BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - We actually saw some sunshine return Tuesday afternoon for the final full day of Summer. Fall begins with tumbling temperatures and humidity levels Wednesday! After one more day with rain, get ready for some wonderful weather late week!

Tuesday night, expect more coverage of showers and even thunderstorms as a cold front passes through the Ohio Valley region. Wednesday will have more cloud coverage with moderate rain in the morning followed by lighter rain in the afternoon along with “wrap-around” moisture behind the front - with temperatures taking a BIG hit! Highs on Wednesday will only be in the mid-to-upper 60s with mostly cloudy skies and winds out of the north in the afternoon. Total amounts of rainfall for both Tuesday into Wednesday evening will be between 0.50″ to 2″ with locally higher amounts possible - especially to the north and east of Bowling Green. Threats for ponding on roads and minor flooding will be possible.

After the first half of the week ends, fall weather BEGINS! The fall equinox officially starts on Wednesday at 2:21 p.m. C.D.T., but Mother Nature will deliver much lower humidity and cool conditions Wednesday night into Thursday with overnight lows in the mid-to-upper 40s! Thursday will feature sunshine with highs again in the mid-to-upper 60s, but much drier with northerly winds. Low temperatures Thursday night going into Friday morning will be CHILLY as they go in the mid 40s - which may merit a flannel or coat!! Thursday morning and Friday morning will be the coolest that south-central Kentucky has felt since this past spring - the morning of Memorial Day was the last time Bowling Green had a temperature below 50° (47° was the official low). Friday will also be sunny and cool, though highs will reach the upper 60s and low 70s. The weekend will feature more of the same with highs in the low-to-mid 70s and continued sunshine. What a way to open the first weekend of fall!!
