Holy wow! Do you see that forecast!?

Interesting things! I can’t even express how excited I am for an interesting forecast, but also for a much, much cooler forecast. I mean, I think that my highs could be a bit higher than what they’ll end up being.

Before that, we gotta get through today. Today should be like most other days this week, in which it is just boring, hot and sunny. The ridge sees its final day of dominance today, as a major low pressure system is forecast to begin affecting us tomorrow.

h/t giphy.com

h/t giphy.com

Highs today will end up in the upper 80s and lower 90s across the region. As we head into the overnight hours, anticipate increasing clouds, with lows falling into the mid 60s. Tomorrow is the cool down day!

h/t giphy.com

h/t giphy.com

The deep trough of low pressure will be digging into the eastern US, and will be completely changing the pattern across the region. As this occurs tomorrow, a cold front will be pushing into and through the region, ushering in the cooler weather. Along this front, anticipate a band of breezy showers that should move through pretty quickly.

The majority of the day will be cloudy, with slightly breezy, northwesterly winds. Highs should end up around in the lower 70s. Overnight, look for gradually clearing skies, with lows in the upper 40s.

On Tuesday, arguably the most incredible weather since the spring will be ushered in. I mean, it is gonna be niiiiiiice. Skies will be mostly sunny, with highs in the lower 70s. This is in response to the deep trough that will set up across the region, an slowly move eastward, and then southward.

There is the deep trough! It is bringing with it good tidings and the gift of fantastic weather. h/t pivotalweather.com

Extended Outlook

This week is gonna be interesting, because there are a couple of fields of thought. Some of the guidance is pointing towards the cut off low dipping down towards us by Wednesday/Thursday, and then quickly moving away. The other side of the guidance cuts the mid level low off completely, and rotates it into our region, and doesn’t push it out until next weekend. I think a mixture of those solutions is best to roll with. Either way, this week is gonna be so much nicer.

More Fall-like Bowling Green Weather on the Way

Real-time Bowling Green Weather Radar


Yesterday’s Weather

*checks calendar* It was September 22 yesterday, wasn’t it? Sure didn’t feel like it as a ridge remained parked over the region. That’s really about all that described yesterday…hot and humid. And it’s not going to change much in the short term. But the longer term? That looks like a much different story.

*sigh* (Pivotal Weather)

Forecast Discussion

Well. Not much to discuss tomorrow (I mean, other than the WKU football game!), things remain much as they have for the past few days: sunny, hot and slightly sticky.

Sunday looks to be about the same, the ridge not quite budging yet, with temperatures remaining in the upper-80s, close to 90º and the sun beating down and ugghhhhh!

(Giphy)

(Giphy)

But fear not! It’s all coming to an end very soon. A cold front approaches our area Sunday night into Monday morning, finally breaking up the most monotonous stretch of weather I can remember in some time.

This will give us a shot at a little bit of rain but the big story will be the cooldown heading through the rest of the new work week.

Along with a drop in temperatures comes the associated drop in humidity, giving our mornings that crisp, fall-like feel. And boy am I ready for it, if only to make that trek to class in the morning a tad less miserable.

I call it great weather, personally. (Giphy)

Extended Outlook

Things look decidedly more fall-like next week. Temperatures only reaching into the mid-70s to around 80º at the highest but dew points staying low, allowing our nighttime lows to creep towards that 50º mark, and keeping rain mainly out of sight for the rest of the week. In the longer-term, a stout trough looks to build into the region, a signal that these cooler temperatures will stick around a bit longer than last time.

 

That just about does it for me! Thanks for checking into WxOrNotBG this morning, and be sure to follow @WxOrNotBG and @WKUweather on Twitter and like Landon Hamptonon Facebook for the latest Bowling Green Weather information. Hope you have a terrific Saturday!

Hope Is on the Horizon for Bowling Green Weather

Real-time Bowling Green Weather Radar


Yesterday’s Weather

Like the rest of the past 4 or 5 days, yesterday was just boring weather wise. It was nice, but that doesn’t mean it was interesting! Hahaha. As I will discuss later on, there is hope on the horizon. However, right now, the regime is sunny, warm and boring.

I really can’t believe how boringly warm the weather has been over the past few days. It is almost wild!

Overall, that will continue through this period, but this is the last period that that will occur, and I am too hype about that. I will have what looks to be a challenging forecast ahead, and that’ll be fun.

This is how excited I am. h/t giphy.com

The next few days will be dominated by the same ridge that I have discussed all week. It will become a bit amplified on Saturday ahead of a trough, but otherwise, it should be fairly normal. This ridge isn’t very strong, so that is nice, and is largely why we haven’t seen any ridiculously high numbers yet.

Dewpoints have also been lower this week, which has kept outdoor activities in the “comfortable” zone, and that is really, really nice. Overall, the weather has actually been pretty nice this week. However, it has been exponentially more boring than any week I can remember. So what does this all mean for the forecast?

h/t giphy.com

h/t giphy.com

Well, the ridge remaining our main forcer for out sensible weather, this means very little. The next few days will be very similar to the three days prior to it. Look for mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies during the day across the region, through Sunday. Expect highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s across the region, with dewpoints remaining bearable.

The overnight periods are where stuff begins to get interesting. Tonight and tomorrow night, nothing interesting looks to happen. Sunday night? Our “Hope on the horizon” that I referred to is forecast to begin making its presence at least somewhat known, with cloudy skies and chances for rainfall.

Lows should be in the mid 60s tonight and Saturday night, with low 70s expected for lows on Sunday night.


Extended Outlook

THERE IS HOPE. The models have struggled mightily with this system and how it should eventually evolve, so it has been tough to draw any conclusions as to what may happen this coming week. However, it looks as if a significant trough is going to dig into the central and eastern United States, and cool us down quite a bit. We still have several days to iron out the details right now, but it looks like we may see a major cool down into the middle of next week. So, be watching, as we’ll have updates on that as needed!
