Rain Continues Today and Tomorrow

Showers diminished this afternoon, but the next round is on the way. Activity will ramp up overnight and last into the day tomorrow. Saying that, accumulations are expected to be much less than what we saw today. Most should stay under a third of an inch. Otherwise, dry conditions return for the second half of the weekend and into Monday with mostly sunny skies in place.

Looking farther out, outlooks paint a warmer and wetter pattern for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

NOVEMBER 22ND
HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1641...
An observer at Boston MA recorded a "great tempest of wind and rain from
the southeast all night, as fierce as a hurricane, and thereupon followed
the highest tide which we have seen since our arrival here". (David Ludlum)
...1957...
Extremely destructive Santa Ana winds blew from Oxnard to San Diego and
inland parts of southern California. The high winds produced a 28,000 acre
brush fire on a 40-mile front west of Crystal Lake. People were ordered off
streets in some areas due to flying debris. (21st-22nd) (The Weather
Channel)
...1991...
Over two inches of rainfall was received at the Jackson, KY Weather Office and 
the London, KY Corbin Airport in 1991. London measured 2.18 inches of 
rain...while Jackson picked up 2.99 inches of precipitation. Both amounts 
established new daily rainfall records for November 22nd.
