state. Temperatures will pass 70 over most southern valleys.
The airmass is humid enough that some showers and thunderstorms may
develop over the southeast.

A weak cold front will nudge into northern Pennsylvania this 
evening. A few more showers may develop over the north with the 
stalling front. The showers will gradually dissipate over night 
followed by patchy fog early Friday.

...FEBRUARY 1899...
February.  "The month will go down in Kentucky history as 'the
cold February'.  From the 9th to the 14th was a period of
unprecedented cold; the temperature in many portions of the State
going to 20 to 30 degrees below zero," and to -33 degrees F at
Sandy Hook on 2/11/1899.  In at least one location, "the Kentucky
River, solidly frozen, was possible for team and wagon."
Priddy, UKAWC
The mercury climbed to 79 degrees at the Jackson KY NWS Weather Office. This 
reading represents the warmest February temperature ever recorded at the Jackson 
Weather Office since climate records begin in 1981.
