BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - More soaking showers drenched many on Thursday across south-central Kentucky, but we have a brief break from the rain as slightly drier conditions pass through the region. Don’t worry - it will still be muggy.

High school football games in south-central Kentucky should be good to start on time with warm, muggy conditions. A few stray showers can't be ruled out to the south and west of the WBKO viewing area.(WBKO)

Only a slight chance for a few spotty showers exists Friday (best chance south and west of Bowling Green). Otherwise, conditions look dry for opening night of high school football games Friday night! Highs Friday will be warmer, topping out in the upper 80s and even a few low 90s. Saturday brings more “hit-or-miss” showers and storms with some places getting heavy rain while others will remain dry. Saturday’s top temperatures will climb into the upper 80s with continued muggy conditions. An umbrella will be handy to have nearby, but won’t be used all the time. By Sunday, chances will lessen with stray showers and storms with a mix of sun and clouds and high temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s. Next week will feature drier and hotter conditions as skies will be more sun than clouds. High temperatures will be in the low 90s with even some spots in the mid 90s. Again, it will still be muggy, so it will feel hotter. Maybe you can cool off with your folks at one of the lakes in south-central Kentucky next week after work or school - but don’t forget to stay hydrated and the sunscreen! And be sure to track the latest conditions on the WBKO First Alert Weather app for any pop-up activity on radar!
