REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
244 PM EDT THU MAR 26 2015

A COUPLE LINES OF SHOWERS MOVED THROUGH EASTERN KENTUCKY TODAY.
THE FIRST LINE WAS MOSTLY LIGHT PRECIPITATION...AND MOVED THROUGH
THE COAL FIELDS FROM AROUND SUNRISE TO MID MORNING. PRECIPITATION
TOTALS WERE A COUPLE HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH AT BEST. ANOTHER LINE
OF RAIN SHOWERS ENTERED EASTERN KENTUCKY DURING THE LATE MORNING
HOURS. THIS LINE MOVED SOUTHEAST THROUGH THE COAL FIELDS...AND
BROUGHT RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF AROUND A QUARTER OF AN INCH IN MOST
LOCATIONS.

SOME MILD TEMPERATURES WERE ON TAP THIS MORNING WITH 7 AM
READINGS RANGING FROM THE UPPER 40S IN COOLER SHELTERED
VALLEY...TO AROUND 60 DEGREES ELSEWHERE. CHILLY AIR WAS STARTING
TO FILTER INTO THE COAL FIELDS. AREAS NORTH OF THE MOUNTAIN
PARKWAY WERE IN THE 40S...WHILE TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE MIDDLE
AND UPPER 60S SOUTH OF THE HAL ROGERS AND CUMBERLAND PARKWAYS.
NORMAL LOWS FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR ARE NEAR 40 DEGREES WITH HIGHS
AROUND THE 60 DEGREE MARK.

LOOK FOR A COLD FRONT TO CONTINUE TO MOVE THROUGH THE COAL FIELDS
THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING. THE PRECIPITATION WILL END BUT
CHILLY AIR WILL ARRIVE...PUSHING THE MERCURY TO NEAR THE FREEZING
MARK OR LOWER. TEMPERATURES WILL ONLY REACH THE LOWER AND MIDDLE
40S FRIDAY...WITH A SMALL CHANCE OF RAIN SHOWERS. A SLIGHT CHANCE
OF RAIN OR SNOW SHOWERS WILL EXIST FRIDAY NIGHT AS TEMPERATURES
DROP INTO THE LOWER AND MIDDLE 20S.

CONTINUED ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY FOR THE FOURTH STRAIGHT DAY. THE
LONDON CORBIN AIRPORT LOGGED 84 DEGREES...WITH THE TEMPERATURE AT
THE JACKSON WEATHER OFFICE WARMING UP TO 81. IN ADDITION TO THE WARM
DAYTIME TEMPERATURES...THE EARLY MORNING LOWS AT BOTH STATIONS ALSO
SET NEW RECORDS FOR WARMTH. IN JACKSON...THE OVERNIGHT LOW WAS ONLY
65 DEGREES...WHILE IN LONDON...THE MERCURY ONLY DROPPED TO 58.
CLIMATE RECORDS FOR LONDON AND JACKSON DATE BACK TO 1954 AND 1981
RESPECTIVELY.
