NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Mainly clear and muggy.
6am: Mainly Clear 70°
8am: Mainly Clear 75°
10am: Mainly Sunny 84°

HOT AND HUMID:
It’s official: We reached 90° for the first time this year on Monday with a high of 91° at the Bowling Green Airport. It looks as if we will do it again today as a ridge of high pressure will keep us mainly dry for much of the work week. Heat and UV index values will be high through midweek, so you may want to limit your time outdoors. More hot and humid days along with warm and muggy nights are ahead for southern Kentucky as temps top out around 90° with heat index levels reaching around 100°.

RAIN RETURNS:
An approaching disturbance will begin to touch off a chance of mainly late day scattered showers/storms starting Thursday. Better rain chances come as we wrap up the week and head into the upcoming weekend.

Heavy Rain Potential for Southern Kentucky

Posted on Updated on

Rainfall forecast shows the possibility of 2" or more of rain through early Thursday.
Rainfall forecast shows the possibility of 2″ or more of rain through early Thursday.

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Cloudy and humid with a chance of showers.
6am: Cloudy 68°
8am: Cloudy 71°
10am: Showers/Thunderstorms 75°

RAIN CHANCES RISE:
Expect a stormy time of it through midweek with numerous rounds of showers and thunderstorms. Some of the rain could be heavy at times with a general 1-2″ likely across the region by late Wednesday. A few storms could also be strong with intense lightning and gusty winds. Highs will remain below average due to plenty of clouds these next two days, only topping out in the upper 70s. Lows at night will be warm and rather muggy in the upper 60s.

STILL UNSETTLED BUT WARMING UP:
As skies brighten up late week, we’ll see temperatures gradually moderate back to the very warm normals for mid-June. Daily chances for at least isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms remain in play, although rain should not be as widespread. Highs climb from the low 80s Thursday into the upper 80s by Father’s Day (Sunday) and Monday.

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Look for a mix of sun and clouds with areas of patchy fog.
6am: Partly Cloudy 71°
8am: Partly Cloudy 74°
10am: Partly Cloudy 78°

STAYING UNSETTLED:
Little change to the ongoing forecast as we will continue to see a chance of a shower or thunderstorm along with a mix of sun and clouds today…highs reach back into the mid 80s. We’ll see a short, quiet period of weather for much of Wednesday with mainly sunny skies and highs reaching into the upper 80s but…

SEVERE STORMS LATE WEDNESDAY:
A better chance for organized severe storms is possible Wednesday night as a storm complex develops and moves out of the Plains toward the Ohio Valley along with a cold front. This could produce widespread damaging wind and hail Wednesday night.

400 MILE YARD SALE WEEKEND:
One of Kentucky’s largest yard sales across US 68 will be affected by chances for a few showers and thunderstorms – although, much of Saturday looks rain-free and ideal for your hidden treasure hunting.

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Partly cloudy and humid with isolated showers possible.
6am: Partly Cloudy 71°
8am: Partly Cloudy 71°
10am: Isolated Showers 76°

MORE OF THE SAME:
The story stays unchanged for the new work week. Afternoon/evening “hit and miss” showers and thunderstorms will remain as temps stay just above average. Some storms could contain heavy rain, gusty winds, and frequent lightning. South Central Kentucky could see some serious rain makers at times with rainfall amounts up to half an inch or more. The unsettled weather will be coupled with high humidity across the region.

WEDNESDAY SEVERE:
A better chance for organized severe storms are possible Wednesday as a storm complex develops and moves out of Nebraska toward Kentucky. This could produce widespread damaging wind and hail Wednesday night.

400 MILE YARD SALE WEEKEND:
One of Kentucky’s largest yard sales across US 68 will be affected by chances for a few showers and thunderstorms – otherwise, not much will change with the ongoing forecast through Sunday.

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Warm and humid with isolated showers and thunderstorms.
6am: Partly Cloudy, Isolated Showers 69°
8am: Partly Cloudy, Isolated Showers 73°
10am: Partly Sunny, Isolated Showers 79°

WORK WEEK WRAP-UP:
More scattered showers and storms across South Central Kentucky yet again as a weak cold front slides through to our south today. Any stronger storms could bring heavy downpours, frequent lightning and gusty winds, mainly during the afternoon. Temps top out in the mid 80s and lows stay very mild in the upper 60s.

