324 PM EDT THU MAY 26 2016

Showers and cloudy skies asssociated with an upper-level
disturbance persisted throughout Eastern Kentucky this morning,
gradually clearing as the afternoon progressed. Temperatures at 7
am were generally in the low to mid 60s, which is slightly above
average for this time of year. As the clouds began to break, mid-
afternoon temperatures managed to reach into the low 70s ahead of
an advancing line of showers and thunderstorms marching across the

Unseasonably warm and humid conditions will persist throughout
the near future as a ridge across the East Coast continues to pump
Gulf Air into the region. As a result of this warm, moist air
mass, a few showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible throughout
the next few days.

On this date in weather history, in 1991, an early summer-like
air mass brought record breaking heat to portions of Eastern
Kentucky. At the Jackson Weather Office, temperatures soared into
the upper 80s each day from May 24th through May 26th,
establishing three consecutive daily high temperature records for
the dates.
