Regional Weather Summary

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
431 AM CST Tue Dec 16 2014
Several bands of rain showers passed across the Quad State area
Monday and Monday evening as a low pressure system moved through. A
few thunderstorms even developed during the late afternoon and early
evening. High temperatures in the 50s occurred during the evening
hours just before the cold front made passage. Early this Tuesday
morning, much of the shower activity had exited to the east of the
area. However, plenty of clouds and some patchy drizzle lingered.
Early morning temperatures ranged through the mid and upper 40s.
Winds were westerly at 10 to 15 mph with some gusts to 20 mph.
The low pressure system that brought the rain to start the week will
move into the Great Lakes region today. In the wake of this low and
its associated cold front, colder temperatures are in the offing
today as low clouds persist. Partial clearing is possible Wednesday
before the next weather system brings a chance of snow, possibly
mixed with rain, Wednesday night into Thursday. The active pattern
will continue into late week with yet another chance of rain and
snow late Friday through early Saturday. Light accumulations are
possible with both events, but it is too soon to narrow down exactly
where or how much.
