Regional Weather Summary
Issued by NWS Paducah, KY
AWUS83 KPAH 011010
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
410 AM CST MON FEB 1 2016
At early morning scattered showers were noted over the eastern
sections of the quad state region. Temperatures ranged from the
lower 40s north to around 50 near the Kentucky/Tennessee border.
Winds were generally out of the north at 5 to 10 mph.
Showers over the eastern sections of the region will end this
morning in the wake of a frontal passage. After a very brief
respite, a strong storm system will lift rapidly northeast out of
the Rockies Monday afternoon making it to the Great Lakes region
by Tuesday evening. In advance of this system, warm, moist, and
unstable air will be pulled across the region setting the stage
for showers and strong to severe thunderstorms on Tuesday. The
activity is expected to move across the quad state as a solid line
of storms during the afternoon hours with the primary threat being
damaging winds. The presence of deep layer wind shear may allow
for an embedded tornadic storm or two.
In the wake of this system, the rest of the week is expected to be
dry with near normal temperatures.
