Weekend rain clarification

5 P.M. Saturday, Oct 7, 2017

Turns out we don’t need Hurricane Nate to get some much-needed rainfall.  A weak cold front entering the lower Ohio Valley has been squeezing out some brief light showers around the Louisville area this afternoon.  So far, the rain has not been enough to ease any soil dryness.  However, from 7 P.M. until Midnight they should become more numerous.  Some spots could get as much as half an inch this evening.

Rains from Nate should reach us tomorrow morning and continue through the afternoon.  Models have shifted Nate’s path slightly west again so my earlier prediction for Nate’s rains will have to pushed up somewhat.

My latest estimates for the Louisville area:

This evening:  about .25″ to .40″  of rain (higher amounts west and north of Louisville)

Sunday:  about .35″ to .80″

NOTE:  Sunday’s rainfall totals will rapidly increase as you head southeast from Louisville.  Southeastern KY may see as much as 6″+ of rain.
