BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Wednesday featured sweltering heat and humidity with most places missing out on rain. However, storm chances are higher Thursday into Friday.

An updated look at the weekend

As one frontal system draped over the region now fizzles out, a new front arrives from out of the Midwest late Thursday into Friday. This system will trigger more numerous showers and thunderstorms over the next two days. Some storms could be strong with locally heavy rainfall, gusty winds, and dangerous lightning. Additional cloud cover will result in cooler temps these next two days.

We’ll catch a brief break in the high heat and humidity at the start of the weekend Saturday. The first half of the weekend appears mainly dry before showers and thunderstorms return Sunday as a new system moves in. The early part of next week appears very warm, humid, and unsettled. Highs climb back into the 90s with time.
