Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Jackson KY
249 PM EDT FRI JUL 29 2016

Some spotty showers and a couple of isolated thunderstorms moved
through the coal fields today. Rainfall amounts were generally
under a tenth of an inch although portions of south central
Kentucky received up to three quarters of an inch with the
stronger storms. After lows in the upper 60s this morning...the
mercury warmed into the lower and middle 80s by mid afternoon.
Temperatures dropped back into the 70s as rain moved through.
Normal lows are in the middle 60s with highs generally in the
middle 80s for late July.

Look for the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms
across eastern Kentucky for the next couple of days as a
frontal boundary and humid airmass languishes across the
area. Lows will be in the upper 60s with highs in the middle 80s
over the weekend.

On this day in weather history, in 2000, severe thunderstorms
produced damaging winds across parts of eastern Kentucky. In
Pulaski county, a mobile home was overturned and a porch was blown
off of a home in the community of Nancy. Telephone poles and
trees were downed just north of Burnside. Trees were also downed
in Laurel, Clay, Magoffin and Pike counties.
