A Few Storms Possible Again Sunday!

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Some places saw rain for the first time in WEEKS today! Others missed it altogether. Such will be the case again Sunday. Hit-or-miss showers and thunderstorms are possible once again Sunday along a stalled-out front. There’s a better chance it will NOT rain than it will, however. Clouds will hold the heat somewhat in check Sunday, although it will remain very humid. With only a slight chance of an isolated thundershower Monday, the 4th is literally going to be hotter than a firecracker! Heat indices will likely top out in the low 100s Monday afternoon. Overall, it looks as if Mother Nature will cooperate with fireworks shows these next two nights.
