Weather Summary
National Weather Service Paducah KY
255 PM CDT FRI APR 29 2016

Filtered sunshine early this morning quickly faded as mid and high
clouds streamed east associated with a large complex of rain and
embedded thunderstorms over Arkansas and southwest Missouri. The
rain shield made it into southeast Missouri late this morning and
has moved east into southern Illinois and the Jackson Purchase area
of west Kentucky this afternoon. It will continue to track east
through the rest of the afternoon, into the Pennyrile region of west
Kentucky. Temperatures this morning ranged through the 50s. Readings
have been held in the upper 50s to around 60 where rain is currently
falling. Eastern counties are approaching 70 degrees where dry
conditions still persist.

Several rounds of showers and storms will move across the region
tonight through the weekend. The best chances appear to be after
midnight tonight through Saturday night with chances diminishing
from west to east through the day and early evening on Sunday. A few
strong to severe storms are possible on Saturday across much of the
area and again Sunday mainly over western Kentucky. A general one to
two inches of rainfall is anticipated by the time the system departs
later Sunday.

Despite the unsettled, wet weather, temperatures will be fairly warm
in the 70s for highs and around 60 for lows this weekend. Somewhat
cooler weather returns early next week with highs in the upper 60s
to around 70 and lows dipping into the lower 50s.