THE WEEKEND AND WEEK AHEAD:
Drier and less humid air slides in behind the front just in time for the weekend. Saturday is looking mostly rain-free (with the exception of an isolated late-day shower) and very warm with highs in the upper 80s. More humid conditions come back around along with scattered showers and storms Sunday as highs get closer to the 90 mark. The afternoon/evening “hit and miss” shower and storm pattern returns for much of next week as temps stay just above average.

A Few Storms Today and Thursday

Posted on Updated on

A slight risk for a few severe storms late this afternoon mainly north of the Bluegrass and Western Kentucky Parkway region.
A slight risk for a few severe storms late this afternoon mainly north of the Bluegrass and Western Kentucky Parkway region.

NOWCAST THROUGH EARLY AFTERNOON:
Mainly sunny, warm and humid with southerly breezes.
6am: Mostly Clear 65°
8am: Mostly Sunny 69°
10am: Mostly Sunny 77°

BREEZY, WARM AND HUMID:
Temperatures made it back into the 80s for the first time in a week on Election Day. We’ll remain quite warm today with more breezy southwest winds. Under a mix of sun and clouds, highs should climb into the mid 80s with a few places south and west of Bowling Green possibly reaching the upper 80s. Humidity will be noticeably higher as well. A few storms may develop north of the parkways this afternoon – a few of which could be strong.

TURNING SLIGHTLY COOLER:
Our next frontal system eases southward from out of the Midwest Thursday morning. This gives us a decent chance for scattered showers and storms during that period. A few storms may be strong over Southern Kentucky where a SLIGHT RISK for severe storms exists. Readings stay quite warm before backsliding a bit beginning Thursday. The work week ends on a dry and seasonable note Friday.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND:
At this time, the upcoming holiday weekend appears nice and dry. We’ll see a warming trend, with highs climbing from the low 80s Saturday into the upper 80s Monday. We may even flirt with 90 Tuesday!

6am: Mostly Clear 62°
8am: Mostly Clear 67°

MORE WARMING:
Monday was our warmest day in nearly a week as seasonable temperatures returned. We’ll keep the sunshine around again today. If you plan to head out to vote at any point during Primary Election Day, there will be no need for umbrellas or even a jacket beyond early morning. Breezy southwest winds (gusting to 30 mph) will help send the mercury soaring into the mid 80s by afternoon. Tonight will be mild with lows only in the lower 60s.

MIDWEEK STORMS:
Our next frontal system eases southward from out of the Midwest late Wednesday into Thursday morning. This gives us a decent chance for showers and storms during that period with a few of them possibly strong, mainly north of the Bowling Green area. Readings stay quite warm through Wednesday before backsliding a bit beginning Thursday. The work week ends on a dry and seasonable note Friday.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND:
At this time, the upcoming holiday weekend appears nice and dry. We’ll see a warming trend, with highs climbing from the low 80s Saturday into the upper 80s Monday.

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Warm and humid with periods of showers and thunderstorms.
6am: Rain and Thunderstorms 63°
8am: Rain and Thunderstorms 65°
10am: Showers and Thunderstorms 65°

COOL DOWN COMING:
A sharp cold front moves in putting the skids on our recent Summer-like warmth. It will also bring more widespread showers and thunderstorms with heavy rainfall of 1-2″ possible. A SLIGHT RISK for severe weather also exists for mainly this afternoon and early evening. A few storms could contain locally damaging winds and large hail, with an isolated tornado also possible. Highs will be cooler, topping out in the mid 70s. Cooler air will spill into the area tonight with showers and thunderstorms. Thursday will be mostly cloudy and unseasonably cool, with showers chances lingering.

UNSEASONABLY COOL:
Cooler than average temperatures will be the story through the weekend. Highs will top out in the mid 60s Friday into Saturday before some moderation late in the period. There is a small chance for showers Friday afternoon, otherwise rain chances are very nill into early next week.
