Wind Advisory through Thursday
Showers and storms tonight followed by a WINDY Thursday!
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Clouds thickened this afternoon ahead of a frontal system arriving tonight. Along and ahead of it comes gusty showers and possibly a few thunderstorms. The threat for severe weather is very low, but not at zero, for late tonight.
Expect showers to increase in coverage after about 9pm tonight. A few embedded rumbles of thunder are possible. There’s still an outside chance for a severe storm, especially west of Bowling Green. If any storm does reach severe limits, locally damaging winds are the main threat, although an isolated, brief tornado is also possible. Rainfall to the tune of 1-2″ is likely for most before we dry out Thursday morning. Wind gusts will pick up tonight, topping out at around 40 mph.
Sunshine returns for much of our Thursday, although it stays windy behind our Wednesday night weathermaker! Wind gusts may reach 40 mph from the west at times. The wind gradually subsides by Friday morning. Otherwise, our weather quiets down for the start of the weekend. More seasonable temperatures are forecast down the stretch, with highs ranging from the upper 40s to near 50. We do stand a chance for a rain/wet snow mix Sunday along with another shot at rain and snow showers next Wednesday.
