Unusually High Rainfall Totals Could Prevent Drought

For the month of June, the Louisville-area has tallied almost three times more rain than average.National Weather Service meteorologist Don Kirkpatrick says so far this month, Louisville has received more than seven-and-a-half inches of rain, well above the average of two-point-seven inches.Kirkpatrick says the extra precipitation is helpful.“It bodes well for us to be getting a lot of rainfall in the spring and early summer because as we go into the summer and into the fall each month gets progressively drier," he says.But, Kirkpatrick says, the extra rain doesn’t completely safeguard the area from drought later this year.
