I wish I could celebrate my birthday with fireworks. Anyways, it has been a fun ride. You’ve provided us with the best topographic region in the world to study tornadoes, flooding, hurricanes, derechoes, blizzards, etc, etc, etc. You’ve been wonderful to us.

Anyways, the Fourth Of July holiday is looking at least marginally better than the past several days. Rain chances look to decrease at least a little bit, as the weak stationary front that has plagued us the past few days looks to migrate southward for the day. Even so, look for skies to be dotted with scattered showers and storms into the evening time.

This may have an impact on some fireworks, but we’re Americans. We got through tougher times than rain on the Fourth Of July! We can do it. Highs will be in the lower 80s for most in the region, making for an awesome day.

Overnight, there looks to be a 100% of good food and lots of smoke. No people, that isn’t fog. It’s smoke. Most likely at least. Looks for lows to bottom out in the mid and upper 60s, with some lingering showers and storms.


Sunday: Mostly cloudy, with isolated showers early. High of 79ºF. Sun. night: Clearing out. Low 0f 63ºF

Well Sunday looks like a fairly cruddy day, at least to begin. It’s looking like we’ll be stuck in clouds to start of, and isolated showers will be making their way through the region. This is due in large part to a weak upper level low meandering to our east during the day.

However, because this looks like it’ll be largely to our east by the afternoon/evening, we will likely see clearing take place gradually during the evening hours. Temps look to top out in the upper 70s, which is definitely a win in my book.

Overnight, we should see continual clearing with lows in the lower 60s.


Monday: Consistent sunshine (!!!!). Highs rising to around 87ºF. Mon. night: Increasing clouds. Lows around 73ºF.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Let’s all take a breather here. We read that correctly. The SUN might come out for a little bit on Monday. What is the sun??

I’m just hoping that I remember its appearance. Anyways, Monday looks awesome. Highs look to end up in the upper 80s again under partly cloudy skies. This will be accompanied by somewhat of a southwesterly breeze across the region in relation to a low pressure moving east to our north.

Monday night will likely feature breeze and warm conditions, with clouds increasing ahead of the cold front. Lows in the lower 70s.


Hope the Fourth Of July is awesome for all of you. Eat lots of hot dogs and burgers, and I hope that wherever you are, you’re with the people that you’re closest to.

More Rain In The Weekend Forecast

Real-Time Weather Radar:


Today 7/3 – Mostly Cloudy; Scat’d Showers & Storms – High 80 / Tonight – Mostly Cloudy; Scat’d Showers & Storms – Low 67

Good Morning and TGIF! We’ve been stuck in a soggy forecast for a while with hit-and-miss showers/storms, and it doesn’t look to change much for the Holiday weekend. We may catch a break on Saturday, just in time for all the cookouts and outdoor events – but we’ll talk a bit about that more in a second.

A lingering low pressure system is going to result in scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the day today and into tonight. If you do get out, don’t forget your umbrella, rain boots, rain coat, row boat…you get the picture.

Yesterday Bowling Green received approximately 1.75 inches of rain (Kentucky Mesonet) and new rain totals today are estimated to be around half an inch. A few locations impacted by storms could see more. We’ll still be hovering around 80 degrees for the high temperature, so it will feel comfortable despite the rain.

 Saturday 7/4 – Partly Cloudy; Chance of Afternoon Scat’d Showers & Storms – High 82 / Saturday Night – Partly Cloudy; Chance of Scat’d Showers – Low 68

I know you all are wondering – is it going to rain on Saturday? Current models suggest slight rain chances in the afternoon hours as another low pressure system moves across Tennessee. We could see a little rain along the edge of the system throughout the evening. The majority of the day looks to be pretty great, though, with high temperatures in the low 80s and maybe a little sun peeking through.

Simulated Radar

Simulated Radar valid 7pm Saturday (weather.cod.edu)

Simulated radar for Saturday night shows some light showers south of the area. As hi-resolution model data becomes available for Saturday, we’ll have a better idea of the amount and timing of any potential rain showers. Hopefully your fireworks won’t be rained out!

Sunday 7/5 – Partly Sunny; Isol’d Afternoon Storms – High 84 / Sunday Night – Partly Cloudy – Low 70

Sunday should be relatively calm with partly sunny skies and a chance for the typical pop-up thunderstorms in the afternoon hours. High temperatures will remain below average on Sunday but will be on the rise Monday and Tuesday. It looks to be a great finish to a three day weekend!

Rainy Weather Continues to Stick around

Real-Time Weather Radar:


**Flash Flood Watch for Warren & bordering counties thru 7am Friday**

Today – Cloudy; Showers & Storms – High 80˚ / Tonight – Mostly Cloudy; Showers & Storms – Low 70˚

Howdy, south central Kentucky! Unfortunately, more rain is in the forecast for today and tonight. The cloudy skies and rain will keep temperatures relatively cool with highs near 80. Hey, I’ll take anything under 90˚ in the summer. Rain totals are increasing and flash flooding could become an issue, so please be cautious on the roads!

Our best chance at rainfall will be thru the morning hours of today, thanks to a passing complex (blob) of showers and storms. We should see a lull in the wet stuff by early afternoon, with scattered redevelopment expected over the area between mid afternoon and early evening (3 – 8pm).

For the overnight, temperatures will remain moderate, with lows near 70˚ under mostly cloudy skies. Yes, rain chances will continue, but should stop before before midnight. I would definitely bring an umbrella with you, but hopefully you won’t need it all night!

Friday – Cloudy; Showers & Storms – High 78˚ / Friday Night – Mostly Cloudy; Sct’d Showers –  Low 69˚

Welp. I’m sure y’all guessed it, but there’s more rain in the forecast. Again. Friday looks to be pretty wet, so bring an umbrella or rain jacket with you. However, some good news, temperatures will be pleasant with highs in the upper 70’s under cloudy skies.

WPC Surface Map via NOAA, Valid 7 AM

For the evening, it looks like the start to this Independence Day weekend will be a wet one. Rain chances will diminish slightly by the evening, but bring an umbrella for sure! Lows will be in the upper 60’s under mostly cloudy skies. So, in other words, Thursday and Friday look to be kinda yucky, but there’s still hope! Saturday looks to be slightly less yucky… maybe.

Saturday – Mostly Cloudy; Showers & Storms – High 80˚ / Saturday Night – Mostly Cloudy; Sct’d Showers –  Low 68˚

Happy 4th of July, everybody! Saturday doesn’t seem to be as much of a washout as previous days, so keep your fingers crossed! Again, temperatures will be reasonable with highs near 80 under mostly cloudy skies. Another warning, there could be a lot of rain in a very short amount of time, so please be careful out there. We don’t need any accidents on this fun-filled weekend!

Rainfall Totals Thru Sunday Morning, Via NOAA

For your fireworks show, the rain chances will be less, but expect scattered showers to remain in the region. Rain and cloudy skies will cause temperatures to remain moderate with lows in the upper 60’s. I’m sure hoping this rain will hold off, so we can all see some awesome fireworks in the evening. Hey, I hear that if you wave an American flag in the air and scream “Go USA,” then all the rain chances disappear….
