REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
315 PM EDT THU MAY 21 2015

VERY LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS AND POCKETS OF DRIZZLE WERE IN PLACE
ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY THIS MORNING. IN FACT...DAMP CONDITIONS
EXISTED FOR MUCH OF THE COAL FIELDS FOR MOST OF THE DAY...AS AREAS
OF LIGHT PRECIPITATION LINGERED INTO THE AFTERNOON HOURS. RAINFALL
AMOUNTS WERE MOSTLY LIGHT...GENERALLY LESS THAN A TENTH OF AN
INCH THROUGH MID AFTERNOON.

THANKS TO THE CLOUDS AND DAMP CONDITIONS...THE TEMPERATURES DID
NOT CLIMB MUCH TODAY. 7 AM TEMPERATURES WERE GENERALLY IN THE
UPPER 40S TO LOWER 50S. NORMAL LOWS FOR LATE MAY ARE IN THE
MIDDLE 50S. BY MID AFTERNOON...EASTERN KENTUCKY TEMPERATURES WERE
MOSTLY NESTLED IN THE LOWER AND MIDDLE 50S. TYPICAL HIGHS ARE IN
THE MIDDLE 70S FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR.

LOOK FOR HIGH PRESSURE TO PROVIDE GENERALLY DRY CONDITIONS FOR THE
NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. THE NEXT DESCENT CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION WILL
ARRIVE LATE IN THE WEEKEND. AFTER A COOL THURSDAY...EASTERN KENTUCKY
WILL ENJOY HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE 70S FRIDAY AND SATURDAY.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY..IN 1990...THUNDERSTORMS PRODUCED
SEVERE WEATHER ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN PORTION OF THE UNITED STATES
FOR THE SECOND DAY IN A ROW. SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS SPAWNED 5
TORNADOES ...INCLUDING ONE WHICH INJURED A PERSON IN RICHMOND
KENTUCKY. IN MONTGOMERY AND BATH COUNTIES...NEARLY 3 INCHES OF RAIN
FELL IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME CAUSING AREA CREEKS AND STREAMS TO
COME OUT OF THEIR BANKS. NEARLY 8 FEET OF WATER WAS REPORTED OVER
SOME ROADS IN STEPSTONE IN BATH COUNTY. COWS WERE SWEPT AWAY BY
FLOOD WATER NEAR SALTWELL.
