REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
256 PM EDT SUN JUL 6 2014

VARIABLE CLOUDINESS AND COOL CONDITIONS WERE NOTED THIS MORNING.
ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY. 7 AM TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE MIDDLE AND
UPPER 50S AT MOST LOCATIONS. NORMAL LOWS FOR EARLY JULY ARE IN THE
MIDDLE 60S. A MIXTURE OF SUN AND CLOUDS WERE PRESENT FOR THE REST OF
THE MORNING HOURS. BY NOONTIME...TEMPERATURES HAD WARMED INTO THE
UPPER 70S AND LOWER 80S.

THIS AFTERNOON SAW PARTLY TO MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES WITH A FEW CUMULUS
CLOUDS ON TAP OVER THE COAL FIELDS. MID AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES WERE
MOSTLY IN THE LOWER TO MIDDLE 80S. TYPICAL HIGHS FOR THIS TIME OF
YEAR ARE IN THE MIDDLE 80S.

AFTER A PLEASANT WEEKEND...LOOK FOR THE WEATHER TO TURN MORE ACTIVE
BY MONDAY AFTERNOON...AS A FRONTAL BOUNDARY PUSHES INTO THE OHIO
RIVER VALLEY. THIS FRONTAL ZONE WILL SLOWLY WORK SOUTHWARD THROUGH
WEDNESDAY...PROVIDING A PERIOD OF UNSETTLED WEATHER. THE BEST
CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL COME TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY
AS THIS FRONTAL BOUNDARY CROSSES EASTERN KENTUCKY. ANY STORMS WHICH
DEVELOP FROM MONDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT COULD BECOME
SEVERE WITH DAMAGING WINDS AND HAIL. WARM TEMPERATURES WILL BUILD
BACK INTO THE AREA THROUGH TUESDAY...BEFORE THE PASSAGE OF THE COLD
FRONT BRINGS SLIGHTLY COOLER READINGS BACK TO THE AREA FROM
WEDNESDAY ONWARD.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 1989...BETWEEN 3 AND 5 INCHES
OF RAIN FELL OVER PORTIONS OF BREATHITT AND OWSLEY COUNTIES THAT
EVENING. NEARLY 3 INCHES FELL IN A 45 MINUTE PERIOD IN SOUTHWEST
BREATHITT COUNTY. THE END RESULT WAS A CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF FLASH
FLOODING THAT CAN OCCUR IN NARROW MOUNTAIN VALLEY LOCATIONS...AS A
10 TO 15 FOOT WALL OF WATER WASHED OUT A BRIDGE AT THE MOUTH OF
MORRIS FORK CREEK. NEARLY 200 PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY OF MORRIS FORK
BECAME STRANDED. NUMEROUS HOMES WERE DAMAGED AND MANY VEHICLES WERE
WASHED AWAY. CROPS WERE COMPLETELY WASHED AWAY AND SOME FARM ANIMALS
WERE KILLED.
