Fall-like temperatures, are they here to stay?

Good evening folks!

Mostly cloudy skies quickly moved on out of here earlier today giving way to a perfect Thursday. Temperatures around the Bowling Green area top out in the low to middle 60s. An area of high pressure will make its way towards the area during the overnight hours leaving nothing but clear skies. The clear skies during the night time hours will help the temperatures drop into low 40s. Expected even lower temperatures in the low lying valleys as cooler air tends to sink into the valleys.

Cool morning temperatures should rebound quickly from abundant sunshine during the first half of Friday. Highs will be limited, topping out around 61° during the afternoon ours as clouds as partly cloudy skies build in from the west. Most of the day tomorrow looks dry, but rain chances increase heading into the evening hours as a fast-moving shortwave trough moves in from the west. Even though the rain chances increase in the evening hours of Friday, model guidance is hinting at the rain being light.
