UNDER CLEAR SKIES...FROSTY CONDITIONS WERE PRESENT ACROSS EASTERN
KENTUCKY THIS MORNING. 7 AM TEMPERATURES RANGED FROM THE LOWER TO
UPPER 20S. THE JACKSON WEATHER OFFICE SHATTERED THE MINIMUM
TEMPERATURE RECORD TODAY WITH A LOW OF 27 DEGREES. NORMAL LOWS FOR
THE MIDDLE OF APRIL ARE IN THE MIDDLE 40S. PLENTIFUL MORNING SUNSHINE

MOSTLY IN THE UPPER 40S AND LOWER 50S. TYPICAL HIGHS FOR THIS TIME OF

ANOTHER CHILLY NIGHT IS EXPECTED TONIGHT WITH SOME LOCATIONS SEEING

FRIDAY. LOWS WILL BE SLIGHTLY WARMER THURSDAY NIGHT...MOSTLY IN THE
LOWER TO MIDDLE 30S...ALTHOUGH SOME OF THE CHILLIER VALLEY LOCATIONS
WILL SETTLE INTO THE UPPER 20S.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 2002...UNSEASONABLY WARM AIR
HELPED SEND THE MERCURY INTO THE MIDDLE 80S...GOOD ENOUGH FOR
ESTABLISHING THE RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURES BOTH AT THE JACKSON WEATHER
OFFICE AND THE LONDON CORBIN AIRPORT. JACKSON HAD A HIGH OF 87
DEGREES...WHILE THE MERCURY PEAKED AT 86 DEGREES AT LONDON.

REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
307 PM EDT MON APR 14 2014

CLOUDY SKIES AND WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS WERE PRESENT ACROSS EASTERN
KENTUCKY THIS MORNING. RAINFALL AMOUNTS WERE MOSTLY LIGHT...WITH
TOTALS OF A COUPLE HUNDREDTHS AT BEST. THE PRECIPITATION EXITED THE
COMMONWEALTH BY NOONTIME. CLOUDY SKIES PREVAILED INTO THE AFTERNOON
HOURS AS WELL.

MILD CONDITIONS WERE ON TAP THROUGHOUT THE COAL FIELDS THIS MORNING.
7 AM TEMPERATURES MOSTLY VARIED FROM THE MIDDLE 60S TO THE LOWER 70S.
THE MERCURY DID NOT MOVE ALL THAT MUCH THROUGHOUT THE DAY...WITH MID
AFTERNOON READINGS GENERALLY IN THE UPPER 60S AND LOWER 70S. NORMAL
LOWS FOR THE MIDDLE OF APRIL ARE IN THE MIDDLE 40S...WITH HIGHS
TYPICALLY IN THE UPPER 60S.

LOOK FOR UNSETTLED WEATHER IN THE FORM OF RAIN SHOWERS AND A FEW
THUNDERSTORMS TONIGHT AS A COLD FRONT MOVES INTO THE REGION. CHILLY
AIR BEHIND THE FRONT WILL OVERTAKE THE PRECIPITATION AND CREATE A
RAIN SNOW MIX AND CHANGE TO ALL SNOW LATE TONIGHT AND EARLY TUESDAY.
NO ACCUMULATION IS ANTICIPATED ALTHOUGH AN INCH OR SO IS POSSIBLE
AT THE HIGHER LOCATIONS ALONG THE VIRGINIA BORDER. THE COLD AIR WILL
SETTLE INTO THE REGION TUESDAY...WITH HIGHS STRUGGLING INTO THE
UPPER 30S TO AROUND 40 DEGREES. A HARD FREEZE IS EXPECTED TUESDAY
NIGHT WITH LOWS IN THE LOWER AND MIDDLE 20S.

ON THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 2007...A PERIOD OF HEAVY
RAINFALL BEGAN ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY AND LASTED INTO THE MORNING
OF THE 15TH. DURING A 24 HOUR PERIOD...ROUGHLY 1.5 TO 3.5 INCHES OF
RAIN FELL...CAUSING FLOODING PROBLEMS FOR MANY AREAS. THE HARDEST HIT
LOCATIONS WERE IN PIKE...FLOYD...AND MARTIN COUNTIES. FLOOD WATERS
DID NOT RECEDE UNTIL APRIL 17TH AND IT WAS DETERMINED THAT 95 HOMES
WERE EITHER DAMAGED OR DESTROYED.

ALSO...IN 1912...CLEAR AND CALM WEATHER WAS PARTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR
THE R.M.S. TITANIC STRIKING AN ICEBERG IN THE NORTH ATLANTIC OCEAN.
THE EXCEPTIONALLY CALM WATER MADE ICEBERGS HARDER TO SEE DUE TO A
LACK OF BREAKING WATER AT THE BASE OF THE LARGE CHUNK OF ICE. THE
SHIP STRUCK THE ICEBERG AROUND 11:40 PM...BEFORE SINKING LESS THAN 3
HOURS LATER ON THE MORNING OF THE 15TH. TWO OF THE 2227 PEOPLE ON
BOARD WERE FROM KENTUCKY.
