REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
303 PM EDT TUE JUL 7 2015

PARTLY TO MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES WERE ON TAP ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY
THIS MORNING. A FEW VALLEY LOCATIONS NOTED DENSE FOG THIS MORNING
AS WELL WITH VISIBILITIES OF A HALF MILE OR LESS AT TIMES. 7 AM
TEMPERATURES THROUGHOUT EASTERN KENTUCKY WERE MOSTLY IN THE MIDDLE
60S TO AROUND 70 DEGREES. NORMAL LOWS FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR ARE IN
THE MIDDLE 60S. THE FOG DISSIPATED BY MID MORNING...LEAVING A
MIXTURE OF SUN AND CLOUDS. BY NOONTIME...TEMPERATURES WERE RIGHT
AROUND 80 DEGREES.

SKIES BECAME CLOUDY ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY THIS AFTERNOON. BY
MID AFTERNOON...A FEW SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS POPPED UP AND
MOVED THROUGH THE CENTRAL AND NORTHERN COAL FIELDS. RAINFALL
AMOUNTS WERE GENERALLY A QUARTER OF AN INCH OR LESS...ALTHOUGH A
COUPLE ISOLATED LOCATIONS PICKED UP A QUICK ONE INCH. MID
AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES WERE MOSTLY IN THE LOWER AND MIDDLE
80S...ALTHOUGH LOCATIONS THAT SAW RAINFALL WERE IN THE 70S.
TYPICAL HIGHS FOR EARLY JULY ARE IN THE MIDDLE 80S.

LOOK FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO CONTINUE THROUGH WEDNESDAY
AS A FRONTAL BOUNDARY MOVES INTO THE REGION AND LINGERS THROUGH
MID WEEK. THE SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL THEN RISE AND
FALL THROUGH THE REST OF THE WEEK DEPENDING ON HOW THE FRONTAL
BOUNDARY WAVERS OVER THE OHIO VALLEY. WHAT IS FOR SURE THOUGH...IS
THAT HEAT AND HUMIDITY WILL BE WITH EAST KENTUCKY THROUGH THE
WEEKEND AS TEMPERATURES PEAK IN THE 80S EACH DAY...AND FALLING
ONLY INTO THE MIDDLE AND UPPER 60S AT NIGHT MAKING FOR MUGGY
CONDITIONS.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...WAS THE END OF THE RECORD
BREAKING HEATWAVE OF 2012. THE 10 DAY STRETCH FROM JUNE 28TH
THROUGH JULY 7TH SAW MANY RECORDS TIED OR BROKEN...INCLUDING THE
ALL TIME HIGHS AT JACKSON AND LONDON. THE LONDON CORBIN AIRPORT
TOPPED OUT AT 105 DEGREES ON JUNE 29TH...AND THE JACKSON WEATHER
OFFICE HIT 104 DEGREES THE SAME DAY. CLIMATE RECORDS FOR JACKSON
DATE BACK TO 1981...AND WEATHER RECORDS FOR LONDON DATE BACK TO
1954.
