NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
348 AM CDT Tue Mar 11 2014
With plenty of sunshine and a warm southerly breeze, the work week
started off warm with temperatures in the 60s Monday afternoon.
Mainly clear skies continued with the southerly breeze overnight. As
a result, temperatures early this Tuesday morning were quite mild,
ranging from the upper 40s to lower 50s.
The gradient between departing high pressure over the Southeast and
developing low pressure over the Central Plains will result in warm
and breezy conditions today. With ample sunshine and gusty south
winds, temperatures are forecast to reach the lower 70s this
afternoon. As the low and a strong cold front pass through the Quad
State region tonight, a good chance of showers and thunderstorms
will result tonight and early Wednesday.
Behind the cold front, dry and sharply colder air will return on
Wednesday as temperatures fall into the upper 30s and lower 40s
through the day on strong northwest winds. Unseasonably cold weather
will continue into Thursday, but a gradual warming trend is expected
late in the week as mainly dry weather prevails under the influence
of high pressure. Our next chance of rain arrives over the weekend.
