Cool! July to make mild exit

By Leanne Fuller lfuller@paducahsun.com

The Paducah area, which enjoyed an unusually cool stretch earlier this month, is catching another break from summer heat this week.

David Humphrey, lead forecaster with the National Weather Service in Paducah, said the area is expected to see high temperatures in the low 80s today and Wednesday coupled with lows in the mid-50s. Beginning Thursday, highs in the mid-80s are predicted through Sunday.

Those temperatures aren't quite as low as the previous patch of cooler weather that refreshed the Paducah area two weeks ago with high temperatures in the high 70s and a record low of 56 in the morning of July 17.

"But, of course, all of that's running below normal for this time of year," Humphrey said of this week's weather.

Conditions are also expected to be dry until Thursday, he said, followed by a 20 to 30 percent chance of rain or storms through Sunday.

Humphrey said the frontal system that went through the area over the weekend - delivering 95-degree heat to Paducah and storms to its north and east - also brought the cooler, drier air responsible for this week's conditions.
