Happy first day of meteorological spring! March madness is here, but let’s hope it’s not madness in terms of the weather! Luckily, we're starting the month on a dry note, which is pretty well a 180 degree turn from where we were last month.
Looking back at February, Kentucky couldn’t seem to get a break from the exceptional rainfall. Just this past week, Kentucky averaged 2.24 inches behind multiple rounds of widespread activity and even some embedded storms. Most fell Monday night into Tuesday and again Wednesday night into Thursday. This was a statewide soaker with most ending up over 1.5 inches. The highest totals, in excess of 3 inches, were found across South Central and Southeastern Kentucky (map below).
