Summer-like days on the way to area

By Leanne Fuller lfuller@paducahsun.com

Spring will feel a lot like summer in the days just ahead. Temperatures in the Paducah area are expected to rise into the 80s on Sunday and remain there through the week with precipitation unlikely.

Paducah National Weather Service Meteorologist Christine Wielgos said the high would be in the 70s today with a low in the 50s tonight.

For Sunday, Wielgos predicted temperatures would warm into the 80s with highs near 85 degrees most of the week. She said nighttime lows would likely increase from the upper 50s to the mid-60s as the week goes on.  

Normal highs for this time of year are in the mid-70s. 

While the forecast highs are about 10 degrees above average, Wielgos said in spring it is not unusual to have some 80-degree days along with some 50-degree days. The meteorologist also noted that Paducah saw three 80-degree days in April.

As for rain - which west Kentucky recently experienced its fair share of - Wielgos said if any falls before the end of the week "it would be very isolated."
