Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Jackson KY
317 PM EDT MON MAY 23 2016

Clear skies with a few areas of patchy fog were on tap through
eastern Kentucky this morning. Cool conditions were also present
with 7 am temperatures mostly in the middle 40s to around 50
degrees. Normal lows for late May are in the middle 50s. The fog
dissipated by mid morning, leaving a mixture of sun and clouds
over the coal fields for the rest of the morning and into the
afternoon. Mid afternoon temperatures were generally in the
70s...which compares to typical highs in the middle and upper 70s
for this time of year.

Dry and pleasant weather will continue through Wednesday
morning. The period will feature cool mornings and mild
afternoons. Look for a threat of showers and thunderstorms to
return on Wednesday with the chance continuing through the
remainder of the week.

On this date in weather history, in 1978, high winds from a severe
thunderstorm in western Pulaski county blew the roof off of a
house. Also, in 1989, a flash flood washed out a bridge west of
Booneville. A car was trapped during the collapse. Jackson and
Owsley counties received widespread flooding with Kentucky state
routes 1938 and 887 closed for high water and mud slides.
