We need rainfall and luckily, we're going to get it. Kentucky's seen off and on showers today, but totals have been lackluster with most solidly below a tenth of an inch. The real show is starting now across Western KY and will continue tonight and into tomorrow as an area of low pressure works through the area, producing widespread moderate showers. Ultimately, I've been looking at the latest model runs this evening and there's pretty solid agreement for statewide totals between 0.75 to 1.5 inches. This is shown well in the 48-hour rainfall forecast from the Weather Prediction Center, below. Luckily, any severe weather will stay well to our south/southwest with only a few rumbles of thunder in our neck of the woods.
On a side note, as of 5 PM, showers are beginning to encroach upon Western KY on the new "Weather Alert" app. I'm pleased to share that we're inching closer to its release, and I'm hopeful it won't be too much longer! Additionally, you'll have the ability to personalize your radar, incorporating layers such as NWS watches/warnings and lightning.
Moving back to the forecast, dry conditions then return for at least a couple days, including the Thanksgiving holiday, which will also see highs in the low to mid 50s. There are some hints for light showers over the second half of the week, but forecast confidence isn't all that high right now. Either way, most of the period looks to run dry. Outlooks (below) then favor drier and seasonably cool conditions to end the month. Normal highs for the end of November run in the upper 40s to low 50s.
