Heavy rain potential through the night

August 10th, 2014 is the fourth wettest day in Lexington. If trends continue, it could become 3rd wettest. As of this writing totals are floating around 5"+ for the day.

There are even more showers and storms possible as we wrap up our Sunday. Some of those will produce even more heavy rainfall. The concern for flash flooding will remain through the evening. As I have said all week, any one of these storms that develop will have the potential to produce heavy amounts of rain.

With a frontal boundary crashing in here for Monday-Tuesday, it will only heighten the threat of more thunderstorms. This could be a chance for some to see some widespread activity.

Once that front clears our area... it is smooth sailing. A fall like feel will replace the tropical airmass that has been in place over the past few days. This will make for a nice time to dry out for all of those folks that saw the heavier rounds of rain. Highs will remain in the 70s and lows could dip into the 50s again.
