Assignment: Predict the 24 hr maximum temperature (deg F) for Paducah, KY (KPAH)

As an upper level trough moves through the Southeast on Thursday, clouds and rain make for some uncertainty in the high temperature forecast. Let's predict Thursday's Tmax for Paducah, Kentucky.

Question of the Day: The two MOS forecasts both show overcast skies for Paducah all day, but the Tmax forecasts are 10 F apart. What characteristic of the cloud cover could account for such a large difference?
