REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
252 PM EDT MON AUG 31 2015

AREAS OF FOG AND SOME SEASONABLE TEMPERATURES WERE PRESENT ACROSS
THE COAL FIELDS THIS MORNING. MANY OF THE SHELTERED LOCATIONS SAW
VISIBILITIES OF LESS THAN A HALF MILE AT TIMES. 7 AM TEMPERATURES
THROUGHOUT EASTERN KENTUCKY WERE GENERALLY IN THE LOWER AND MIDDLE
60S...WHICH COMPARES TO NORMAL LOWS FOR THE LAST DAY OF AUGUST.
THE FOG BURNT OFF BY MID MORNING WITH A MIX OF SUN AND CLOUDS ON
TAP FOR THE REST OF THE MORNING HOURS. LUNCHTIME TEMPERATURES WERE
MOSTLY RIGHT AROUND THE 80 DEGREE MARK.

THIS AFTERNOON SAW JUST A FEW LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS IN SOUTHERN
KENTUCKY...ALTHOUGH THE REST OF EASTERN KENTUCKY JUST OBSERVED
SUN AND CLOUDS. MID AFTERNOON READINGS WERE MAINLY IN THE MIDDLE
80S...WHICH IS TYPICAL FOR HIGH TEMPERATURES FOR THIS TIME OF
YEAR.

LOOK FOR GENERALLY DRY CONDITIONS TO MOVE INTO THE REGION
TONIGHT...AND LINGERING FOR THE REST OF THE WORK WEEK. ALTHOUGH
THERE IS A SMALL CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WEDNESDAY
ALONG THE VIRGINIA BORDER. TEMPERATURES WILL WARM INTO THE UPPER
80S FOR THE BULK OF THE WORK WEEK...AND AROUND 90 DEGREES ON
FRIDAY.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 1995...A WEEK LONG HEAT WAVE WAS
COMING TO AN END IN EASTERN KENTUCKY. ON THAT DAY THE JACKSON
WEATHER OFFICE RECORDED A NEW DAILY HIGH OF 99 DEGREES. DURING THE
LAST WEEK OF AUGUST 1995...JACKSON RECORDED FOUR NEW RECORD HIGH
TEMPERATURES...AND TWENTY YEARS LATER THEY ALL STILL STAND.
