The remnants of Hurricane Isaac have made their way east and local residents can now look forward to cooler temperatures forecast for the weekend.
High temperatures are forecast to top out in the low 90’s most of this week, but a cool front will bring a taste of Fall Saturday when the mercury isn’t supposed to rise above 75 in Hopkinsville.
National Weather Service in Paducah meteorologist David Humphrey says it looks to be nice this weekend and going into next week.
Humphrey says the long-range outlook through much of the Fall season is for above-normal temperatures.
Rain amounts from Hurricane Isaac varied greatly across the area, with a gauge at Lake Barkley Dam recording 2 inches over a five day period, while the highest official amount recorded in Hopkinsville listed at just over a half-inch.
