BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - It took awhile, but morning clouds gave way to sunshine Wednesday afternoon. That sun along with a southeast wind warmed us all the way into the lower 80s. Our warming trend continues into the upcoming weekend, with a taste of summer on the way!

A massive ridge of high pressure builds into the Southeast U.S. over the next several days. This will promote some very warm temperatures along with an extended stretch of dry conditions. In fact, our next decent shot at rain does not show up until next Wednesday, when the high pressure ridge shows signs of breaking down. In the meantime, we’ll watch our afternoon highs steadily climb from the mid 80s Thursday into the upper 80s Friday...pushing 90 Saturday before we likely go into the low 90s Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday! Overnight lows will also climb into the upper 60s by early next week.
