WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
333 AM CDT MON JUL 27 2015

A COMPLEX OF THUNDERSTORMS HELD TOGETHER AS IT PUSHED SOUTHEAST
THROUGH MUCH OF THE QUAD STATE REGION ON SUNDAY. THE RAIN AND CLOUDS
HELPED TO KEEP TEMPERATURES ABOUT 5 DEGREES LOWER THAN SATURDAYS
READINGS. HIGHS WERE GENERALLY IN THE MID TO UPPER 80S. WARM AND
MUGGY CONDITIONS PREVAILED INTO SUNDAY NIGHT AS MORE SCATTERED
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY MOVED INTO NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE AREA.
EARLY THIS MONDAY MORNING...TEMPERATURES RANGED FROM THE LOWER TO
MID 70S WITH LIGHT AND VARIABLE WINDS.

HOT AND HUMID CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL THROUGH WEDNESDAY AS AN UPPER
LEVEL RIDGE REMAINS ANCHORED OVER THE SOUTHERN UNITED STATES. SMALL
CHANCES FOR THUNDERSTORMS ARE DIFFICULT TO RULE OUT THROUGH THE
PERIOD AS WEAK POCKETS OF ENERGY ROTATE AROUND THE PERIPHERY OF THE
UPPER LEVEL RIDGE. HIGH TEMPERATURES ARE FORECAST TO TOP 90 DEGREES
TODAY...THEN THE LOWER TO MID 90S TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. THIS WILL
RESULT IN PEAK HEAT INDICES OF AT LEAST 100 TO 105 DEGREES AND
LOCALLY HIGHER EACH AFTERNOON.

THANKFULLY...SOME RELIEF FROM THE HEAT IS ON THE WAY LATER IN THE
WEEK. A COLD FRONT IS FORECAST TO MOVE SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE AREA
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THE APPROACH OF THIS FRONT WILL
BRING A BETTER CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ON WEDNESDAY.
BEHIND THE FRONT...MILDER AND MUCH DRIER AIR WILL TAKE HOLD AS HIGH
PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE AREA. IN FACT...HIGHS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY
ARE FORECAST TO REACH ONLY THE MID TO UPPER 80S.
