Regional Weather Summary
Issued by NWS Paducah, KY

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
220 PM CST MON FEB 8 2016
Winds shifted to the northwest as the surface low passed to our
northeast early Monday. By mid day, winds were gusting over 20 mph
in some locations. Daytime temperatures were in the 30s as cold
Canadian air pushed into the Quad State area, and skies were cloudy
throughout the day as light snow showers passed through.
Chances of light snow showers continue through Tuesday east of the
Mississippi River as an upper level disturbance passes through. By
the time snow showers end Tuesday, some areas could see a dusting to
an inch or so of snow.
As the main upper level trough stalls over the Northeast, it ushers
in dry cold Canadian air for the rest of the week. Temperatures will
likely remain below freezing until at least Thursday afternoon or
Friday with frigid morning low temperatures in the single digits to
teens. After a slight warm up to nearly 40 degrees during the day
Friday, a second blast of arctic air returns for next weekend.
