Mild and breezy weather will continue today under cloudy skies. Scattered rain showers will arrive from western Kentucky during the afternoon, and the rain will become more widespread late this evening and overnight tonight. Some of the showers may produce a little bit of thunder and lightning overnight, as a cold front slides across the area. Rainfall amounts may top 1" in some places, which will take Lexington closer to the annual precipitation record. 1.32" separates Lexington from the all time record (1935, 65.76"). Showers will taper off on Wednesday, but a new disturbance will bring another round of widespread rain on Thursday. The Christmas Weekend forecast remains a very challenging one, with little agreement among the computer models. It is likely that we'll have at least a few hours of light rain or light snow during Christmas Eve or Christmas Day with highs in the lower to middle 40s. You can read more on the weather blog.
