Warm and a Bit Unsettled
High clouds will mix with the morning sun with temperatures in the warm upper 60s to mid 70s.
UNSETTLED WEATHER RETURNS:
Wednesday was hot! In fact, it was our hottest day since September 3, 2011, with 90° for a top temp registered at the Bowling Green-Warren Co. Regional Airport! While things remain very warm the rest of this work week, increased humidity will lead to the return of at least isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms today and again Friday. The best chances for rain will be during the late afternoon to early evening hours. A few stronger storms may produce some gusty winds and hail along with locally heavy downpours and lots of lightning. Many areas won’t see a drop, however, due to the hit and miss nature of the storms. Highs will top out in the mid to upper 80s, with overnight lows staying in the 60s.
The first weekend of May does not look like a washout. However, upper air disturbances crossing our region may set off widely scattered thunderstorms from time to time. Afternoon readings will stay over 10° above seasonal averages in the upper 80s, with warm and rather muggy overnights.
EARLY NEXT WEEK:
Storm chances increase Monday into early Tuesday with a cold front arriving. Once this system punches through, rain chances and temperatures come down. Highs drop into the more seasonal 70s by next Wednesday, with overnight lows also cooling down into the 50s late in the period.
