REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
316 PM EDT THU JUL 23 2015

CLOUDY SKIES AND PATCHY DENSE FOG WERE PRESENT THROUGHOUT MOST OF
THE SOUTHEASTERN PORTIONS OF THE STATE THIS MORNING...WITH A FEW
LOCATIONS EXPERIENCING VISIBILITIES OF LESS THAN A HALF MILE.
TEMPERATURES AT 7 AM WERE MOSTLY IN THE MID TO UPPER 60S...ON PAR
WITH THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. THAT BEING
SAID...THE VALLEYS WERE SLIGHTLY COOLER WITH A FEW MEASUREMENTS
IN THE LOW 60S. WHILE THE FOG EVENTUALLY DISSIPATED...AN OVERCAST
CLOUD DECK ASSOCIATED WITH A MID-LEVEL DISTURBANCE ENTERED THE
AREA KEEPING TEMPERATURES AT NOON NEAR THE MID 70 DEGREE
THRESHOLD.

OVERCAST SKIES MAINTAINED THROUGHOUT THE AFTERNOON HOURS AS
PRECIPITATION CAUSED BY THE AFOREMENTIONED DISTURBANCE BEGAN TO
IMPACT THE SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE STATE. WHILE SOME HEAVY
RAINFALL WAS PRESENT NEAR THE TENNESSEE BORDER...PRECIPITATION
AMOUNTS WERE MUCH LESS THAN EXPERIENCED IN THE PREVIOUS WEEKS. MID
AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES IN THE SOUTHERN AREAS OF THE COALFIELDS
STRUGGLED TO BREAK 80 DEGREES...WHILE PORTIONS FURTHER NORTH WITH
LESS CLOUD COVER WERE ABLE TO REACH THE LOW 80S. TYPICAL HIGHS FOR
LATE JULY ARE IN THE MIDDLE 80S.

AS THE DISTURBANCE MOVES THROUGH THE AREA THIS EVENING...EXPECT
PRECIPITATION IN THE SOUTHERN PORTION OF THE STATE TO TAPER OFF
WITH CLOUDS GRADUALLY CLEARING FROM THE NORTH THROUGH THE NIGHT.
OVERNIGHT LOWS ARE EXPECTED TO BE IN THE LOW TO MID 60S ACROSS THE
REGION. PLEASANT WEATHER CONDITIONS RETURN FRIDAY WITH HIGHS
REACHING THE MID 80S AND CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE WEEKEND.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 1973...HEAVY RAINS FELL OVER
PARTS OF SOUTHEAST KENTUCKY. THE HARDEST HIT AREA WAS MIDDLESBORO
IN BELL COUNTY WHERE LOCALIZED SEVERE FLOODING CAUSED CONSIDERABLE
DAMAGE THROUGHOUT THE CITY. THE COOPERATIVE WEATHER STATION
LOCATED 2 MILES NORTH OF THE CITY RECORDED 2.65 INCHES OF RAINFALL
FOR THE EVENT.
