Regional Weather Summary

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
302 AM CDT Sat Jul 26 2014
Skies became mostly clear by late evening across the Quad State
Area and remained that way into the overnight period. Some mid
level clouds may start invading parts of the area from the north
as we head toward dawn however. Temperatures at 300 am were
generally in the 60s with light south winds.
Summertime returns in earnest today and Sunday, with temperatures
soaring well into the 90s and heat index values nearing triple
digits, due to the increase in humidity. A weather disturbance
will approach the area today, resulting in a chance for showers
and storms mainly across parts of southern IL and southwest IN.
Chances for precipitation will continue into tonight and Sunday
for these same areas, but also include the rest of the region, as
a cold front approaches and then moves through.
By Monday, much lower humidity will usher in, along with
significantly cooler temperatures. We will drop back down into the
lower 80s for the entire week, with some locales only reaching the
upper 70s on Tuesday. Temperatures will gradually moderate into
mid 80s by the end of the week, and that is also when rain chances
will start to pick up.
