WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
206 PM CDT TUE JUN 30 2015

AREA SKIES WERE GREETED BY A FAIRLY RARE PHENOMENA THIS MORNING IN
THE FORM OF SMOKE. NORTHWEST FLOW IN THE UPPER LEVELS OF THE
ATMOSPHERE HAS CAUSED SMOKE FROM CANADIAN WILDFIRES TO BE SHUTTLED
DOWN ACROSS THE MIDDLE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY. WHAT ESSENTIALLY LOOKS
LIKE A THICK CIRRUS SHIELD HAS KEPT TEMPERATURES DOWN JUST A BIT
TODAY. MORNING LOWS IN THE MID TO UPPER 60S HAVE RISEN INTO THE LOW
TO MID 80S THIS AFTERNOON. SOME CUMULUS CLOUDS HAVE DEVELOPED ACROSS
MAINLY PORTIONS OF WESTERN KENTUCKY AS THE FIRST COUPLE SHOWERS OF
THE DAY HAVE POPPED UP IN THE SOUTHERN PENNYRILE REGION. SCATTERED
SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL CONTINUE INTO THE EVENING HOURS.

A WET ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN IS DESCENDING ON THE LOWER OHIO VALLEY
WITH DAILY CHANCES OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. THE HIGHEST CHANCE
OF PRECIPITATION OCCURS WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT WHEN A HEALTHY
AMOUNT OF HEAVY RAIN ON THE ORDER OF 1 TO 3 INCHES LOOKS POSSIBLE.
THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND DOESN`T LOOK LIKE A COMPLETE WASHOUT BY ANY
MEANS BUT DAILY CHANCES OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EXIST WHICH
COULD POTENTIALLY HAVE AN IMPACT ON AREA FIREWORKS DISPLAYS.

WITH THE CLOUDS AND ASSOCIATED PRECIPITATION AROUND HIGH
TEMPERATURES WILL BE TEMPERED DOWN SOME AVERAGING AROUND 80 DEGREES
THROUGH SATURDAY. NIGHTTIME LOWS IN THE 60S TO NEAR 70 WILL BE
COMMON.
