REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
301 PM EDT MON JUL 21 2014

UNDER CLEAR SKIES...FOGGY CONDITIONS WERE ON TAP THROUGHOUT THE COAL
FIELDS THIS MORNING. MANY LOCATIONS HAD VISIBILITIES OF A HALF MILE
OR LESS AROUND SUNRISE. 7 AM TEMPERATURES WERE GENERALLY IN THE
MIDDLE AND UPPER 60S...WHICH IS NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. THE FOG
BURNT OFF BY MID MORNING. ABUNDANT MORNING SUNSHINE PUSHED THE
MERCURY INTO LOWER 80S BY NOON.

A MIXTURE OF SUN AND CLOUDS WERE NOTED OVER EASTERN KENTUCKY THIS
AFTERNOON. VERY WARM CONDITIONS WERE ALSO PRESENT...WITH MID
AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES IN THE MIDDLE 80S TO AROUND 90 DEGREES. IN
FACT...HUMID CONDITIONS MADE IT FEEL LIKE IT WAS IN THE 90S AT TIMES
THIS AFTERNOON AS WELL. TYPICAL HIGHS FOR LATE JULY ARE IN THE MIDDLE 80S.

WARM AND HUMID WEATHER WILL PREVAIL FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS. AN
AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IN THE UPPER ATMOSPHERE OVER THE SOUTHEAST
UNITED STATES COULD USE THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY TO PRODUCE A FEW
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH TUESDAY...MAINLY DURING THE
AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS. HOWEVER...PRECIPITATION COVERAGE SHOULD
REMAIN LIMITED...AND IT IS MORE LIKELY THAT ANY GIVEN LOCATION WILL
REMAIN DRY. THERE WILL BE A GREATER PROBABILITY OF RAIN FROM
WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY AS A COLD FRONT MOVES IN FROM THE NORTHWEST.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 1992...A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM
ROLLED THROUGH LEE AND OWSLEY COUNTIES. THE STORM BLEW DOWN SEVERAL
TREES NEAR BEATTYVILLE AND OUT IN LEE COUNTY. SEVERAL TREES AND
TOBACCO CROPS WERE ALSO BLOWN DOWN NEAR PEBWORTH IN OWSLEY COUNTY.
