REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
353 PM EDT SAT MAY 23 2015

UNDER VARIABLE SKY COVER...SOME UNSEASONABLY COOL CONDITIONS WERE
IN PLACE ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY THIS MORNING. 7 AM TEMPERATURES
VARIED FROM THE LOWER 40S TO AROUND 50 DEGREES. NORMAL LOWS FOR
LATE MAY ARE IN THE MIDDLE 50S. THE REST OF THE MORNING HOURS SAW
PLENTIFUL SUNSHINE AS THE MERCURY EASED INTO THE UPPER 60S AND
LOWER TO MIDDLE 70S BY LUNCHTIME.

UNDER SUNNY SKIES...PLEASANT CONDITIONS WERE ONCE AGAIN ON TAP
THIS AFTERNOON. TEMPERATURES DURING THE MID AFTERNOON WERE MOSTLY
IN THE MIDDLE AND UPPER 70S. TYPICAL HIGHS FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR
ARE IN THE MIDDLE 70S.

LOOK FOR GENERALLY DRY CONDITIONS FOR ONE MORE DAY...WITH A SMALL
CHANCE FOR ACTIVE WEATHER ARRIVING ON MEMORIAL DAY AS A COLD FRONT
APPROACHES THE REGION. A BETTER SHOT OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
WILL BE LATE IN THE DAY AND INTO MONDAY NIGHT. IN FACT UNSETTLED
WEATHER WILL CONTINUE FOR MUCH OF THE WEEK...WITH CHANCES GROWING
SMALLER AS WE HEAD INTO FRIDAY. WARM CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE
THOUGH...WITH HIGHS IN THE 80S TOMORROW AND MONDAY.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 1978...HIGH WINDS FROM A SEVERE
THUNDERSTORM IN WESTERN PULASKI COUNTY BLEW THE ROOF OFF OF A HOUSE.
ALSO...IN 1989...A FLASH FLOOD WASHED OUT A BRIDGE WEST OF
BOONEVILLE. A CAR WAS TRAPPED DURING THE COLLAPSE. JACKSON AND
OWSLEY COUNTIES RECEIVED WIDESPREAD FLOODING...WITH KENTUCKY STATE
ROUTES 1938 AND 887 CLOSED FOR HIGH WATER AND MUD SLIDES.
