BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Despite more high-to-mid level clouds, Thursday’s readings stayed unseasonably warm! We’ll open up October with more warm temperatures and one more dry day before showers and thunderstorms return.

Friday is “Food Truck Friday”, and the weather looks good for the WBKO event to benefit Hope Harbor! At this time, the first day of October looks dry with a mix of sun and clouds with warm highs in the low-to-mid 80s.

The weekend looks more unsettled as the ridge that kept much of the work week dry begins to break down. This will allow waves of energy to move into the region along with sticky humidity to create scattered shower and storm chances. These ‘hit-or-miss’ variety showers and storms will be in between partly cloudy skies and seasonable temperatures. Highs Saturday will be in the upper 70s and low 80s with lows in the low-to-mid 60s. If you’re intent on trying to work in outdoor activities this weekend, you might consider Saturday, as Sunday features a much better chance for more widespread rain and thunderstorms. The rain chances roll into next week - with Monday seeing conditions similar to Sunday as the cold front begins to slide through the region. The front begins to break down and weaken - and though coverage of rain will lessen behind the front, chances won’t be zero as slight chances of showers and storms will be possible. It will be cooler behind the front, however, with high temperatures expected to be in the mid 70s through the middle of next week! You can track the rain chances plus the latest conditions and forecast on the WBKO First Alert Weather app for south-central Kentucky!
