Our winter storm is shattering records. 17.1" of snow fell in Lexington and that's the most ever recorded during a two day snowstorm. We've had 32.1" of snow in the last 17 days.
This has been one of the longest weeks ever, but we are finally here. Unfortunately we have a cold front on the way, which should give us a good amount of rain. Most of the day will be mostly dry. An isolated shower/storm will be possible, but the main rain threat looks to increase late afternoon/evening. The farther west you are the more likelihood you see rain at kickoff this evening for high school football.
The heaviest rain will be Friday night into Saturday morning. We are looking at a good 1"-2" by the time its all said and done. Majority of us will stay around the 1" mark, but that's a pretty good soaking for our yards. I think this rain should be out of areas west of I-75 by early afternoon and east of I-75 by evening.
Once this front moves through Saturday night/Sunday morning we will feel a taste of fall on the first day of fall. A good looking day in store for Sunday as highs will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
Have a great Friday and weekend!
