NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
241 PM CDT TUE JUN 23 2015

SOME HIGH CLOUDS WERE NOTICED OVER THE AREA OVERNIGHT INTO THIS
MORNING WHICH HELPED KEEP TEMPERATURE UP A FEW DEGREES WITH LOWS
ONLY FALLING INTO THE UPPER 70S AT MOST LOCATIONS. LUCKILY THERE HAS
BEEN QUITE A BIT OF CLOUD COVER ACROSS A GOOD CHUNK OF THE AREA
DURING THE LATE MORNING AND INTO THE AFTERNOON HOURS WHICH HAS
HELPED TEMPERATURES FROM GETTING TOO OUT OF CONTROL. READINGS AS OF
2PM ARE IN UPPER 80S TO LOWER 90S WITH SLIGHTLY COOLER READINGS UP
NEAR THE I-64 CORRIDOR FAR ENOUGH BEHIND THE COLD FRONT. MOISTURE
HAS REALLY POOLED ALONG AND AHEAD OF THIS FRONT WITH DEWPOINTS IN
THE MID 70S RESULTING IN HEAT INDICES OF 100 TO 105 ACROSS THE
SOUTHERN HALF OF THE REGION. THE CLOUD COVER HAS CAPPED THE
ATMOSPHERE WHICH HAS RESULTED IN SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT
BEING SUBDUED.

WITH THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY AROUND SOME ISOLATED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE THROUGH THIS EVENING ACROSS THE
SOUTHERN PART OF THE AREA. MOST LOCATIONS SHOULD BE DRY ON WEDNESDAY
AND THURSDAY AS AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE BUILDS IN CAUSING THE HEAT AND
HUMIDITY TO REMAIN IN PLACE. THURSDAY MIGHT BE THE HOTTEST DAY OF
THE WEEK WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE MID 90S AND HEAT INDICES
NEARING 105. A COLD FRONT APPROACHES THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY
NIGHT WITH PRECIPITATION CHANCES RAMPING UP WITH THE GREATEST
