68 degrees ties the record

Staff report

Paducah's roller-coaster winter weather took another big swing Wednesday, tying the record high when the temperature reached 68 degrees.

Wednesday night's temperatures were predicted to stay well above normal.

"With continued strong southerly winds, we still have a chance to break the record before midnight," said meteorologist Robin Smith of the National Weather Service office in Paducah.

Paducah set record highs three times between Dec. 17 and 26.

Smith said that temperature would reach the mid 60s today before "chilling out" on Friday with a high in the upper 30s. Temperatures will slowly rise over the weekend with a return to around 60 degrees Monday and Tuesday.

Winds are expected to remain strong through tonight with gusts as high as 30 mph.

Scattered showers are expected today and through the weekend.
