Morning sky conditions ranged from clear to cloudy across the coal
fields. The clouds were mostly over central Kentucky and
eventually spread into eastern Kentucky throughout the day. 7 am
temperatures were generally in the 50s...which compares to normal
lows in the middle 50s for late May. A few showers begin to fire
up in south central Kentucky during the early afternoon. Mid
afternoon temperatures were mostly in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
Typical highs for this time of year are in the middle to upper

High pressure centered to our southeast will remain our most
prominent influence to finish the week, but will gradually start
to fade away. A few showers or thunderstorms can not be ruled out
over the next several days, but the probability on any given day
is still rather low.

On this date in weather history, in 1979, an unseasonably cool
air mass resulted in record setting cold temperatures for the
London Corbin airport. The mercury bottomed out at 41 degrees in
the morning and then only recovered to a mere 49 degrees for the
day. This established a record low temperature as well as a record
minimum high temperature for the date. Although the low
temperature record was broken with 40 degrees last year, the
minimum high temperature record still stands. Climate records for
London date back to 1954.
