NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Partly cloudy with milder temperatures.
6am: Partly Cloudy 62°
8am: Partly Cloudy 69°
10am: Partly Cloudy 78°

WARMING TREND CONTINUES:
We climbed back into the 80s Wednesday as the core of an unseasonably cool air mass retreats. Today will feature a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the mid 80s.

SMALL RAIN CHANCES:
A weak disturbance moves into the lower Ohio Valley Friday into Saturday. This gives us slight chances for mainly scattered, late-day showers and thunderstorms those days. Rain chances dwindle Sunday as the weak weathermaker heads out. Highs will range from the mid to upper 80s with milder overnight lows in the 60s.

MORE SEASONABLE NEXT WEEK:
While we’re not looking at extreme heat or humidity, we are expecting temperatures more typical of mid-summer to return early next week. Highs will climb to near 90 each day with lows in the mid 60s. Rain chances appear very slim early next week.

SLOWLY WARMING UP:
Nice weather sticks around through midweek, with temperatures climbing a little bit. After near record lows in the mid 50s this morning, we’ll warm back into the 80s under mostly sunny skies in the afternoon. Thursday’s readings may be a tad warmer still with a mix of sun and clouds expected. Humidity levels will stay low and comfortable through the next two days.

SMALL RAIN CHANCES:
Some return flow moisture from the Gulf may help squeeze out a few isolated thundershowers Friday and Saturday, but widespread and beneficial rain is not likely at this time. Temperatures will rise into the mid to upper 80s over the weekend into early next week, with overnight lows in the 60s.

PLEASANT THROUGH MIDWEEK:
We will be wrapping up the month of July with temperatures more typical of early Autumn! Expect mostly sunny skies each of the next three days with fair skies each night. Highs today should just barely rise above record cool daytime temps for the date…going into the upper 70s. Lows Wednesday morning won’t be far from a record either (53 set in 1965 for Bowling Green), with mid 50s expected. A slow warming trend kicks in for Wednesday and Thursday, but humidity levels will stay low and comfortable.

ANOTHER JULY COOLDOWN:
After a stormy Sunday, cooler and less humid air moves back in along with abundant sunshine today with highs in the low 80s. A weak upper trough will swing through this afternoon bringing a few clouds and maybe a sprinkle or two but it will also help reinforce the cooler, Canadian air that will drop us into the mid to upper 50s tonight. Tuesday will be mainly sunny and pleasant with highs only in the mid to upper 70s!

JULY CLOSES COOL:
This has already been one of the coolest July’s on record for Bowling Green and Southern Kentucky and the next few days we’ll see temps running 5-7 degrees below average in the middle 80s. As August begins this weekend, highs will stay in the 80s but a new disturbance will bring a few late day showers through Sunday.

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Warm and humid.
6am: Mostly Clear 73°
8am: Mostly Clear 78°
10am: Partly Cloudy 86°

RAIN MOVES IN:
It’s feeling more like July again thanks to higher temperatures and humidity levels. The heat stays with us today before a cold front dives in from the northwest by evening. This could set off a round of showers and thunderstorms for the afternoon and evening. Organized severe weather is not anticipated, but a couple of storms could be quite strong with gusty winds and locally heavy downpours. Highs will top out in the low 90s with heat indices in the mid to upper 90s.

LATE WEEK COOLDOWN:
We’ll get a taste of cooler, less humid air Thursday into Friday. Afternoon readings will reach the lower 80s Thursday with mid 80s Friday under mostly sunny skies both days. You’ll be able to turn off the A/C’s and open up the windows Thursday night, as lows drop into the comfy upper 50s!

ANOTHER WARMUP, THEN ANOTHER COOLDOWN:
Readings climb back into the 90s Saturday before our next cold front arrives late in the weekend. We’ll stand chances for scattered showers and storms both weekend days with a small chance for rain lingering into Monday. Another shot of unseasonably cool, less humid air arrives early next week.

SEASONABLY HOT…
The heat and humidity has returned to south central Kentucky. Temps will be in the low 90s today with “feels like” temps in the upper 90s at times. Stay hydrated if outdoors for an extended period of time. Rain chances look slim other than a pop-up shower/storm with daytime heat and humidity as a ridge of high pressure stretches across the region. Wednesday will be very hot and humid as well before a cold front brings temps down for the latter half of the week.

…THEN UNSEASONABLY COOL
A cold front slides through the region Wednesday afternoon bringing a chance of showers and storms. There is a possibility of some strong storms with gusty winds and heavy rainfall. Scattered showers and storms likely Wednesday night into Thursday. Temps take an unseasonably cool dip into the low to mid 80s before more rain chances come our way for the weekend.
