Not the Prettiest of Mother’s Days

Posted at 4:35 PM, May 11, 2019

Our time is running out. We’ve been able to hold of the rain for most of the day, but now the next round is assembling and will move in tonight. Sadly Mother’s Day won’t be the prettiest. The day will begin and end with showers. Some of the heaviest and most sustained rain will fall to the southeast of Lexington. Southeastern Kentucky could pick up as much as two inches of rain Sunday. For the Bluegrass rainfall amounts will be between a half inch and one inch. Activity will begin tapering off after dinner. Even outside of the rain, the day will be gray, overcast, and cool with highs in the lower 60s.

Stray showers may linger into Monday. The start of the work week will be headlined by drier conditions and a definite spring chill. Highs will struggle to climb past the lower 60s Monday, and Tuesday morning will have a little nip in the air with temperatures near 40°, even some upper 30s. The “chill” won’t hang around for long. By next weekend we’ll be flipping the switch to full on summer.
