Cool weather to continue

By Leanne Fuller lfuller@paducahsun.con

Tuesday's reprieve from the sweltering summer heat will likely continue through the end of the week, according to the local office of the National Weather Service.

Paducah National Weather Service meteorological technician Dave Purdy said highs in the upper 70s are predicted through Friday, with conditions representing "almost a duplicate" of Tuesday.

Purdy said low temperatures in the mid-50s are predicted for tonight. Because the record low temperature recorded in Paducah on July 16 was set in 1967 at 56 degrees, Purdy said "that gives us a chance to break the record." Thursday's low is expected to be in the lower 60s and Friday's low is expected to be in the mid-60s.

"The low comes up, but the high is staying the same for a few days," Purdy noted. "The average temperature will rise, but you probably won't notice it because the high won't change very much."

A 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms is predicted for Friday, but Purdy said the chance of precipitation decreases to 30 percent on Saturday, when the high temperature is forecast to be in the lower 80s.

"It's just unusually nice," Purdy said of the unseasonable conditions, "So it's hard to complain about anything."
