30-Degree Drop Ends Near-Record Heat

Sep 6, 2011

Sometimes a 70-degree day feels downright balmy, but that wasn't the case Monday. Bet you grabbed a sweater or a jacket before leaving the house, right? That's because over the weekend, Central Kentucky sizzled when it hit 98 degrees Friday and Saturday. That was close to the record of 100 for both days. "When you get a 30-degree switch, you're obviously going to feel a shock," said Ryan Sharp, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Louisville.
