REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
309 PM EDT MON APR 25 2016

UNDER MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES...A NICE RANGE IN MORNING TEMPERATURES
WAS PRESENT ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY. 7 AM READINGS VARIED FROM THE
MIDDLE 40S IN THE SHELTERED VALLEYS TO THE LOWER 60S ON THE
RIDGES. NORMAL LOWS FOR LATE APRIL ARE IN THE UPPER 40S. A
MIXTURE OF SUN AND CLOUDS WERE ON TAP THROUGHOUT THE COAL FIELDS
TODAY. MID AFTERNOON READINGS WERE GENERALLY AROUND 80
DEGREES...WHICH COMPARES TO TYPICAL HIGH TEMPERATURES FOR THIS
TIME OF YEAR.

LOOK FOR UNSETTLED WEATHER FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS...THANKS TO A
FRONTAL BOUNDARY SETTING UP IN THE REGION. THE CHANCE FOR SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS EXISTS TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY...WITH DRY
CONDITIONS RETURNING ON FRIDAY. MID WEEK RAINFALL AMOUNTS WILL
MOSTLY AVERAGE AROUND AN INCH TO AN INCH AND A HALF. HIGHS WILL
GENERALLY BE IN THE LOWER 80S TUESDAY...AROUND 80 DEGREES
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY...AND SLIPPING INTO THE MIDDLE 70S FRIDAY.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...THE TEMPERATURE AT THE JACKSON
WEATHER OFFICE HAD FALLEN TO 35 DEGREES ON THREE SEPARATE OCCASIONS.
ALL SHARE THE HONOR OF BEING THE RECORD LOW TEMPERATURE FOR THIS
DATE. THE FIRST 35 DEGREE READING OCCURRED IN 1983...THEN AGAIN IN
1988...AND FINALLY SEVEN YEARS LATER IN 1995. CLIMATE RECORDS FOR
JACKSON DATE BACK TO 1981.
