Weather Summary
National Weather Service Paducah KY
245 PM CDT SAT APR 30 2016

Numerous showers and isolated thunderstorms were moving northeast
across the region earlier this morning, associated with a warm front
lifting north. 24 hour rainfall amounts have ranged from a quarter
of an inch near the I-64 corridor to greater than 1.5 inches near
the Arkansas/Missouri border. The back edge of the rain moved from
west to east late this morning into early this afternoon. Aside from
a few light showers over the eastern counties, dry conditions
prevail at 2pm. Some sunshine has even been noted peaking out of the
high cirrus shield overhead. Temperatures started the day in the
upper 50s to lower 60s and have slowly risen into the mid 60s to
lower 70s this afternoon. Winds have shifted to southerly behind the
warm front that has shifted north of the area.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to redevelop this
evening into tonight. A few strong storms can`t be ruled out, but
the overall threat is low. More showers and storms are possible
tomorrow over mainly the eastern half of the area, as a cold front
moves through. Once again a few strong storms are possible. A dry
period Sunday night looks to be replaced by more precipitation for
the southern half of the area on Monday, as a disturbance passes by
to our south. Another cold front on Wednesday may bring more chances
of rain to the area. High temperatures will fluctuate through the
60s and 70s for the coming week, with the warmest day being Sunday
and coolest on Monday. After a mild night tonight in the upper 50s
to lower 60s, lows will mostly be in the 40s to lower 50s through
the week.
