  This Day in Local Weather History ...
 23 October 2007 → After months of drought, steady soaking rains drenched the entire area. From the 22nd into the 23rd Louisville, Lexington, and Bowling Green all set 2-day October rainfall records. On the 23rd at Lexington the 2-day October rainfall record was broken in just one day, and it was the wettest day ever seen in Lexington in October, breaking the old record by almost two inches! The heaviest rain fell in Hardin County, where more than 8 inches of rainfall was recorded. Despite all this, there was no flooding due to the previously dry conditions and drawn-out period of rainfall.
