Regional Weather Summary
Issued by NWS Paducah, KY
AWUS83 KPAH 291147 CCA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
510 AM CDT Tue Jul 29 2014
Noticeably cooler and drier spread across the Quad State region
Monday afternoon and evening. Afternoon highs at most locations
were at least ten degrees cooler than those reported on Sunday.
Paducah Kentucky and Poplar Bluff Missouri were the warmest, with
highs reaching 86 degrees. Owensboro Kentucky and Evansville Indiana
were the coolest, relatively speaking, with high temperatures topping
out at 80 degrees.
By 5 am CDT, overnight temperatures had dropped into the middle
50s and lower 60s, which is below normal for this time of year.
For Paducah Kentucky, the temperature before 5 am had fallen to 56
degrees, tying the record low for this date. We will know before
daybreak whether a new record low is set or not.
The below normal temperatures and relatively dry air will linger
across the Quad State region through the upcoming weekend. Highs will
remain in the lower and middle 80s, given the flow of air dropping
down from Central Canada. A persistent closed low over eastern
Canada is the dominant weather system for the Northeast quarter of
the nation, and will keep the local region in a cooler northwest
flow at the surface and aloft.
A small chance of showers and thunderstorms will be possible for
Friday and Saturday, but most locations will likely not see any
rain at all this week.
