WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
349 AM CDT Sun Aug 31 2014

Yesterday, after showers and thunderstorms developed and remained in
southeastern Missouri and parts of southern Illinois for a while,
widespread light rain and embedded showers and thunderstorms became
more common across western Kentucky by afternoon. One particular
storm cluster kept developing over parts of Ballard and McCracken
counties early in the afternoon, resulting in a downpour of in
excess of 4 inches! Another area just north of the Land Between the
Lakes received in excess of 2 inches of rainfall. Elsewhere,
rainfall amounts were under an inch during the afternoon. In the
evening, light shower activity mainly over the Pennyrile region and
southwestern Indiana quickly diminished from the west, but returned
after midnight.

Peak afternoon temperatures were quite variable, ranging from the
middle 70s to the lower 80s, with all the precipitation and clouds
around. This morning, temperatures had dropped into the lower half
of the 70s. The clouds and steady south light wind prevented
significant fog so far.

An upper level impulse will move eastward away from the Quad State
Region today, which means drier conditions can be expected through
most of Labor Day, including mostly clear to partly cloudy skies. A
cold front will move into the region early Tuesday, bringing showers
and thunderstorms back into the forecast. Temperatures Monday and
Tuesday will be on the warm side, especially during the night.
