At long last, the summer heat has broken! The dominant ridge that has been sitting in place over Kentucky for the past several days has been replaced by a trough, bringing in substantially cooler temperatures that will finally make it feel like summer has ended. While we cannot rule out the possibility of a fall heat wave, it would be rather unusual for that to occur.
The cold front associated with this transition brought our area a somewhat impressive squall line. While the SPC did not receive any reports of severe weather, a series of thunderstorms dropped plenty of rain across the state as Bowling Green temperatures dropped from the upper 80s to the mid 70s over the course of an hour. A more detailed analysis of this system will come tomorrow, as the Kentucky Mesonet releases precipitation totals for today across the state.
