REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
302 PM EDT MON JUL 6 2015

WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND/OR LIGHT DRIZZLE ALONG WITH SOME
PATCHY FOG WERE PRESENT ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY THIS MORNING. 7 AM
TEMPERATURES WERE MOSTLY IN THE MIDDLE AND UPPER 60S. NORMAL LOWS
FOR EARLY JULY ARE IN THE MIDDLE 60S. MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES WERE
PRESENT FOR THE REST OF THE MORNING AS A FEW SHOWERS MOVED OUT OF
THE COMMONWEALTH IN FAR EASTERN KENTUCKY. BY NOONTIME...TEMPERATURES
WERE IN THE MIDDLE AND UPPER 70S.

THIS AFTERNOON SAW A MIXTURE OF SUN AND CLOUDS AS A COUPLE OF
SHOWERS LINGERED IN JOHNSON...MARTIN AND PIKE COUNTIES. THOSE
SHOWERS DRIFTED INTO WEST VIRGINIA AND VIRGINIA THROUGHOUT THE
AFTERNOON. MID AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE COAL FIELDS WERE
IN THE UPPER 70S TO MIDDLE 80S. TODAY MARKED THE FIRST DAY IN JULY
2015 THAT THE JACKSON WEATHER OFFICE HIT 80 DEGREES. AT 3
PM...JACKSON HAS ONLY REACHED 80 DEGREES. IN FACT THE LAST TIME
THAT THE WEATHER OFFICE WAS ABOVE 80 DEGREES WAS 85 DEGREES BACK
ON JUNE 26TH. TYPICAL HIGHS FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR ARE IN THE
MIDDLE 80S.

LOOK FOR A GOOD CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO RETURN ON
TUESDAY...AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE REST OF THE WORK WEEK. LOOK FOR
A FRONTAL BOUNDARY TO MOVE INTO THE REGION AND LINGER ACROSS THE
REGION FOR MUCH OF THE WEEK. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE IN THE 80S
FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS...WITH LOWS IN THE MIDDLE AND UPPER 60S.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 1989...BETWEEN 3 AND 5 INCHES
OF RAIN FELL OVER PORTIONS OF BREATHITT AND OWSLEY COUNTIES THAT
EVENING. NEARLY 3 INCHES FELL IN A 45 MINUTE PERIOD IN SOUTHWEST
BREATHITT COUNTY. THE END RESULT WAS A CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF FLASH
FLOODING THAT CAN OCCUR IN NARROW MOUNTAIN VALLEY LOCATIONS...AS A
10 TO 15 FOOT WALL OF WATER WASHED OUT A BRIDGE AT THE MOUTH OF
MORRIS FORK CREEK. NEARLY 200 PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY OF MORRIS FORK
BECAME STRANDED. NUMEROUS HOMES WERE DAMAGED AND MANY VEHICLES WERE
WASHED AWAY. CROPS WERE COMPLETELY WASHED AWAY AND SOME FARM ANIMALS
WERE KILLED.
