REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
302 PM EDT MON AUG 3 2015

AREAS OF FOG AND CLOUDY SKIES WERE ON TAP ACROSS THE COAL FIELDS
THIS MORNING. ALSO...A LARGE AREA OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
MOVED SOUTHWARD ACROSS THE OHIO RIVER INTO EASTERN KENTUCKY THIS
MORNING AS WELL. BUT MOST OF THE ACTIVITY DISSIPATED BY THE TIME
THE AREA PASSED INTERSTATE 64...LEAVING MOST OF THE EASTERN
KENTUCKY DRY. 7 AM TEMPERATURES WERE GENERALLY IN THE UPPER 50S
AND LOWER 60S...BELOW NORMAL LOWS IN THE MIDDLE 60S. BY
LUNCHTIME...SOME SUNSHINE MADE A RETURN AS TEMPERATURES WARMED
INTO THE UPPER 70S AND LOWER 80S.

MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES DOMINATED THE AFTERNOON SKIES OVER THE COAL
FIELDS. MID AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES WERE GENERALLY IN THE MIDDLE
AND UPPER 80S. TYPICAL HIGHS FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR ARE IN THE
MIDDLE 80S.

LOOK FOR A COLD FRONT TO BRING A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS TO EASTERN KENTUCKY FOR MUCH OF THE WORK WEEK. THE
BEST SHOT OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL OCCUR MID WEEK AS A
SERIES OF UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCES MOVE THROUGH THE REGION. LOOK
FOR HIGHS IN THE MIDDLE AND UPPER 80S AND LOWS IN THE MIDDLE TO
UPPER 60S FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS AS WELL.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 1977...A TORNADO TOUCHED DOWN
AT COW CREEK IN ESTILL COUNTY. THE TWISTER DESTROYED A MOBILE
HOME...DAMAGED ANOTHER...AS WELL AS TWO CARS. ITEMS FROM THE FIRST
HOME WERE FOUND THREE MILES TO THE EAST. THE TORNADO WAS RATED AN
F2...WITH A WIDTH OF 90 FEET. THE TORNADO WAS ON THE GROUND FOR 2.3
MILES.
