REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
314 PM EDT THU JUL 31 2014

A CHILLY AND BEAUTIFUL MORNING WAS EXPERIENCED ACROSS EAST KENTUCKY.
MORNING LOWS WERE IN THE 50S UNDER MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES...WHILE SOME
DENSE FOG FILLED THE RIVER VALLEYS. SUMMER SUNSHINE PUSHED NOONTIME
TEMPERATURES INTO THE MID 70S IN MOST LOCATIONS WILE SKIES REMAINED
MOSTLY SUNNY. AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES ROSE INTO THE LOWER 80S AND
REMAINED A FEW DEGREES BELOW SEASONAL NORMALS. THIS BOUT OF COOL
WEATHER IS DUE TO HIGH PRESSURE EXTENDING FROM THE MID ATLANTIC
SEABOARD TO THE CENTRAL PLAINS. THE HIGH PRESSURE WILL SLOWLY LOSE
ITS CONTROL OVER OUR WEATHER.

CONDITIONS LOOK TO REMAIN MOSTLY DRY INTO THE LATE EVENING HOURS...
THOUGH A FEW SCATTERED SHOWERS WILL BE POSSIBLE LATER IN THE NIGHT.
ANOTHER SLIGHTLY COOLER THAN NORMAL NIGHT CAN BE EXPECTED. LOWS
TONIGHT WILL SLIP INTO THE UPPER 50S AND LOWER 60S WITH HIGHS
TOMORROW AROUND 80 DEGREES. A CHANCE OF RAIN WILL EXIST ACROSS PARTS
OF EASTERN KENTUCKY FRIDAY MORNING. A BETTER CHANCE FOR MORE WIDESPREAD
ACTIVITY CAN BE EXPECTED FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING AS A WEATHER
DISTURBANCE MOVES INTO THE AREA. FRIDAY AND SATURDAY STILL LOOK TO
HOLD THE BEST CHANCES FOR RAIN WITH SOME DRYING TAKING PLACE ON
SUNDAY.

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...JULY 2014 WILL CERTAINLY GO DOWN IN
THE RECORD BOOKS AS A COOL ONE. DAYTIME HIGHS TODAY WILL LIKELY REACH
THE LOW 80S...ENDING A 4 DAY CONSECUTIVE RUN OF DAYTIME HIGHS BELOW
80 DEGREES. FROM THE 27TH THROUGH THE 30TH JACKSON RECORDED HIGHS IN
THE 70S. THIS 4 DAY RUN AT THE END OF THE MONTH HAS ONLY BEEN MATCHED
ONE TIME...AND THAT WAS JULY OF 2013. THE LAST 5 DAYS OF JULY 2013
ENDED WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES ONLY IN THE 70S. JULY 2014 WAS COOL THE
ENTIRE MONTH WITH 13 DAYS IN WHICH THE HIGH TEMPERATURES DID NOT
REACH 80 DEGREES. FOR COMPARISON...JULY 2013 RECORDED 11 DAYS WITH
DAYTIME HIGHS LESS THAN 80 DEGREES. CLIMATE RECORDS FOR JACKSON DATE
BACK TO 1981 RESPECTIVELY.
