REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
324 PM EDT SAT MAR 28 2015

WINTRY TYPE WEATHER WAS EXPERIENCED ACROSS THE COAL FIELDS AS
FOLKS RETIRED YESTERDAY EVENING. AT SUNSET YESTERDAY...MANY FOLKS
WERE WATCHING FLURRIES MOVE THROUGH THE AREA. TEMPERATURES SETTLED
INTO THE LOW 20S BY DAYBREAK AND LIGHT SNOW WAS STILL FALLING.
ONLY TRACE AMOUNTS OF SNOW FALL WERE REPORTED OVER THE PAST 24
HOURS. JUST AFTER SUNRISE MANY AREAS WERE SEEING CLEAR SKIES AND
FLURRIES WERE CONCENTRATED ALONG THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS TO THE
SOUTH AND SOUTHEAST.

SKIES BECAME PARTLY CLOUDY DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS AND
TEMPERATURES ROSE INTO THE LOW 30S. AT NOONTIME...FLURRIES
LINGERED IN THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF LETCHER AND HARLAN COUNTIES AND
THE TEMPERATURE ON TOP OF BLACK MOUNTIAN WAS 16 DEGREES. THE EARLY
SPRING SUNSHINE MANAGED TO PUSH AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES INTO THE
MID AND UPPER 30S.

COLDER AND MUCH DRIER AIR WILL CONTINUE TO INVADE THE COAL
FIELDS. SOME OF THE COLDEST LATE MARCH TEMPERATURES IN DECADES ARE
EXPECTED IN THE MORNING. MID TEENS TO LOW 20S ARE EXPECTED IN THE
MORNING. HIGH PRESSURE SHOULD KEEP THE AREA DRY FOR THE REMAINDER
OF THE WEEKEND. AS THE HIGH SHIFTS SOUTHEAST THE NEXT FRONTAL
SYSTEM WILL APPROACH FROM THE NORTHWEST.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IS
FORECASTING TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER TEENS TO LOWER 20S ON
SUNDAY MORNING...WITH POSSIBLY A FEW MID TEENS. SINCE 1981 THE
JACKSON OFFICE HAS NEVER RECORDED A LOW TEMPERATURE IN THE TEENS
DURING THE LAST WEEK OF MARCH. ON MARCH 17TH...2013 JACKSON
RECORDED A LOW OF 17 DEGREES. THE RECORD LOW FOR LONDON ON MARCH
29TH IS 17 DEGREES AND OCCURRED BACK IN 1966. THIS WEEKEND LOOKS
TO BE VERY COLD. THIS WEEKEND/S FORECASTED LOW TEMPERATURES ARE
COLDER THAN ANY WE HAVE SEEN AT THE END OF MARCH FOR ALMOST 50
YEARS.
