Kentucky Weekly Weather Summary

Kentucky Climate Summary For the Period June 19 to June 25, 2017 Below Normal Temperatures and Much Above Normal Rainfall: Extremely wet conditions returned to the Bluegrass State as the remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy and a cold front interacted with one another over the latter half of the workweek. The state saw a couple rounds of widespread showers and storms, the first coming on Thursday and the other Friday. With abundant moisture in place, torrential downpours were common across the area.

Overall, much of the state saw over an inch for the week, but some areas in the Bluegrass hardest hit by flooding received in upwards of 2 to 3 inches. Just like earlier in the workweek, the passing cold front signaled the start of a cooler, less humid, and dry pattern for the weekend.
