Paducah avoids triple-digit heat

Staff report

To the relief of many, Paducah hasn't had a single day reaching 100 degrees this summer and stands a good chance of making it to fall without any.

The hottest day in Paducah so far this year - July 27 - had a high of 95, according to the local National Weather Service.

David Humphrey, Paducah NWS lead forecaster, said it's not unusual for Paducah to have a summer without 100 degrees. He said looking back to 1937, no 100 degree readings were recorded in 47 of those 77 years.

Humphrey said summers that reach 100 tend to experience it multiple days.

For example, in 2012 Paducah hit 100 degrees on 18 days. That summer also saw the hottest day on record on June 29 at 108 degrees. It shares the top spot with July 17, 1942.

Seasonal temperatures are forecast this weekend with highs in the upper 80s and lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s. The average high for mid-August is 90 degrees.

There is a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms Saturday night followed by a 50 percent chance on Sunday.
