Regional Weather Summary

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
302 PM CDT Sun Aug 31 2014
Abundant cloud cover along with scattered showers were seen this
morning as temperatures bottomed out in the lower 70s. Conditions
have improved greatly over all but portions of the Pennyrile region
where some pesky showers and clouds have prevented temperatures from
reaching 80 yet. Elsewhere partly sunny skies prevailed with mid
afternoon temperatures in the low to mid 80s.
For those that have outdoor holiday plans, Labor Day is looking like
a nice day in between storm systems with mostly sunny skies and
temperatures near 90 degrees. The next cold front will be on the
doorstep Monday night into Tuesday with showers and thunderstorms
likely during this time frame. The resulting cloud cover increase
from this system will dampen highs a bit to the mid to upper 80s for
Tuesday. Humidity levels will remain high with lows only falling
into the lower 70s throughout the week. The heat looks to return for
the latter portion of the work week with temperatures surging back
into the 90s for Thursday and Friday.
