Raining between 2am-5am is a pretty nice idea, but I think at this point, we'd take the rain at any time... and sooner rather than later. Most of WAVE Country is in a moderate/severe/extreme drought. Even parts of Indiana to the north of our viewing area are reporting "exceptional" drought conditions.
The drought is a nationwide problem, not just something we are dealing with here in Kentuckiana.
One of the major impacts we will feel from this year's drought is the increase in the price of food. While meat may temporarily go down (due to farmers taking their cattle to market sooner), we will first notice an increase in produce prices along with the many by-products produced from corn and soybean.
We do have a good chance of some rain in the near future. Unfortunately, we may see some severe storms during this time as a cold front moves through. Storms with strong winds and hail will be the main threats.
The rain from Thursday night-Friday afternoon will not be a drought buster with rain totals under half an inch... and in most cases closer or just under a quarter of an inch.
