It may be February but it’s feeling more like spring the next few days with near record highs Wednesday and Thursday and rounds of heavy rain and strong storms heading our way. We’re all in on the chance for heavy rain. But Bluegrass into western counties will see the best chance to end up swamped with 2″ to 4″+ through Friday morning. A flood watch is in effect.

The highest threat for severe storms will stay anchored out west but we’ll need to watch for a few that could produce damaging wind gusts.

The one positive in all this active weather? Near record warmth! Highs in the upper 60s to low 70s Wednesday and Thursday will threaten record highs. Lexington’s average high in that range is typical for late April into early May. It won’t last- we’re back in the 30s and 40s this weekend as colder air rushes in.
