Eastern Kentucky Weather

The Cool Temps

Many locations started off Tuesday in the 40s. The next couple of mornings will likely feature similar temps.

For the first time since May 20th temps dipped into the 40s... now that's according to NWS Jackson data. London's last run in the 40s was also on the 20th. So we have had several months of lows in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. We are officially turning the corner and heading into a period where temps like these will become more often.

The lows you see above are from some of the mesonet sites throughout Kentucky.

Here are some other low from around the region.

  • BARBOURVILLE:  45 
  • BEATTYVILLE :  45 
  • BUCKHORN LAKE:  46
  • BAXTER:   44
  • CARR CREEK:  45
  • CAVE RUN LAKE:  50
  • CLOSPLINT:  44
  • CRESSY: 49
  • HAZARD:  50
  • ISLAND CITY:   44
  • INEZ:  45
  • NWS JACKSON:  47
  • LONDON CORBIN APT:   49
  • MONTICELLO:  47
  • MOUNT VERNON:   48
  • PAINTSVILLE 1E:  47
  • SALYERSVILLE:   46
  • SKYLINE:   46
  • SOMERSET  50

Forecast time... there will be some debate over out highs these next few days. Some data might even suggest that we'll hit the 70s while other data will keep us in the 60s. I am going with the 60s! The debate comes into play with an approaching area of high pressure and a storm system that will swing towards KY Thursday. The norm for this setup will bring in southerly winds. It will! This will probably push highs into the upper 60s. If any location slips into the 70s it will be mainly across southern KY. The farther northeast you go the cooler you will find temps.

That same storm system will arrive here on Friday and will spread showers & storms into our region! This could mean a wet football Friday night!
