BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Storms will continue to develop and pulsate this afternoon as there is plenty of moisture in the atmosphere. The moisture has not only allowed storms to fire up, but it has also allowed for heat indices, or feels like temperatures, to be in the upper 90s and low 100s in the region. Skies will be partly cloudy as today will be very warm to hot in southern Kentucky. Expect storm coverage to decrease just after sunset as skies will remain partly cloudy to mostly clear late. Areas of patchy fog are also possible late tonight into early Thursday morning!
