Fall is here, and it definitely felt like it last week! Following a strong cold front, high temperatures were limited to the middle 60s to low 70s for the start of the fall season last Wednesday and Thursday. In some cases, these cool days led to very chilly nights. Thursday night and Friday morning had the coldest temperatures, when lows dropped into the low to middle 40s (map from the Kentucky Mesonet below). Normal lows for this time of year run in the low to middle 50s. The extreme low across the state was in Paintsville, where the mercury dipped to 38 degrees. This marked the first time the state has had a temperature in the 30s since late May.
