BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Tuesday brought plenty of clouds to the region, but some sunshine managed to break through. We also saw temperatures climb into the 80s Tuesday afternoon for the first time in two weeks! Expect more very warm weather in the days ahead.

In the upper levels of the atmosphere, we have a ridge that is allowing for seasonably warm conditions to stick around the region over the next several days - and even a taste of summer by this weekend! Though we have a strong ridge pattern, we could still see some shower chances possible Tuesday as skies will remain mostly cloudy. Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid-to-upper 70s with continued southerly winds, which could be breezy at times. Wednesday through the first half of the weekend looks to be dry with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies as high temperatures will climb into the mid 80s - Saturday could even see the upper 80s as it stands right now! Along with the warm conditions, we could also be a little more humid as overnight lows will not fall below the mid 50s in the foreseeable future! The dry streak continues through the weekend into early next week as temperatures climb into the upper 80s and even low 90s for some!

Perhaps this warm forecast is a signal to open the pool up or plan that hiking trip on some of the beautiful trails here in south-central Kentucky!
