REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY

252 PM EST MON MAR 2 2015

LIGHT RAIN AND A LITTLE BIT OF FREEZING PRECIPITATION WAS PRESENT
ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY THIS MORNING. THE FREEZING RAIN/DRIZZLE
WAS OF SHORT DURATION AROUND SUNRISE AND IN ISOLATED AREAS NEAR
AND NORTH OF THE MOUNTAIN PARKWAY. ELSEWHERE...TEMPERATURES WERE
MOSTLY ABOVE FREEZING...KEEPING THE PRECIPITATION IN LIQUID FORM.
BY MID AFTERNOON...THE LIGHT RAIN HAD MOVED OUT OF THE
COMMONWEALTH. PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS WERE GENERALLY BETWEEN A TENTH
TO A HALF AN INCH. GENERALLY DRY CONDITIONS AND PARTLY TO MOSTLY
SUNNY SKIES RULED FOR THE REST OF THE DAY.

7 AM TEMPERATURES VARIED FROM THE MIDDLE 20S TO THE MIDDLE 30S.
NORMAL LOWS FOR EARLY MARCH ARE IN THE LOWER TO MIDDLE 30S. AFTER
THE PRECIPITATION MOVED ON...AND SOME SUNSHINE PEEKED THROUGH THE
CLOUD COVER...THE MERCURY RECOVERED SOMEWHAT. MID AFTERNOON
TEMPERATURES WERE MOSTLY IN THE UPPER 30S THROUGH THE MIDDLE 40S.
TYPICAL HIGHS FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR ARE IN THE LOWER TO MIDDLE
50S.

LOOK FOR THE CHANCE OF A MIXED BAG OF WINTRY PRECIPITATION LATE
TONIGHT AS A FRONTAL BOUNDARY MOVES TOWARDS THE REGION. THE
PRECIPITATION WILL CHANGE TO ALL RAIN THANKS TO A WARM FRONT
PUSHING NORTH THROUGH THE COAL FIELDS TUESDAY MORNING. A STORM
SYSTEM WILL SLOWLY MOVE THROUGH THE REGION TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY...BRINGING WIDESPREAD RAIN...WHICH WILL BE HEAVY AT
TIMES. THIS COULD LEAD TO FLOODING THREATS ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY
THANKS TO SATURATED GROUND...SNOW MELT AND POSSIBLE RAINFALL
AMOUNTS OF 2 TO 3 INCHES. A COLD FRONT WILL PASS THROUGH THE AREA
LATE WEDNESDAY. THIS WILL BRING A CHANCE OF SNOW WEDNESDAY NIGHT
AND THURSDAY...WITH SIGNIFICANT ACCUMULATIONS POSSIBLE. STAY TUNED
TO YOUR FAVORITE LOCAL MEDIA OUTLET...NOAA WEATHER RADIO...OR LOG
IN TO WWW.WEATHER.GOV/JKL FOR MORE INFORMATION AND POSSIBLE
WATCHES AND WARNINGS ON THIS DEVELOPING EVENT.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...A MAJOR TORNADO OUTBREAK OCCURRED
IN THE OHIO VALLY IN 2012...AND AFFECTED PORTIONS OF THE COAL FIELDS.
SEVERAL STRONG TO DANGEROUS TORNADOES MOVED THE REGION...INCLUDING
THE FIRST TORNADO OF EF3 STRENGTH SINCE 1988. SOME OF THE HARDEST
HIT AREAS WERE SALYERSVILE AND WEST LIBERTY...ALTHOUGH A TOTAL OF 15
PEOPLE WERE KILLED IN 4 DIFFERENT COUNTIES ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY.
DAMAGE ESTIMATES WERE AT 150 MILLION DOLLARS ACROSS THE OHIO
VALLEY.
