Monday, May 14, 2012: Necessary Rain is Just What the Doc Ordered... Gloomy Today, But Trending Brighter, Warmer This Week

Good Monday morning, folks!  I hope you had a spectacular Mother's Day with the important moms in your lives, and that the rain didn't dampen your plans too much.

Coming into the weekend, we were running a couple of inches below normal for annual precipitation, and this certainly helped.  Our deficit since the beginning of the year was generally cut in half by this storm system.  Here are the totals for the past 48 hours.

-

On a regional level, the I-65 corridor received more rainfall than we did.  You'll notice Louisville, Bowling Green and Nashville all posted more than central and eastern Kentucky.

As upper-level low pressure continues to drift east across the Ohio Valley, a few additional showers and spotty thunderstorms will remain in the forecast for the afternoon, primarily to the east of I-75.  Here's the latest WRF forecast for additional rain, from mid-morning through this evening.

Things will dramatically improve as we move through the week.  The late-week forecast is especially nice, with a ridge of high pressure building into the Bluegrass, with more sunshine than clouds and highs in the middle 70s on Thursday and near 80 on Friday.

Be careful on those wet roads today.  Things are improving for us, and after all, the plants needed the rain.
