Record or Near Record Low Temperatures Observed on Mon the 13th

High pressure brought an unseasonably cold and dry airmass to the region along with light winds and clear or mostly clear skieson Sunday night allowing for temperatures to settle in the 30s in most locations. A couple of locations reported some light frost. Record low temperatures were set for the day at the Jackson Julian Carroll Airport near Jackson in Breathitt County as well as the London Corbin Airport in Laurel County. Record lows were also set or tied at the Cooperative Observing Sites in Monticello, Mount Vernon, Paintsville,  and Somerset.
