REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
346 PM EDT FRI SEP 12 2014

AS A COLD FRONT TRAVERSED EASTERN KENTUCKY YESTERDAY
AFTERNOON...MANY LOCATIONS RECEIVED BETWEEN 0.5 AND 1.0 INCH OF
RAINFALL. AN IMPRESSIVE RAINFALL TOTAL OF 2.56 INCHES WAS RECORDED
IN PIKEVILLE. AFTER THE RAIN HAD ENDED...TEMPERATURES STARTED TO
COOL AS A CANADIAN AIR MASS MOVED OVER OUR REGION. OVERNIGHT LOW
TEMPERATURES WERE RIGHT AROUND THE NORMAL LOW OF 60 DEGREES.
HOWEVER...A FEW LOCATIONS DID DIP INTO THE 50S.

TEMPERATURES STRUGGLED TO WARM MUCH THROUGHOUT THE MORNING AND EARLY
AFTERNOON HOURS DUE TO A STUBBORN STRATUS DECK. BY MID
AFTERNOON...HIGH TEMPERATURES WERE AVERAGING IN THE MID TO UPPER
60S. THIS IS SIGNIFICANTLY COOLER THAN OUR NORMAL HIGH OF 79
DEGREES.

TONIGHT AND TOMORROW...EXPECT MUCH OF THE SAME UNSEASONABLY COOL
WEATHER WITH OVERNIGHT LOW TEMPERATURES IN THE LOWER 60S AND HIGH
TEMPERATURES NEAR 70. DUE TO A STALLED FRONT IN OUR REGION...A
SLIGHT CHANCE FOR SHOWERS WILL PERSIST THROUGH TOMORROW EVENING.
SUNDAY APPEARS TO BE THE NICER PART OF THE WEEKEND WITH HIGHS IN THE
MID 70S WITH NO CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION.

ON THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 2014...LOOKS LIKE THE JACKSON
CARROLL AIRPORT MIGHT BREAK THE MINIMUM HIGH TEMPERATURE RECORD FOR
TODAY. THE MINIMUM HIGH TEMPERATURE...RECORDED JUST AFTER
MIDNIGHT...WAS 67 DEGREES. THE PREVIOUS RECORD OF 68 DEGREES WAS
LAST SET IN 1985.
