Dry conditions persisted, before a cold front pushed through the area Wednesday night and into Thursday, sparking a round of widespread showers. The majority of the state saw between a quarter and half inch. Temperatures struggled behind the boundary with lows Friday morning in the middle 20s and highs on the day struggling in the 40s. We saw those highs jump into the 50s over the weekend, but not without another round of widespread rain on Saturday night and Sunday. Overall, the state averaged 0.95 inches for the week between the two events. Some rain fell after the Sunday data cutoff across Eastern Kentucky and will be reflected on the report next week.
