It has been extremely dry in Kentuckiana during last month and half. We had been doing fine with the yearly rainfall total, then in August the "water" was turned off! Here's where we stand right now...
- August: -1.35"
- September: -1.51"
- Year: -2.98"
This has left much of Kentuckiana tinder dry, as a matter of fact we reported on a large cornfield fire in Southern Indiana on Wednesday. Conditions there have prompted many counties to issue a burn ban. The National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) shows all of Kentuckiana in Abnormally Dry Conditions, and Western Kentucky in a Moderate Drought.
We do have a 30-40% chance for scattered showers/storms Thursday with a cool front pushing through the region HPC QPF shows about .25" of rain (locally more), however because these showers/storms will be scattered some of us are likely to see no rain at all. By Friday we're back to being sunny and dry through at least next Wednesday.
