REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
312 PM EST THU FEB 26 2015

CLOUDY SKIES AND SNOW SHOWERS MOVED ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY THIS
MORNING. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS RANGED FROM A DUSTING NEAR THE MOUNTAIN
PARKWAY TO THREE INCHES IN FAR SOUTHEAST KENTUCKY. 7 AM
TEMPERATURES RANGED FROM THE MIDDLE 20S TO AROUND 30 DEGREES.
NORMAL LOWS FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR ARE NEAR THE FREEZING MARK. THE
SNOW SHOWERS MOVED OUT OF THE COMMONWEALTH BY MID MORNING. MOSTLY
CLOUDY SKIES PREVAILED FOR THE REST OF THE MORNING...WITH
TEMPERATURES IN THE LOWER AND MIDDLE 30S AT NOONTIME.

MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES CONTINUED INTO THE AFTERNOON HOURS...WITH A
FEW PEEKS OF SUNSHINE. MID AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES WERE GENERALLY
IN THE UPPER 30S AND LOWER 40S...ALTHOUGH LOCATIONS NORTH OF
INTERSTATE 64 WERE MIRED IN THE LOWER AND MIDDLE 30S. TYPICAL
HIGHS FOR LATE FEBRUARY ARE IN THE LOWER 50S.

LOOK FOR COLD HIGH PRESSURE TO MOVE INTO THE REGION TONIGHT. THERE
IS A SMALL CHANCE FOR SOME SNOW SHOWERS TONIGHT...WITH A GOOD SHOT
OF RAIN ARRIVING ON SUNDAY AND INTO THE NEW WORK WEEK.
TEMPERATURES WILL DROP TO THE 10 TO 15 DEGREE TONIGHT...AND INTO
THE SINGLE DIGITS ABOVE ZERO FRIDAY NIGHT. WARMING TEMPERATURES
WILL CREATE SNOW MELT ALONG WITH RAIN COULD CREATE SOME FLOODING
PROBLEMS EARLY NEXT WEEK. STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFORMATION OVER THE
NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 2000...A DEEP LOW PRESSURE
SYSTEM CENTERED OVER THE CENTRAL PLAINS...SETTING UP STRONG
SOUTHERLY FLOW OVER THE COMMONWEALTH. THIS BROUGHT UNSEASONABLY MILD
TEMPERATURES TO THE REGION OVER A 3 DAY PERIOD WHICH PEAKED ON THE
26TH. THE MERCURY CLIMBED TO 75 DEGREES IN LONDON. HOWEVER...IT WAS
NOT HIGH ENOUGH TO UNSEAT THE RECORD OF 81 DEGREES WHICH WAS SET ON
THIS DATE IN 1977. AT THE JACKSON AIRPORT...AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES
OF 76 DEGREES ON THE 25TH AND 26TH WERE BOTH WARM ENOUGH TO
ESTABLISH THE CURRENT RECORD HIGHS FOR BOTH DATES. CLIMATE RECORDS
FOR LONDON AND JACKSON DATE BACK TO 1954 AND 1981 RESPECTIVELY.
