Well, November picked up right where October left off. We are tracking more wind AND more rain. A cold front remains draped across central Kentucky. This has created an avenue for a wave of low pressure to ride on. Widespread rain, some heavy at times, will continue this evening. We are tracking showers to become more scattered and the wind to start easing off late tonight. The system clears Friday, but it doesn’t mean we’re expecting a beautiful day. Instead, the work week will end gloomy with a few occasional showers and highs in the low to mid 50s.

Things brighten up over the weekend. After starting with clouds, sunshine returns Saturday. It will remain seasonably cool with highs in the mid 50s. It will be a mix of sun and clouds along with highs in the 60s Sunday and Monday. Our next big weather maker arrives on Election Day. We are tracking another round of showers and gusty storms. Heavy rainfall amounts will move our annual total higher on the chart for Lexington’s wettest on record. The Halloween rain pulled us into the fifth spot. November’s first brisk stretch will follow the mid-week rain.
