Good evening folks!!
The rain from earlier today associated with an area of low pressure has moved on out of here. Cloudy skies will remain over the area for the rest of the afternoon and into the overnight hours. Winds that are currently out of the S and SW will shift thanks to a cold front that will slowly drift eastward. Temperatures behind the front will drop into the 40s throughout the area with winds out of the NW at 15 mph with occasional gusts to 25 mph. Low temperatures for tonight will drop to around 44° in the Bowling Green area.

Heading into Friday, scattered showers will linger around the area as the area of low pressure continues to move off towards the northeast. As it moves towards the northeast, it will drag a weak frontal boundary or a weak axis of convergence that will hover across the Ohio River Valley. This area of convergence could spark off some scattered showers and drizzle across the area. Highs across the area should remain right around 50° thanks to winds out of the WNW and extensive cloud cover.
