Front moves through, brings in cooler temperatures.

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 The dominant ridge that has been sitting in place over Kentucky for the past several days has been replaced by a trough, bringing in substantially cooler temperatures that will finally make it feel like summer has ended.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.
