...Dry And Warm Conditions Continue, Isolated Showers & Storms In The Afternoon...

Other than an isolated pop-up near Hopkinsville, the state is dry as of 430 this afternoon. There is some scattered activity expected to push into Western Kentucky this evening and early overnight. Any storms then look to diminish over west-central KY before pressing further east.

Coverage is once again expected to remain on the low side tomorrow and continuing that way through the weekend. It will be hot though as more summer-like conditions return to the Ohio Valley. Highs look to be solidly in the upper 80s to low 90s tomorrow across the state.

Afternoon periods of danger livestock heat stress will accompany the afternoon temperatures.

Hazardous Weather Outlook For UNION County, Kentucky
321 PM CDT Wed Jun 26 2019

 DAY ONE  This Afternoon and Tonight

Numerous thunderstorms over the Ozark Foothills of southeast 
Missouri will produce torrential rainfall of 2 inches or more as 
they move very slowly eastward across the remainder of southeast 
Missouri through sunset. Flash flooding will be a major concern, 
and a few severe storms with large hail and damaging winds will 
also be possible. Other more isolated storms may develop elsewhere
across the region through sunset. A stray storm could briefly 
pulse up to near severe levels to produce gusty winds and hail, 
along with heavy rainfall.

Scattered to numerous thunderstorms are expected to develop
primarily over southeast Missouri tonight, mainly after midnight.
These storms will pose a heavy rainfall and flash flooding 
threat. 

 DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN  Thursday through Tuesday

Scattered to numerous thunderstorms are expected to continue
across southeast Missouri and possibly spread to southern Illinois
and west Kentucky Thursday. These storms will pose a heavy 
rainfall and flash flooding threat. The flash flooding potential 
will be greatest over southeast Missouri. Expect rapid rises on 
area rivers.

A chance of thunderstorms is forecast mainly Tuesday afternoon 
and evening. Locally heavy rain, occasional lightning, and gusty 
winds would be the primary weather hazards.

 SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT  

Spotter activation for severe weather cannot be ruled out late 
this afternoon over southeast Missouri and southern Illinois. 
Spotters should also report any heavy rainfall and flooding.

At Newbury, Massachusetts, a violent tornado did extensive damage.

A "wind rush" at Washington, DC damaged the city hall and the Masonic Temple.

Hurricane Audrey smashed ashore at Cameron LA drowning 390 persons in the
storm tide, and causing 150 million dollars damage in Texas, Louisiana and
Mississippi. Audrey left only a brick courthouse and a cement-block
icehouse standing at Cameron, and when the waters settled in the town of
Crede, only four buildings remained. The powerful winds of Audrey tossed a
fishing boat weighing 78 tons onto an off-shore drilling platform. Winds
along the coast gusted to 105 mph, and oil rigs off the Louisiana coast
reported wind gusts to 180 mph. A storm surge greater than twelve feet
inundated the Louisiana coast as much as 25 miles inland. It was the
deadliest June hurricane of record for the U.S. (David Ludlum) (The Weather
Channel)
...1994...
The big heat continued in the southwestern U.S.  Lakewood, New Mexico hit a 
scorching 119 degrees to set a new all-time state record.  Afternoon highs of 
116 degrees at Midland, Texas, 114 at Lubbock, Texas and Roswell, new Mexico, 
and 113 at El Paso, Texas set new all-time records for those locations.  The 
mesonet station 4 miles south of Tipton, Oklahoma hit 120 degrees, to tie the 
state record high temperature.
