SPOT FORECAST FOR DU QUOIN STATE FAIR...CITY OF DU QUOIN EMA/PERRY COUNTY EMA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
621 AM CDT THU SEP 3 2015

FORECAST IS BASED ON INCIDENT TIME OF 0602 CDT ON SEPTEMBER 03.

IF CONDITIONS BECOME UNREPRESENTATIVE...CONTACT THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE.

.DISCUSSION...
THERE WERE A FEW BRIEF SHOWERS AND ONE BRIEF THUNDERSTORM ACROSS
THE REGION YESTERDAY...AND SIMILAR DEVELOPMENT CANNOT BE RULED OUT
THIS AFTERNOON. ODDS OF ONE HITTING THE FAIR ARE VERY SLIM...BUT
NON-ZERO. A BRIEF HEAVY DOWNPOUR AND A COUPLE OF LIGHTNING
STRIKES WOULD BE THE PRIMARY CONCERNS IF ONE DID DEVELOP OVER THE
FAIR. DUE TO THE SHORT-LIVED NATURE OF THIS ACTIVITY IT WILL BE
VERY DIFFICULT TO PROVIDE MUCH LEAD TIME. YOUR BEST BET WILL BE
TO KEEP AN EYE TO THE SKY THIS AFTERNOON.

OTHERWISE...THE HEAT WILL BE THE PRIMARY ISSUE THROUGH AT LEAST
SUNDAY. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL GENERALLY BE IN THE LOWER 90S WITH
HEAT INDICES TOPPING OUT IN THE MIDDLE 90S EACH AFTERNOON. WITH
SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE DOMINATING THE REGION...WINDS WILL CONTINUE
TO BE LIGHT.
