The rain from Delta is here. Even though Delta is no longer a tropical storm, but now a post-tropical cyclone, it is still bringing plenty of rain into Kentucky. Most of southern KY will take the brunt of the action as the rain has been very light in and around the Lexington area. So far, the highest rain total reading is in Jackson, KY at half an inch. Lexington Blue Grass Airport has only picked up a trace. We have more rain to come especially late this evening and overnight. Totals by the end of the weekend will be between 0.25" and 2.00", but local spots could even reach 3.00" mainly in the south. We are in need of the rain and the ground will absorb most, but still watch for high-running creeks or streams.
The rain should be wrapping up pretty quickly with only a few leftover showers into Sunday afternoon/evening. Clouds won't clear though until Monday and even then, we have another chance to see a couple of showers with the passage of a cold front. A couple of cold fronts are ahead next week, but the stronger of the two won't arrive until Thursday. Until then, enjoy temperatures in the 70s. Friday's high temperature will drop back into the upper 50s.
