Showers and Thunderstorms Possible Wednesday
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Strong south to southwest winds pumped VERY warm air into our region today! Sunshine helped warm temperatures into the low-to-mid 80s Tuesday afternoon. We stay warm Wednesday, but more clouds along with some rain are in the offing.
The south winds turn breezier Tuesday, sending temperatures into the mid-to-lower 80s! We stay very warm into Wednesday, but unsettled weather arrives early in the day and in the afternoon with scattered showers and a few rumbles of thunder possible. Rain showers will be likely Thursday as a series of systems rolls through. Highs dip into the low 70s to close out the week. We’ll stand a chance at more showers Friday mainly in the morning, but at this time, we look dry and warm for Derby weekend! Highs return to the upper 70s by Sunday. Total rainfall amounts on Wednesday and Thursday will be around an inch with locally higher amounts possible to the northwest of Bowling Green towards the Ohio River.
Over the long range, temperatures are expected to be near or slightly above normal for the first week of May along with seasonable moisture (not completely dry, but not looking too wet either) in south-central Kentucky!
