The sight of a double-rainbow this morning was a surprise to many across Southern Kentucky.
As rain moved in over Bowling Green, the sun was still shining ahead of the leading edge of rain which caused the rainbows to appear. Many folks took pictures and uploaded them to WBKO’s Capture Kentucky page at WBKO.com and to our facebook and twitter pages.
So far, rainfall amounts across Southern Kentucky have ranged from a tenth of an inch to around three-tenths of an inch.
The first of two waves of rain has already passed through Bowling Green and is now heading into Central and Eastern Kentucky. From here on out, there will be low clouds and patchy drizzle or light rain showers.
We could see another round of showers this afternoon and early evening as a low pressure system and cold front pass through Southern Kentucky. In the graphic above, the red arrow indicates the path of the low pressure system. The white arrows indicate the circulation of wrap-around moisture still in tow with the system. It is that moisture wrapping around the low that will move through later today possibly producing another .10-.25″ of rainfall across the region.
Tonight, low clouds and drizzle may persist for a while until drier air works in overnight and into Friday clearing away any overcast that remains.
We look to see some sunshine by Friday afternoon as high pressure builds into the area which should bring us a nice weekend!
