Storms remain part of forecast

By Leanne Fuller lfuller@paducahsun.com

Showers drenched downtown Paducah Tuesday afternoon, and an area meteorologist said chances linger for more showers and storms through next Tuesday.

Paducah National Weather Service meteorologist Robin Smith said the chance of showers and thunderstorms is between 20 and 50 percent through Tuesday, with afternoon highs in the mid- to upper 80s and lows in the mid-60s.

While the meteorologist said the Weather Service only measured 0.09 inches of rain by about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the airport, downtown Paducah and other areas to the east - including portions of southeast Missouri - experienced heavier rains.

Smith said there are chances for showers or storms during the day today and during the day Thursday and Friday, most of which would likely begin mid- afternoon and continue into early evening.

"The storms that we would receive Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be very similar to what we received (downtown) today ... to include gusty winds, small hail and brief periods of torrential rain," Smith said.

Smith said severe weather is not out of the question, but that the Paducah area was not in an area of severe weather risk at that time.

"If we did have severe weather, the primary threat would be 1 inch hail and winds to 60 mph, if we had any at all," Smith said.
