FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR EASTERN KENTUCKY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
324 AM EDT WED AUG 27 2014

.DISCUSSION...

HIGH PRESSURE IS IN PLACE OVER EASTERN KENTUCKY AT BOTH THE SURFACE
AND ALOFT. A COLD FRONT WILL BE MOVING SOUTH DURING THE DAY TODAY.
THE FRONT WILL BE WEAKENING AS IT BUMPS UP AGAINST THE SURFACE AND
UPPER HIGHS. CURRENT THINKING IS THAT THERE WILL BE SOME
PRECIPITATION NORTH OF THE MOUNTAIN PARKWAY THIS AFTERNOON...HOWEVER
AS THE FRONT CONTINUES TO WEAKEN TONIGHT AS IT MOVES SOUTH...THE
PRECIPITATION WILL BE ENDING. ON THURSDAY...AS THE DIURNAL HEATING
GETS GOING...IT WILL GENERATE SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ALONG
THE REMNANTS OF THE FRONT...GENERALLY SOUTH OF THE MOUNTAIN PARKWAY
DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THE TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE IN
THE MID TO UPPER 80S TODAY AND THEN COOL OFF A LITTLE WITH THE FRONT
TOMORROW.
