Discussion: Summer has made a come back during the later half of this week and that trend looks to continue into the weekend. After an extended time of unseasonably cool temperatures, the temperature has warmed back up to the upper 80s; 89 is the average high this time of year. A very weak cold front has slid through the Commonwealth today which sparked off a few showers and thunderstorms, predominately over southern and western parts of the state. A few storms pulsed up and briefly became severe, one of which happened to be over parts of Warren County. There were several reports of pea to quarter sized hail mainly confined to south side of Bowling Green along Scottsville Road down to I-65. The image below was hail sent in by Andrew Schuler which fell at Sam's Club near the intersection of Scottsville Road and I-65. The storm also dumped some heavy rain with over 1.5" of rain falling at the Warren Co mesonet site.
