WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
303 AM CDT WED JUN 24 2015

BY MID-AFTERNOON YESTERDAY...A SOUTHWARD-MOVING FRONTAL BOUNDARY HAD
MADE IT MOST OF THE WAY THROUGH THE QUAD STATE REGION. JUST AHEAD OF
IT...A BROKEN LINE OF SHOWERS DEVELOPED IN THE LATE AFTERNOON NEAR
THE ARKANSAS AND TENNESSEE STATE LINES...AND MOVED SOUTHEASTWARD.
LIGHTNING DIDN`T START TO OCCUR UNTIL THE ACTIVITY CROSSED THE STATE
LINES...AND ANY LINGERING SHOWERS IN SOUTHEASTERN MISSOURI WERE GONE
BY MID EVENING. A WIDE BAND OF CLOUDS ASSOCIATED WITH THE FRONT
GRADUALLY MOVED SOUTHWARD THROUGHOUT THE AFTERNOON. THE CLOUDS...
COMBINED WITH THE SLIGHTLY COOLER DRIER AIR MOVING IN...HELPED TO
LIMIT THE PEAK TEMPERATURES TO AROUND 90...EXCEPT FOR POPLAR BLUFF
WHERE THE HIGH WAS 93. BY AROUND MIDNIGHT...THERE WAS A THICK SHIELD
OF CIRRUS CLOUDINESS BLOWN OFF FROM ALL THE STORMS TO OUR SOUTH...
PLUS EARLIER ACTIVITY OVER CENTRAL MISSOURI. NOT LONG AFTER
MIDNIGHT...TEMPERATURES ALREADY FELL INTO THE UPPER 60S NORTH OF I-
64...WHILE THEY WERE STILL IN THE UPPER 70S IN PARTS OF SOUTHEASTERN
MISSOURI AND WESTERN KENTUCKY...A BIG CHANGE FROM YESTERDAY MORNING.

SOMEWHAT DRIER AIR...MOST NOTICEABLE IN SOUTHWESTERN INDIANA AND
ADJACENT AREAS...WILL NOT BE AROUND FOR LONG. THE FRONT THAT IS
SOUTH OF THE QUAD STATE REGION WILL MOVE BACK NORTHEAST AS A WARM
FRONT BY TONIGHT AS A MINOR LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM PASSES BY JUST TO
THE NORTH. DUE TO A WEAK RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT...NO
PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO OCCUR IN OUR AREA UNTIL EARLY
THURSDAY...WHEN THE AFOREMENTIONED SYSTEM DRAGS ANOTHER FRONTAL
BOUNDARY SOUTHWARD TOWARD OUR REGION. THURSDAY WILL BE ESPECIALLY
HOT AND HUMID AHEAD OF THE FRONT. BY THURSDAY NIGHT...SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE MOST COMMON IN THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE
REGION...AND LIKELY EVERYWHERE FRIDAY AND FRIDAY NIGHT AS AN AREA OF
LOW PRESSURE DEEPENS RIGHT OVER THE QUAD STATE REGION.
