Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Jackson KY
334 PM EDT SAT MAY 28 2016

Variable cloud cover, along with instances of valley fog, was
present across Eastern Kentucky this morning. Temperatures at 7 am
were generally in the 60s. The hot spots were Gimlet in Elliott
County and Flemingsburg in Fleming County, both reporting 70
degrees. Typical lows for this time of year are in the mid to
upper 50s.

By mid afternoon, a few isolated showers had begun to move into
the region. Locations not affected by the showers were under
partly to mostly sunny skies. Temperatures were generally in the
lower to mid 80s. Seasonable values for the last part of May are
typically in the mid to upper 70s.

Unseasonably warm and humid conditions will continue through
Sunday as a stagnant ridge across the East Coast continues to
pump Gulf air into the region. As a result, isolated to scattered
showers and thunderstorms, mainly during the late afternoon and
early evening hours, will remain in the forecast through Sunday.
Lows tonight will be in the lower to mid 60s with highs on Sunday
in the lower to mid 80s.

On this date in weather history, in 1990, a tornado touched down
in the Farmers area of Rowan County. The tornado toppled trees,
damaged a home, and overturned several airplanes at the airport.
