Holiday Rains Soak Drought-Stricken Region

by Rick Howlett on November 26, 2010

The cold, steady rain that fell over the Louisville area on Thanksgiving Day may have put a damper on some holiday celebrations, but the National Weather Service says it went a long way toward easing the region’s drought conditions.

“We had several locations that got anywhere between two and three inches of rain just in that 24 hour period alone, then a nice switchover to snow late in the evening, ” said Ryan Sharp, a meteorologist at the agency’s Louisville office.

Sharp says rainfall this year is still several inches below normal.

There’s another chance of rain starting Monday with high temperatures in the 50s.
