The midweek rain showers left us last night, and the weather has turned off just so nice again today! We have seen the beautiful sunshine return across the state, but it has been much cooler out again. It has actually been seasonable with highs reaching the mid 40s here in Lexington. As we look ahead to the coming weekend, we're going to be trending much more wet with a few different rounds of rain heading our way. The first one will arrive Friday afternoon and keep more into southern KY. The rest of the rain will return again Saturday, but the heaviest comes in on Sunday.
At this point the forecast will be a soggy one with significant rain totals. Most models point to at least an inch and half all the way up to 3 or 4 inches by the time everything wraps up late Sunday. The ground is already very saturated from the melting snow and ice, so we will need to keep a close eye on some local high water issues. Temperatures will take off again and rise up into the mid 50s for the weekend which is why we won't have to worry about any frozen precipitation at this point. Next week's forecast looks much better as we begin to dry out again and we get the sunshine back.
