Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Paducah KY
406 AM CDT FRI MAY 20 2016

The majority of the Quad State region had clear skies yesterday
afternoon. However, there was some cumulus build-up in easternmost
reaches of the Pennyrile region, and the beginnings of thin cirrus
clouds moving in from the west, eventually thickening quite a bit
over southeastern Missouri. A northeast breeze continued yesterday,
and highs finally reached the lower 70s almost everywhere. Late last
evening, as skies became overcast, light rainfall began to move in
west of the Mississippi River. The precipitation will continue to
move northeastward across the rest of the region this morning.

The rainfall may break up into more of a showery pattern later this
morning as an upper level trough approaches the Quad State region
from the west. Rainfall should linger in easternmost parts of the
Pennyrile region and southwestern Indiana at least through this
afternoon. A few lightning strikes are possible in the southern
Pennyrile region of Kentucky today. A diminishing chance of showers
will linger during the evening hours in the eastern half of the area
as the upper level system continues to move eastward.

A sharp ridge of high pressure is forecast to develop across the
area this weekend. This will provide a few days of dry clear
weather, with highs finally warming to around 80 and lows remaining
in the 50s. Winds will be out of the north for most of the weekend.
