NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
253 PM CDT SUN Apr 13 2014
Skies were partly cloudy for much of the night, but by sunrise
clouds were on the increase. Sunrise temperatures were rather mild
ranging from the middle to upper 60s. During the day, clouds
continued to increase from west to east ahead of an approaching storm
system. A few showers were also noted this afternoon across the
Ozark region of Southeast Missouri. Winds were southwest at 10 to 20
mph with gusts up to 30 mph reported. Temperatures at 245 pm ranged
from the lower 70s at Cape Girardeau and Carbondale to the middle
70s at Paducah and Evansville to the upper 70s at Hopkinsville.
High pressure has moved off to the east and it has given way to an
approaching storm system and its associated cold front. Showers and
thunderstorms will overspread the Quad State Region overnight and
remain over the area for much of Monday. Some lingering post frontal
rain or drizzle will be possible during the evening hours on Monday.
Temperatures in the seventies and fifties will be a distant memory
as we drop back into the fifties and thirties respectively on
Tuesday and Wednesday. Some patchy frost is not out of the question
Tuesday morning. The dry weather will be short lived as yet another
system brings a chance of rain back to the forecast on Friday. The
good news is temperatures will warm slightly with highs finishing
out the week in the 60s and lows in the 40s.
