BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Thursday was our second-straight day with a sizzling high temp of 97° in Bowling Green. Friday looks hot, though not quite as hot as today, thanks to the arrival of a front that will bring back rain chances along with cooler temperatures.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop along a cold front Friday afternoon. A few storms could be strong with gusty winds (a Marginal Risk for severe weather is up for Friday). Chances decrease by Saturday but we could still see some isolated storms across south central Kentucky, so you’ll want to keep the rain gear with you. Sunday looks dry and less hot with daytime highs in the mid to upper 80s. Beyond Sunday, we’ll see daily rain chances - though they’ll be hit or miss and not a complete washout. Daytime highs will stay consistent in the mid to upper 80s throughout next Wednesday.
