REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
334 PM EDT THU AUG 28 2014

A HUMID AND FOGGY START WAS ON TAP FOR MOST OF EASTERN KENTUCKY THIS
MORNING...WHERE AREAS OF DENSE FOG PLAGUED MANY OF OUR SOUTHEASTERN
COUNTIES. TEMPERATURES WERE ON THE SEASONABLE SIDE WITH LOWS RANGING
FROM THE UPPER 50S TO LOWER 60S.

AN AREA OF LOW LEVEL CLOUDS KEPT TEMPERATURES DOWN ACROSS
NORTHEASTERN KENTUCKY THROUGH THE MORNING AND EARLY AFTERNOON HOURS.
BY 3PM...THE CLOUDS BROKE UP AND TEMPERATURES JUMPED INTO THE MID
AND UPPER 80S. DEW POINT TEMPERATURES HAVE ALSO RISEN INTO THE LOW
70S...MAKING CONDITIONS FEEL A BIT WARMER THAN THE ACTUAL
TEMPERATURE.

AREAS OF VALLEY FOG ARE POSSIBLE AGAIN TONIGHT WITH LOW TEMPERATURES
FORECASTED IN THE MID 60S...JUST A BIT ABOVE THE NORMAL OF 64. IN
FACT...BOTH HIGH AND LOW TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO STAY ABOVE
NORMAL TONIGHT THROUGH AT LEAST LABOR DAY. ALSO...THE THREAT FOR
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS RETURN TOMORROW AND PERSIST THROUGH NEXT
WEDNESDAY. THE BEST CHANCE FOR RAINFALL WILL BE ON SUNDAY AND MONDAY.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 1884...THE FIRST KNOWN
PHOTOGRAPH OF A TORNADO WAS MADE BY F.N. ROBINSON OF HOWARD...DAKOTA
TERRITORY. THIS ALLOWED THE SCIENCE OF METEOROLOGY THE FIRST GLIMPSE
AT THE STORM THAT MOST HAD ONLY HEARD OF OR READ ABOUT...BUT FEW HAD
EVER WITNESSED. PHOTOGRAPHS WERE VERY RARE OF TORNADOES...AS IT WAS
NOT UNTIL THE 1960S THAT CAMERAS BECAME SIMPLE AND INEXPENSIVE
ENOUGH FOR ORDINARY PEOPLE TO HAVE THEM IN THEIR HOMES.
