning on the month. Rain yesterday and again today will only pad already historic numbers.

Year-to-date precipitation totals through December 14th.

Records for annual total precipitation could fall in Frankfort and Jackson this weekend. Both locations are currently the second wettest. Year-to-date precipitation amounts around the Bluegrass are 20 or more inches above-normal.

We are tracking widespread rain to linger through lunchtime today. During the afternoon activity will become more scattered. The coverage of rain will back off as center of low pressure tracks across Tennessee. Showers will diminish after midnight for the Bluegrass.

Friday the heaviest rain was across the southern half of Kentucky. That will balance out today. Closer to an inch of rain is expected near the Ohio River. Meanwhile, the Bluegrass can expect an additional half to one inch of rain today. Totals drop off across southern Kentucky.
