Wettest Year on Record in Sight

Posted at 3:26 PM, Nov 30, 2018

We’re on record watch this weekend! Lexington needs less than 1/2″ to claim the title of the wettest year on record.

After catching a break throughout the day, we are tracking widespread showers with embedded thundershowers and heavy rain to develop overnight. Showers and gusty thundershowers will be likely Saturday. An additional 1″ to 1.5″ of rain expected. So the question isn’t if, but when will we break the record.

December won’t just be off to a wet start, it will also be unseasonably warm. Gusty southerly winds will push highs into the mid low to mid 60s tomorrow and Sunday. 30 to 40 mph gusts will be possible Saturday, so hold onto your hat, and your Christmas inflatable. Speaking of holiday decorations, if you didn’t take advantage of the warm and dry weather last weekend don’t fret. We are tracking a decent end to this weekend with some sunshine, breezy, and warm conditions. The cold holds off until the start of the work week.
