NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
344 AM CDT Sun Jul 27 2014
An area of showers and thunderstorms moved across parts of
southern IL, southwest IN and northern KY during the evening
hours, and produced very heavy rainfall, frequent lightning and
gusty winds at times. Not soon after this area of thunderstorms
moved east of the area, more thunderstorms began developing over
portions of southwest IN. These storms also produced torrential
downpours and lots of lightning. This activity moved off to the
east. Temperatures were very mild and were mainly in the 70s but
there were a few locations that were still in the lower 80s at 300
am. Winds were out of the southwest at 5 to 10 mph.
Hot and humid conditions will continue today, with highs in the
lower to mid 90s with heat index values running in the 100 to 105
degree range. A cold front is slated to move across the area today
and provide a focus for some scattered thunderstorms, some of
which could be strong to severe.
The threat for storms will end tonight as the front clears the
area. Much cooler and drier air will filter into the region. We
will drop back down into the lower 80s early in the week, with
some locales only reaching the upper 70s. Temperatures will
gradually moderate into mid 80s by the end of the week, and that
is also when rain chances will start to pick up.
