NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
425 AM CDT Wed Aug 20 2014
It was a warm and muggy night across much of the four state
region. After some evening thunderstorm activity, skies cleared at
most locations by around midnight. Predawn temperatures were
mostly running in the upper 60s to mid 70s.
High pressure aloft will be building northward from the Gulf Coast
region as we head through the rest of the week. This will result
in the first extended heat wave of the Summer. High temperatures
will mostly be in the mid to upper 90s by week`s end. We can also
expect afternoon heat indices to run in the 100 to 105 range for
several days in a row. Therefore, a heat advisory has been issued
for the entire four state region beginning this afternoon and
lasting through Saturday afternoon. The chances for shower and
thunderstorms will also be dwindling this week as the high
pressure system expands over the region.
