Regional Weather Summary

AWUS83 KPAH 170900
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
400 AM CDT Wed Sep 17 2014
Skies cleared out over much of the region Tuesday evening, as high
pressure settled over the region. With clear and calm conditions
overnight, areas of dense fog were reported throughout southern
Illinois, and a few patches were reported over west Kentucky. An
upper level disturbance was spreading clouds back across southeast
Missouri, which prevented significant fog development there. By 4
AM, temperatures were generally in the middle and upper 40s, but
Poplar Bluff Missouri was a mild 55 under a cloudy sky.
A pair of upper-level disturbances will slide southeast and bring
chances of showers and thunderstorms to southeast Missouri and
adjacent portions of southern Illinois and west Kentucky today
through Thursday morning. The associated cloud cover will keep high
temperatures in the 70s both days, which is well below normal.
High pressure will build over the region Friday into Saturday, which
will lead to a nice warm up into the 80s by Saturday. A cold front
will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms to the entire
region Saturday night and Sunday. In its wake, cool, Canadian high
pressure will build across the area early next week.
