Weather-wise, it was a rather quiet week for the Commonwealth. Outside of some spotty, light activity across North Central Kentucky on Saturday, the only rainfall event was on Wednesday with the passage of a cold front. This boundary forced a narrow band of showers and embedded thunderstorms through the region, mainly Central Kentucky and points to the east. Most remained under a quarter inch, but heavy rain did produce some totals up to around a half inch or more. Temperatures ran below seasonable norms behind the cold front, before rising over the weekend. Highs were back in the low to middle 80s statewide on Sunday, but humidity levels remained low.

Temperatures for the period averaged 69 degrees across the state which was 3 degrees cooler than normal and 2 degrees cooler than the previous period. High temperatures averaged from 83 in the West to 80 in the East. Departure from normal high temperatures ranged from 2 degrees cooler than normal in the West to 3 degrees cooler than normal in the East. Low temperatures averaged from 58 degrees in the West to 58 degrees in the East. Departure from normal low temperature ranged from 3 degrees cooler than normal in the West to near normal in the East. The extreme high temperature for the period was 88 degrees at MADISONVILLE 4S and the extreme low was 48 degrees at MONTICELLO AWOS.
