300 AM CDT FRI OCT 2 2015
Partly to mostly cloudy skies continued to hug parts of West
Kentucky and Southwest Indiana through the evening and overnight
hours into Friday morning. A lesser coverage of clouds were noted
across parts of Southeast Missouri and Southern Illinois.
The clouds had some impact on afternoon highs across the Quad
State region on Thursday. Owensboro Kentucky and Evansville
Indiana, both impacted by more clouds, had high temperatures of 68
and 69 degrees, respectively. Cape Girardeau Missouri and Paducah
Kentucky, with a little less cloud cover, topped out at 72 degrees
Overnight, however, the light northerly winds had a greater impact
than the clouds across the region, keeping most temperatures in
the upper 50s to near 60 degrees.
The clouds dotting part of the Quad State region overnight were
associated with an upper level low, centered near the junction of
Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee.
Until this area of low pressure slowly wobbles its way toward
northern Florida and Southern Georgia on Saturday, it will bring
enough moisture to the Quad State region to produce a small chance
for showers over parts of West Kentucky and Southwest Indiana.
By Sunday, high pressure building northward from the Southern
Plains will overspread the region and dominate the weather for
most of next week. A small chance for showers may be possible late
next week, but there remains some doubt.
Temperatures will remain below normal through the weekend, but
riese back to normal and even slightly above normal for most of
