Eastern Kentucky Weather

Nice & Comfy

Daytime highs have been absolutely dreamy! This forecast should be one that you see in the fall... but that is not the case!

I really don't see the big time heat building back in for at least a week. As we all know... the heat and humidity will return! Let's face it... we are just beginning July and it has to happen!

Other than the pattern remaining on the cool side there really isn't anything exciting going on in the forecast. Though some of the scattered showers & storms that fired off late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning did pack a big time punch!

We can also throw this into the mix.

...RECORD MINIMUM HIGH TEMPERATURE SET AT JACKSON KY...

THE HIGH TEMPERATURE AT THE JACKSON WEATHER OFFICE WAS 75 DEGREES.
THIS BREAKS THE PREVIOUS MINIMUM HIGH TEMPERATURE RECORD OF 76
DEGREES SET BACK IN 1982 AND 2003.

WEATHER RECORDS FOR THE JACKSON WEATHER OFFICE DATE BACK TO 1981.
...RECORD MINIMUM HIGH TEMPERATURE SET AT JACKSON KY...

 

The clouds will remain on the thick side Thursday. This will probably prevent temps from getting out of control. I wouldn't be surprised if highs were stuck in the 70s on Thursday afternoon. I also wouldn't be surprised if an isolated shower or storm fired up again sometime on Thursday.

The holiday weekend is nearly here and I am seeing conflicting forecasts. My early thoughts kept the rain away on Saturday... but since then the data has pushed the rain in here a little quicker. That means showers & storms could be here for the 4th. I'll keep watching this system develop and keep you updated right here!
