BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Wednesday was warm, even though it was mainly cloudy. The warmth hangs on through early Thursday, but a sharp cold front arrives during the day, putting the skids on our warming and bringing a round of showers and storms to the area.

Plunging temps Thursday night

Thursday has been declared a First Alert Weather Day. Multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms, especially during the morning, could produce heavy downpours and wind gusts up to 35 mph. A few strong-to-isolated severe thunderstorms are possible Thursday morning (a Marginal Risk for severe is up), with the main threat coming between 4am-11am. Temperatures top out in the low-to-mid 60s around noon Thursday before much colder air takes over late day.

Heading into Friday, some flurries are possible to close out the week in the much colder air, but nothing impactful is expected for our area. This weekend starts chilly but dry with highs reaching only to the mid-40s and nighttime lows getting down into the 20s. We warm back up to start next week, but another chance for rain shows up late on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (Monday).
