Chance of Thunderstorms Every Day This Week
By National Weather Service
PADUCAH - Memorial Day will turn out to be the hottest day of the week, as a steady parade of daily thunderstorm chances cool down the rest of the week.

After 91 degrees at Barkley Field on Monday, 85 is expected today, then temperatures will be closer to 80 for the rest of the week.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected this afternoon into the early evening. The greatest coverage should be over southeast Missouri. Locally heavy rainfall and lightning will be the primary concerns, but isolated strong storms with a damaging wind threat cannot be ruled out.

Showers and thunderstorms will overspread the rest of the region and result in a heavy rainfall and even a flooding threat on Wednesday.

Scattered thunderstorms will be possible again Thursday mainly in the afternoon and early evening. Lightning and locally heavy rainfall will be the primary concerns.

A chance of thunderstorms is also forecast Friday into Friday evening. While lightning and locally heavy rain will be the primary hazards, localized strong storms cannot be ruled out, especially during the afternoon and early evening hours. Localized flooding issues are also possible.
