A large upper level low dropped into Kentuckiana yesterday and it has been sitting, churning and twirling over our area today.
I have been mesmerized by the radar and the satellites the past few days. I could watch them all day. To see this water vapor satellite image below in motion click this link.
As the spins, right on top of us, it continues to douse our region with periodic rain. But it is on and off. On and off. Spinning around us. In the past day, (since 12 am) metro Louisville has seen roughly .30'' to .60'' of rain. That is about the same amount we saw on Wednesday, but more rain than we saw yesterday (Thursday). This low will help reverse the drought conditions of last week. Catch up on that topic here.
Notice in the image below, not the entire region has seen as much rainfall as metro. Some areas have missed out completely and other parts have only seen a tenth of an inch.
Those of us that have missed out on the bulk of the rain, still have the chance to see more! And those of us that are sick of the rain, won't have to deal with it for much longer!
Let's track out this low! Tonight there will still be a few spotty showers and the low is to the SW of metro.
Scattered showers will continue tomorrow, but the low is starting to slowly shift north out of our region.
By the late afternoon and evening, the low has finally cleared our area. However, the showers are not over quite yet! They will continue sporadically through the rest of your Saturday plans. They will be hit or miss though. So just have the umbrella with you and dress warm! Temps will still only be in the upper 60s.
By Sunday, the low has danced out of here, but we can't rule out a few more isolated showers.
So when do we FINALLY dry up?? Find out by tuning into WDRB News tonight with Marc and tomorrow morning with yours truly! I'll be on air bright and early from 6-9 am! Hope to see you then! You can also find me on social media with the links below:
