REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
323 PM EST WED FEB 3 2016

A LINE OF SHOWERS WITH SOME STRONG WINDS MOVED THROUGH EASTERN
KENTUCKY DURING THE PREDAWN AND MORNING HOURS. THE PRECIPITATION
EXITED THE COMMONWEALTH BY LATE MORNING. RAINFALL TOTALS AVERAGED
AROUND AN INCH OF SO...WITH THE HIGHEST AMOUNTS JUST OVER AN INCH
AND A HALF MOSTLY CONCENTRATED IN SOUTH CENTRAL KENTUCKY.
TEMPERATURES WERE MAINLY IN THE 50S THROUGH THE MORNING. THE SUN
BURST THROUGH THE CLOUDS DURING THE AFTERNOON...WARMING THE COAL
FIELDS INTO THE 60S BY MID AFTERNOON. NORMAL LOWS FOR EARLY
FEBRUARY ARE IN THE UPPER 20S WITH HIGHS USUALLY IN THE MIDDLE
40S.

DRIER AND COOLER WEATHER WILL BE ON TAP FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK. AN
AREA OF WEAK HIGH PRESSURE IN PLACE OVER KENTUCKY THROUGH THE
WEEKEND SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO KEEP THE PRECIPITATION AT BAY BUT NOT
ENOUGH TO KEEP THE SKIES CLEAR. LOOK FOR A TURN TO MUCH COLDER AND
MORE WINTRY WEATHER EARLY NEXT WEEK.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 1998...AN EPIC SNOWSTORM
BEGAN AND DID NOT END UNTIL THREE DAYS LATER. FROM FEBRUARY 3RD
THROUGH THE 6TH...17.6 INCHES OF SNOW FELL AT THE JACKSON JULIAN
CARROLL AIRPORT...ALTHOUGH AROUND TWO FEET OF SNOW FELL NORTH OF
THE INTERSTATE 64 CORRIDOR. AREAS TO THE EAST NEAR THE VIRGINIA
AND WEST VIRGINIA BORDERS SAW LESSER AMOUNTS...GENERALLY FROM 4 TO
8 INCHES. THE VERY WET NATURE OF THE SNOW MADE IT HEAVY...WHICH
CAUSED A LOT OF DAMAGE TO TREES AND SMALL STRUCTURES. THE WORST
DAMAGE WAS EXPERIENCED FROM WHITLEY CITY TO FRENCHBURG.
