Cold Night Ahead Bowling Green Weather

Real-Time Bowling Green Weather Radar:


 This Afternoon – Mostly Sunny; Cool – High 63º / Tonight – Mostly Clear; Cold  Low 35º

3pm 63º – 6pm 58º – 9pm 48º – 12am 44º – 3am 39º – 6am 35º

It’s been another gorgeous Fall day across southern Kentucky as we’ve dealt with plenty of sunshine and cooler afternoon temperatures in the lower 60’s. The remainder of your afternoon and evening will be nice, but cool as thermometer readings drop into the upper 50’s.

Surface high pressure will slide in from our northwest before situating itself right across the Commonwealth early Thursday morning. In return, look for skies to remain clear as winds calm. This will set the stage for a cold overnight with anticipated lows in the mid 30’s. Some valley locations could drop into the lower 30’s with areas of patchy frost possible. The Nam model is spot on with my current thoughts.

Thu – Mostly Sunny; Nice – High 64º / Thu Night – Partly Cloudy; Chilly – Low 45º

With a cold start to the day, a jacket will definitely come in handy if you’re out and about early Thursday morning. However, temperatures look to quickly rebound by the afternoon hours as highs climb towards the mid 60’s under mostly sunny skies.

The aforementioned high pressure will maintain its grip across the region as a weaker disturbance passes to our north. It appears that most cloud cover will stay across central and northern parts of the state. For us, look for dry conditions to prevail with a few clouds building in by Thursday night. Lows will drop into the mid 40’s.

Fri – Mostly Sunny; Warmer – High 69º / Fri Night – Mostly Clear; Cold – Low 46º

Not a whole lot changes by the end of the week as the drying trend continues. Temperatures will begin to slowly moderate back near seasonable conditions by Friday with even warmer readings for the weekend. Comfortable temperatures and plenty of sunshine will make that departure from work Friday afternoon that much sweeter.

Friday night will feature calm and cool weather as overnight lows drop into the mid 40’s. Temperatures for Saturday and Sunday warm into the low-mid 70s under mostly sunny skies as a picture perfect Fall weekend lies ahead. That means only one thing….get out and take advantage of this weather!

That does it for now, folks. Be sure to stay up to date with all your real time Bowling Green weather info @WxOrNotBG and @WarrenCountyWX on twitter.

Bowling Green Weather Update

Real Time Bowling Green Weather Radar:


Today 10/22 – Mostly Sunny – High 67° / Tonight – Mostly Clear – Low 38°

High pressure located to the north of the region will continue to dominate the weather for the time being. With a substantial lack of appreciable moisture in the atmosphere, I do not expect much in the way of cloud cover for today. Yesterday, the models preformed poorly in regard to the high temperature for the area. Model consensus was that the high would be in the mid 60s, however the high in Bowling Green was just shy of 70°. Thus, I’ll adjust today’s forecast high temperatures a bit warmer than the models. Bottom line: expect a high around 67°. Awesome, right?

Tonight, mostly clear skies will once again allow those temperatures to bottom out despite the warm daytime temperatures. Expect lows to be in the upper 30s.

Thursday 10/23 – Mostly Sunny – High 65° / Thur Night – Partly Cloudy – Low 42°

We’ll see a bit of a break in the upper level ridging pattern as a weak shortwave trough intrudes the area. This feature appears to be pretty weak in the low to mid level portions of the atmosphere, thus we don’t expect this to have much of an impact on Bowling Green weather conditions. A few more clouds may show up on Thursday but that’s about it. Highs will remain in the mid 60s. Circled below is the shortwave mentioned above.

Thursday night will bring a few more clouds to the region in response to the aforementioned shortwave trough. Lows will be in the low to mid 40s.

Friday 10/24 – Partly Cloudy  -High 72° / Fri Night – Mostly Clear – Low 51°

A few clouds will remain possible as a weak disturbance moves through the region on Friday morning. A few light sprinkles may also be possible on Friday morning. As the disturbance pushes to the east of the region, moisture will begin to get depleted once again. Skies should begin clearing once more in the afternoon hours. Highs will be in the low 70s. It’s Friday, be sure to get outdoors so this doesn’t happen.

Conditions should clear off during the overnight hours. Lows will be in the low 50s.

That should wrap up this post. Be sure to follow @WxOrNotBG and @WarrenCountyWX for all the latest Bowling Green weather information. Have a great day!

Tuesday Afternoon Weather Update

Real Time Bowling Green Weather Radar:

This Afternoon – Partly Cloudy – High 68° / Tonight – Partly Cloudy – Low 39°

Good afternoon, a beautiful day is in progress across southern Kentucky as we remain in a cool and dry air mass. Temperatures are currently in the middle to upper 60s across the region with partly cloudy skies. The reason for the cooler temperatures is our position upstream of an upper-level trough axis that is allowing northwest flow aloft and northerly winds at the surface to advect colder temperatures into our area.

Check out the current look at the jet stream showing this northwest flow over our area.

Surface winds will become calmer overnight which will help our low temperatures drop into the upper 30s tonight under mostly clear skies.

Wednesday 10/22 – Mostly Sunny – High 62° / Wed Night – Mostly Clear – Low 36°

Not much change in the forecast is expected on Wednesday as the same pattern continues. Temperatures may run a few degrees cooler, but otherwise expect another autumn-like day with quiet weather.

Thursday 10/23 – Mostly Sunny – High 63° / Thur Night – Mostly Cloudy – Low 42°

High pressure will settle into the region on Thursday and help to end the cold air advection we have been seeing over the past few days. Winds will become calm underneath this surface high and high temperatures will reach the lower to middle 60s under mostly sunny skies.

Cloud cover will increase by Thursday evening as a weak surface cold front pushes into western Kentucky. This front will be deprived of moisture for the most part and as of now the only real impacts we expect to see from this front are an increase in cloud cover and a shift to westerly winds.

If you have been finding our weather this week just a bit on the chilly side, a ridge is expected to build into our area this weekend which will usher in the return of temperatures in the 70s.
