Temperatures have already reached a record in Jackson today! Highs are climbing into the upper 80s with mostly sunny skies! This breaks our previous record set back in 1996 at 84°.
A stray shower remains possible for this afternoon, but most will remain dry! Mostly clear skies will continue this evening as lows drop down into the upper 60s! Once again, it is going to feel like an August night.
Warm weather continues Sunday! Temperatures will top out in the mid to upper 80s! Our high-temperature record for Sunday is 88° (1986), so it is possible we could tie or break that record as well. Sunday will feature mostly sunny and dry conditions, but we cannot rule out a stray afternoon shower.
Clouds will begin to increase as a low-pressure system and cold front approaches our region from the west. That system will bring widespread showers to Eastern Kentucky by Monday morning.
Widespread showers will continue with mostly cloudy skies through Monday. That cold front will also bring cooler air to the region. High temperatures will top out in the low to mid-70s on Monday.
Rain will come to an end on Monday and give us a brief break by Tuesday. Highs on Tuesday will be nice with temperatures reaching the lower 70s.
Another low-pressure system will bring us another round of rain chances Wednesday through Friday. That system will also bring our temperatures below average for the first time all week with high temperatures in the low to mid-60s.
