Halloween will be a trick AND a treat this year. The day began as a treat with sunshine and balmy temperatures near 70°. The trick comes this evening. A cold front has been creeping through the Midwest today. A long line of showers is stretched out ahead of this slow-moving boundary. If your little witches, ghosts, and goblins are trick-or-treating tonight, don’t forget the rain gear and watch out for puddles. We are tracking rain move into the Bluegrass and keep creeping southeastward throughout the evening. Pockets of heavy rain and rumbles of thunder will be possible.

The almost non-stop rain could lead to localized flooding. A Flood Watch will go into effect for the northern part of the Bluegrass.  Widespread rain will continue to fall tomorrow. We are tracking the potential for one to four inches of rain through Friday. Higher totals are expected northwest of Lexington; while southeastern Kentucky will be on the lower end of the range. Showers will wrap up on Friday. The weekend is looking drier with peeks of sunshine and mild highs in the 50s and 60s.
