REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
301 PM EDT WED JUL 23 2014

WARM AND MUGGY CONDITIONS WERE ON TAP THIS MORNING ACROSS EASTERN
KENTUCKY. 7 AM TEMPERATURES WERE MOSTLY IN THE UPPER 60S TO LOWER
70S. NORMAL LOWS FOR LATE JULY ARE IN THE MIDDLE 60S. ALSO...A FEW
LOCATIONS REPORTED FOG AS WELL...BUT THE FOG DISSIPATED BY MID
MORNING. WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS STARTED FIRING UP DURING THE LATE
MORNING HOURS. BY NOONTIME...TEMPERATURES WERE MOSTLY IN THE LOWER TO
MIDDLE 80S.

SHOWERS AND A FEW THUNDERSTORMS MOVED THROUGH EASTERN KENTUCKY DURING
THE AFTERNOON. RAINFALL AMOUNTS WERE MOSTLY BETWEEN A TENTH AND A
HALF AN INCH IN LOCATIONS THAT DID RECEIVE RAIN. MID AFTERNOON
TEMPERATURES WERE GENERALLY IN THE MIDDLE 80S TO AROUND 90
DEGREES...ALTHOUGH DAMP AREAS WERE IN THE 70S. TYPICAL HIGHS FOR THIS
TIME OF YEAR ARE IN THE MIDDLE 80S.

WARM...HUMID...AND UNSTABLE CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE INTO TONIGHT.
LOOK FOR A COLD FRONT TO SLOWLY MOVE THROUGH THE AREA BRINGING A
GOOD CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO EASTERN KENTUCKY. SOME OF
THE STORMS WILL PRODUCE LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL. ONCE THE FRONT
PASSES THROUGH ON THURSDAY...DRIER AND COOLER AIR WILL FILTER INTO
THIS PART OF KENTUCKY BRINGING QUIET AND COMFORTABLE WEATHER THAT
WILL LAST THROUGH FRIDAY. HOWEVER... SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL STAGE A
RETURN TO OUR AREA BY LATE FRIDAY NIGHT.

ON THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 1973...HEAVY RAINS FELL OVER
PARTS OF SOUTHEAST KENTUCKY. THE HARDEST HIT AREA WAS MIDDLESBORO IN
BELL COUNTY WHERE LOCALIZED SEVERE FLOODING CAUSED CONSIDERABLE
DAMAGE THROUGHOUT THE CITY. THE COOPERATIVE WEATHER STATION LOCATED 2
MILES NORTH OF THE CITY RECORDED 2.65 INCHES OF RAINFALL FOR THE
EVENT. ALSO...LONDON RECEIVED 2.65 INCHES OF RAIN BACK IN 1965...A
DAILY PRECIPITATION RECORD THAT STILL STANDS TODAY.
