NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
311 PM CST Mon Dec 15 2014
Several bands of rain showers passed across the Quad State area
today, bringing storm totals averaging from a quarter to a half of
an inch across the western half of the area. During the afternoon
hours, showers continue to move across western Kentucky and
southwest Indiana. Morning temperatures stayed in the mid 40s, but
locations in southeast Missouri and far western Kentucky reached the
low to mid 50s by 3 PM. Winds were generally from the south and
southeast at 5 to 10 mph.
Low pressure from the Central Plains will move northeastward toward
the Great Lakes on tonight and into Tuesday. Cooler air funnels in
behind this system for mid week through next weekend. This brings
high temperatures falling below normal into the mid 30s to low 40s
and lows down into the upper 20s most nights. After today, the next
chances for precipitation will be for rain on Wednesday night into
Thursday and for rain or snow for Friday into Saturday. Model
consistency is still lacking regarding the details and path, so
either rain or snow is possible for many locations.
