REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
252 PM EDT WED OCT 29 2014

RAIN SHOWERS MOVED THROUGH EASTERN KENTUCKY DURING THE OVERNIGHT AND
MORNING HOURS. THE PRECIPITATION EXITED THE COMMONWEALTH BY MID
MORNING. RAINFALL AMOUNTS VARIED FROM AROUND A QUARTER OF AN INCH
NEAR INTERSTATE 64 TO OVER AN INCH IN PORTIONS OF SOUTH CENTRAL
KENTUCKY. CLOUDY SKIES PREVAILED FOR THE REST OF THE MORNING...BUT
SUNSHINE BEGAN TO PEEK THROUGH DURING THE AFTERNOON. BY MID
AFTERNOON...MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES WERE COMMON ACROSS THE COAL FIELDS.

7 AM TEMPERATURES WERE MOSTLY IN THE UPPER 40S TO THE LOWER 50S.
NORMAL LOWS FOR LATE OCTOBER ARE IN THE LOWER TO MIDDLE 40S. EVEN
THOUGH THE RAIN AND CLOUDS MOVED OUT OF THE AREA...COOLER AIR DID
NOT ALLOW THE MERCURY TO CLIMB TOO HIGH. MID AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES
WERE MOSTLY IN THE UPPER 50S TO LOWER 60S...SOME 15 DEGREES COOLER
THAN YESTERDAY. TYPICAL HIGHS FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR ARE IN THE MIDDLE
60S.

THANKS TO LAST NIGHT/S AND TODAY/S RAINFALL...BOTH THE JACKSON
WEATHER OFFICE AND THE LONDON CORBIN AIRPORT REGISTERED THEIR WETTEST
OCTOBERS ON RECORD. CURRENTLY JACKSON HAS OVER SEVEN AND A HALF
INCHES...WHILE LONDON HAS A TOTAL OF OVER EIGHT INCHES. CLIMATE DATA
FOR THE JACKSON WEATHER OFFICE DATES BACK TO 1981...WHILE WEATHER
INFORMATION FOR THE LONDON CORBIN AIRPORT BEGIN IN 1954.

LOOK FOR MORE FALL LIKE CONDITIONS FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS
HIGH PRESSURE MOVES INTO THE REGION. AFTER LOWS IN THE 30S
TONIGHT...HIGHS WILL ONLY WARM INTO THE 50S ON THURSDAY. ANOTHER
FRONTAL PASSAGE WILL BRING A CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION LATE FRIDAY
INTO SATURDAY. IN FACT...THERE IS A POSSIBILITY OF SNOW SHOWERS IN
THE MIX...BUT MOSTLY AT HIGHER ELEVATIONS.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...BACK IN 1971...AN UNSEASONABLY WARM
AIR MASS BROUGHT RECORD SETTING HIGH TEMPERATURES TO EASTERN
KENTUCKY. AT THE LONDON CORBIN AIRPORT...THE MERCURY PEAKED AT 80
DEGREES BOTH ON THE 29TH AND 30TH OF OCTOBER...SETTING HIGH
