Hey guys and girls, I realize I haven’t been updating the website lately. As a reminder, things are more active on social media so look for me at Central Kentucky Weather on Facebook, or @LburgWXandNEWS on Twitter.
Summer in Kentucky has turned out wet for many, with above average rainfall in MOST counties of central and western Kentucky. The Bluegrass counties haven’t had a Heat Advisory in effect in four years partially due to the wet pattern, and we’re watching closely to see if that streak ends soon. Regardless of advisories, it will be very hot and humid this weekend so use caution if outdoors. Flooding and heat are the two biggest weather related killers in the U.S. This is only true because people don’t take them seriously!
As we head toward August, the hottest and driest time of the year in Kentucky is almost upon us. It will be very interesting to see how the pattern turns out this year. From what I’m seeing right now, I would expect a continuation of the stormy pattern for at least a little while longer. The good news is that we’ve almost certainly avoided drought again this year at this point.
Take care, and I’ll see you on social media.
