NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
320 PM CDT Wed Aug 27 2014
Warm and humid weather continued overnight with some patchy fog
reported. It was mostly clear and calm with temperatures in
the lower to middle 70s during the nighttime hours. During the
day...skies were mostly sunny as hot and steamy conditions
persisted. Afternoon highs were in the lower and middle 90s and heat
indices ranged from 100 to 105 for the most part.
Little relief from the heat is expected over the next few days as
high pressure remains anchored over the southern United States.
However, a weak cold front over the Quad State will bring
temperatures down a few degrees Thursday and Friday. This will be
enough to keep heat indices below 100 degrees for the first time in
over a week. Scattered chances of showers and thunderstorms will
finish out the week.
Increasing chances of showers and thunderstorms will arrive over the
weekend with the passage of an upper level storm system. Even with
increased clouds and precipitation, temperatures should still hover
around the 90 degree mark and humidity levels will remain high.
