Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern Kentucky
National Weather Service Jackson KY
725 AM EDT Tue Oct 27 2020

.DISCUSSION...A nearby boundary will continue to result in pockets
of light rain/drizzle from low clouds for one more day. This will
lead to little mixing underneath a strong inversion aloft and high
boundary layer moisture content. For mid-week we will see
increasing chances of a soaking rain from Wednesday into
Thursday, as an approaching cold front interacts with the remains
of tropical system Zeta.
