REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
248 PM EDT SUN MAY 24 2015

UNDER MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES...A WIDE RANGE IN TEMPERATURES WAS ON TAP
THIS MORNING. 7 AM TEMPERATURES VARIED FROM AROUND 50 DEGREES IN
THE SHELTERED VALLEYS TO NEAR 60 DEGREES ELSEWHERE. NORMAL LOWS
FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR ARE IN THE THE LOWER 50S. ABUNDANT MORNING
SUNSHINE WARMED EASTERN KENTUCKY UP NICELY...WITH NOONTIME

IT WAS ANOTHER PLEASANT DAY ACROSS THE COAL FIELDS AGAIN TODAY.
UNDER MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES...MID AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE
UPPER 70S AND LOWER 80S. TYPICAL HIGHS FOR LATE MAY ARE IN THE

LOOK FOR A SMALL CHANCE OF ACTIVE WEATHER ARRIVING ON MEMORIAL
DAY AS A COLD FRONT APPROACHES THE REGION. A BETTER SHOT OF
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE LATE IN THE DAY AND INTO MONDAY
NIGHT. IN FACT...UNSETTLED WEATHER WILL CONTINUE FOR MUCH OF THE
WEEK...WITH CHANCES GROWING SMALLER AS WE HEAD INTO FRIDAY. WARM
CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE THOUGH...WITH HIGHS IN THE 80S MEMORIAL
DAY AND TUESDAY.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 1996...SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS
MOVED ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY. NUMEROUS REPORTS OF LARGE HAIL AND
WIND DAMAGE WERE RECEIVED. GOLF BALL SIZE HAIL WAS REPORTED IN
SALYERSVILLE...NEAR PRESTONSBURG...AND IN DRY CREEK IN KNOTT COUNTY.
IN JACKSON...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WINDS BLEW THE ROOF OFF A
STORE...AND DAMAGED THE ROOF OF AN OLD FACTORY. HEAVY RAINS ALSO
