Soggy Start To Week Brings Much-Needed Rain

Monday, June 11, 2012: Much-Needed Rain Arrives After Dry Start To June

Good Monday morning, folks!  I hope you enjoyed the past weekend. 

The first 10 days of June have been relatively dry.  In Lexington, we’ve been running a -1.23" rainfall shortage so far this month, but today’s rain is certainly helping.  Here’s a look at the radar picture at midmorning.

We’re off to a good start in Lexington and around the Bluegrass Region.  Many areas have had between 1/3rd and 1/2 of an inch so far, since midnight.  Here are the rainfall totals among Kentucky Mesonet sites – SO FAR – through 9:30 AM Eastern.

Much of eastern Kentucky has yet to see rain, but as the system pushes east, showers and eventually some thunderstorms will impact the eastern part of Kentucky later today, tonight and on Tuesday.  Eventually, 0.50" to 0.75" of rain is anticipated for much of the area.

A cold front will cross the area on Tuesday, and high pressure will return for Wednesday.  The middle of the week will be beautiful with partly sunny skies and highs in the upper 70s.
