NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
130 PM CST Wed Dec 11 2013
Wednesday morning saw another round of light freezing fog in
several communities, which quickly burned by mid morning. Skies
were clear to partly cloudy with morning temperatures in the
single digits north to the upper teens and around 20 in southern
sections of the Quad State area. Ahead of an approaching cold
front, afternoon highs climbed into the upper 30s to the low 40s.
Another shot of Arctic surface high pressure will surge through the
area by this evening, leading to very cold temperatures Thursday. South
winds will quickly develop Friday ahead of a weakening upper level
storm system. This system will bring precipitation to the region
late Friday through early Saturday. Some sleet, snow and freezing
rain will be possible, mainly over northern portions of the
region, but most of the area should see a cool rain with
temperatures just above freezing. Some very minor snow and ice
accumulations cannot be ruled out at this time. Another cool down
is expected behind this system for Sunday and Monday.
