BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Today was our first calendar day of Summer! The season began officially at 4:14am, and right on cue, high heat returned Tuesday afternoon with many areas climbing back into the mid-to-upper 90s!

A little relief Thursday

Readings will be very hot again Wednesday, with more humidity present. That sends “feels like” values back into the 100-105° range Wednesday. We could see an isolated late day thunderstorm tomorrow, which could provide much needed rain...and also a brief afternoon cool down. An isolated severe storm cannot be ruled out, especially north of Bowling Green. Locally damaging winds are the main threat.

Temperatures and humidity levels drop a little bit Thursday, but it will still be hotter than average. We warm right back into the mid 90s by Saturday. Another chance of showers moves in for the end of the weekend/beginning of next week with a brief cooldown to follow.
