WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
311 PM CDT WED JUN 24 2015

COOLER TEMPERATURES GREETED ALL BUT THE SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE
AREA THIS MORNING AS A COLD FRONT WAS POSITIONED ACROSS OUR FAR
SOUTH. READINGS RANGED FROM 63 AT MOUNT VERNON, IL TO 75 AT POPLAR
BLUFF. PARTLY TO MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES HAVE BEEN SEEN TODAY WITH
TEMPERATURES TOPPING OUT IN THE LOW 80S ALONG THE I-64 CORRIDOR TO
THE LOW 90S ALONG OUR SOUTHERN TIER OF COUNTIES IN SOUTHEAST
MISSOURI. DRIER AIR WITH DEWPOINTS ONLY IN THE LOW 60S HAVE MADE IT
INTO NORTHERN SECTIONS WHILE SOUPY CONDITIONS REMAIN OVER THE
SOUTHERN THIRD. MOSTLY DRY CONDITIONS HAVE BEEN SEEN WITH THE
EXCEPTION BEING A FEW ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THAT HAVE
FORMED OVER A PORTION OF SOUTHEAST MISSOURI.

THE FRONT THAT IS SOUTH OF THE QUAD STATE REGION WILL MOVE BACK
NORTHEAST AS A WARM FRONT BY TONIGHT AS A MINOR LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM
PASSES BY JUST TO THE NORTH. DUE TO A WEAK RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE
ALOFT...LITTLE TO NO PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO OCCUR IN OUR AREA
UNTIL LATER THURSDAY...WHEN THE AFOREMENTIONED SYSTEM DRAGS ANOTHER
FRONTAL BOUNDARY SOUTHWARD TOWARD OUR REGION. THURSDAY WILL BE
ESPECIALLY HOT AND HUMID AHEAD OF THE FRONT WITH TEMPERATURES IN THE
MID 90S COMBINED WITH HIGH HUMIDITY TO PRODUCE HEAT INDICES OF 100
TO 105. BY THURSDAY NIGHT...SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE MOST
COMMON IN THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE REGION...AND LIKELY EVERYWHERE
FRIDAY AND FRIDAY NIGHT AS AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE DEEPENS RIGHT
OVER THE QUAD STATE REGION. HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE A THREAT ALONG
WITH A LOW CHANCE OF SEVERE STORMS. COOLER AND DRIER AIR WORKS IN
FOR THE WEEKEND WITH HIGHS NEAR 80 AND LOWS NEAR 60 WITH LOWER
HUMIDITY.
