Regional Weather Summary
Issued by NWS Paducah, KY
AWUS83 KPAH 310912
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
412 AM CDT Thu Jul 31 2014
A veil of clouds persisted across most of the Quad State region
from late Wednesday afternoon and into the evening hours, courtesy
of a developing weather disturbance moving eastward from the
Central and Southern Plains. A lesser amount of cloud cover was noted
over Southwest Indiana, and adjacent parts of Illinois and
Kentucky during this time.
Even with a light southerly wind in a few areas across the Quad
State region, the cloud cover helped keep temperatures some 5 to
10 degrees below normal. High temperatures for some of the major
cities across the region ranged from 77 degrees in Cape Girardeau
Missouri to 84 degrees in Evansville Indiana.
Considerable cloudiness lingered through the overnight hours,
holding temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s around 4 am
CDT Thursday morning. These temperatures are only slightly warmer
than 24 hours earlier.
Shortly after 3 am CDT Thursday morning, a few showers were noted
by radar moving into Southeast Missouri, mainly south of a Handy
to Bernie Missouri line.
A small chance for showers will expand eastward through the
morning hours today, possibly reaching as far as the Land Between
the Lakes and the Mississippi River. Any rain associated with the
passage of the weather disturbance should eventually move south
of the area by late this afternoon.
An upper level trough will keep a small chance for shower and
thunderstorm activity in place for Friday into early Saturday
across parts of the Quad State Region.
Beyond Saturday, dry weather will be the rule through the middle
of next week.
Lows will span the 60s and highs will be in the 80s during this
