Episode Narrative A large and strong high in the upper levels of the atmosphere remained centered over the south central United States. The strength and size of the high brought excessive heat as far northeast as the Lower Ohio Valley and Mid-Mississippi Valley. The peak heat index at Paducah reached 103 degrees on the 1st, 101 on the 2nd, and 117 on the 3rd. On the 3rd, a Kentucky Transportation Cabinet employee was treated for an apparent heat-related illness. The employee was assigned to a brush and weed-clearing crew along U.S. Highway 60 in Ballard County. The worker was treated at a hospital emergency room for dehydration.
