Our weekend has been a little more gray and gloomy than what we like, but at least the storms have stayed on the lower side of strong. The worst thing we've had to deal with in our state is mainly flash flooding and most of that has been in western/central KY. Over the past 24 hours, parts of western KY have picked up 3-5 inches of rain! Here in the Lexington area, we've only seen a few tenths of an inch. Southern KY has not seen a terrible amount either, but don't let your guard down! The potential to see more rain over the next 24 hours is high. More showers and a few thunderstorms are expected this evening, overnight and for the first couple of days this coming work week. The Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for southern KY until 11 AM Monday. Be aware that torrential rain (especially in thunderstorms) can result in quick flooding.
Temperatures haven't been too bad this weekend...both days have been in the 70s, but boy-has it felt tropical. The muggies are here for a few more days still yet and dew points will rest in the low 70s through Thursday. The weather pattern will remain a bit active as another low pressure will move in from the west by Tuesday keeping the chances for rain and thunderstorms moderate. It looks like we start to calm down though by late weekend as we inch closer to Independence Day.
