REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
413 PM EDT SUN AUG 31 2014

ABOVE NORMAL MORNING TEMPERATURES AND LIGHT RAIN WAS EXPERIENCED
ACROSS EAST KENTUCKY DURING THE LAST SUNRISE OF AUGUST 2014. MORNING
LOWS IN MOST AREAS WERE IN THE UPPER 60S AND LOW 70S...AND ABOUT 5
TO 8 DEGREES ABOVE THE NORMAL. JUST ABOUT EVERYONE REPORTED RAINFALL
THIS MORNING...WITH THE HEAVIEST RAIN FALLING IN ALONG THE
INTERSTATE 75 CORRIDOR SOUTH OF THE HAL ROGERS PARKWAY. RAINFALL
TOTALS IN THE FAR EAST AVERAGED A FEW TENTHS OF AN INCH AND APPROACHED
THE 2 INCH MARK IN LAUREL AND MCCREARY COUNTIES. A TRAINED SPOTTER...
ONE HALF MILE EAST OF WHITLEY CITY REPORTED A RAINFALL TOTAL OF 2.84
INCHES. MOST OF IT FELL BETWEEN 930 PM AND MIDNIGHT LAST NIGHT. A
FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR A LARGE PORTION OF EASTERN
KENTUCKY INTO THE EVENING.

SINCE MIDNIGHT...RAIN HAS CONTINUED TO MOVE INTO EASTERN KENTUCKY AND
KEPT TEMPERATURES NEARLY STEADY. THE HEAVIEST RAIN TODAY OCCURRED IN
AREAS OF SOUTH CENTRAL KENTUCKY WHERE JUST OVER AN INCH FELL. CLOUD
COVER AND RAINFALL LIMITED HIGHS INTO THE LOW 70S FOR MOST
LOCATIONS.

REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
316 PM EDT FRI AUG 29 2014

SOME FOGGY CONDITIONS WITH TEMPERATURES IN THE 60S WERE PRESENT
ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY THIS MORNING. MANY LOCATIONS REPORTED
VISIBILITIES OF A HALF MILE OR LESS IN HEAVY FOG AT TIMES AROUND
SUNRISE. THE FOG DISSIPATED DURING THE MID MORNING. 7 AM TEMPERATURES
RANGED FROM THE LOWER TO UPPER 60S. NORMAL LOWS FOR LATE AUGUST ARE
IN THE MIDDLE 60S. BY NOONTIME...SKIES WERE MOSTLY SUNNY TO SUNNY
WITH TEMPERATURES IN THE LOWER AND MIDDLE 80S.

HOT CONDITIONS WERE ON TAP THIS AFTERNOON THROUGHOUT THE COAL FIELDS.
UNDER PLENTIFUL SUNSHINE...MID AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE
MIDDLE 80S TO AROUND 90 DEGREES. HIGH HUMIDITIES CREATED HEAT
INDICES IN THE LOWER AND MIDDLE 90S AT TIMES. TYPICAL HIGHS FOR THIS
TIME OF YEAR ARE IN THE MIDDLE 80S.

A WARM FRONT WILL LIFT NORTH ACROSS THE AREA TONIGHT...TRIGGERING A
FEW SHOWERS AND STORMS. SOUTHWEST WINDS BEHIND THE WARM FRONT WILL
BRING WARM AND HUMID CONDITIONS TO THE AREA THROUGH THE HOLIDAY
WEEKEND. THE INCREASED HUMIDITY COULD TRIGGER A FEW MORE SHOWERS AND
STORMS SATURDAY AFTERNOON. A STRONG UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL
PASS ACROSS THE REGION LATE SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY...BRINGING
THE BEST CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND STORMS THIS WEEKEND. THIS SYSTEM
WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL AND
POSSIBLY CREATE SOME FLOODING CONCERNS ON SUNDAY. ACTIVE WEATHER IS
EXPECTED FOR LABOR DAY AS WELL.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 2005...HURRICANE KATRINA MADE
LANDFALL IN PLAQUEMINES PARISH IN SOUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA.
MEANWHILE...CLOSER TO HOME...IN 2006...SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS MOVED
ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY...DOWNING TREES AND CAUSING FLASH FLOODING
IN MCCREARY AND WHITLEY COUNTIES. WILLIAMSBURG WAS FLOODED TO THE
POINT WHERE AN INDIVIDUAL HAD TO BE RESCUED FROM THE FLOOD.
