A line of thunderstorms currently (as of 11:45 cdt) passing through Hopkinsville is trying to develop into an organized squall line. When this line arrives around 2-3 in the morning, don’t expect anything severe for south central Kentucky. While the upper level support is there, a surface temperature in the low-60s in Bowling Green with a dew point in the mid-50s simply will not create the unstable environment necessary for explosive development. Expect heavy rain with some gusty winds here and there along with some vibrant cloud-to-ground lightning. It looks like the worst of the storms will track along and just south of the Kentucky/Tennessee border. Some lingering showers may follow later this morning after this initial line of storms passes.
