Stormy Bowling Green Weather

Real Time Bowling Green Weather Radar:


Today 8/4 – Partly Cloudy; Isolated Storms – High 93° / Tonight – Isolated Showers – Low 74°

A stationary boundary is noted just north of the region today. The high resolution models show this boundary wobbling very slowly to the south today. South of the boundary, southerly winds are forecast, while northerly winds will accompany conditions north of the boundary. This will bring the high to around 93° today. I know, not great, but also…

With the convergence along the stationary front, lift should be sufficient for the possibility of a few isolated showers and thunderstorms across the region. Not everyone will see rain in their backyard, but a couple storms aren’t out of the question.

Storms should weaken to mostly showers through the evening and overnight. There’s still a lingering possibility of a rogue shower or two during the overnight as well. Lows will be around 74°.

Wednesday 8/5 – Scattered Thunderstorms – High 91° / Wed Night – Scattered Storms – Low 73°

The aforementioned stationary boundary will be pushed south with the help of any thunderstorms that form today. It’s beginning to look like the boundary may be sitting on top of Bowling Green on Wednesday for much of the day. This should lead to partly cloudy skies and highs in the low to mid 90s, depending on your location relative to the boundary.

A relatively strong short wave trough located to the west of the region will lead to divergence aloft across much of western Kentucky. This will enhance the lift along the boundary, causing for more widespread thunderstorm development. Due to weak flow aloft, severe storms aren’t a particular concern, however strong storms may be possible.

Scattered thunderstorms will continue in the overnight as thunderstorm complexes continue to move in from the west. Lows will be around 73°.

Thursday 8/6 – Scattered Thunderstorms – High 86° / Thur Night – Isolated Showers – Low 71°

Scattered thunderstorms will continue to be a possibility on Thursday as the shortwave trough strengthens and organizes over the Bowling Green area. Additional organization of the thunderstorms could be brought on by better flow aloft. A couple of large thunderstorm clusters may be possible on Thursday. Again, a few storms may be strong.

The shortwave will move to the east of the region on Thursday night, leaving only isolated showers in its wake. Lows will drop into the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Given the nature of the thunderstorms forecast, isolated flash flooding may be a concern moving forward for those places the receive a few rounds of thunderstorms. Flash flooding, in the event that it occurs, should remain pretty localized. Just thought it would be a wise side note.

That should wrap up this forecast. Be sure to follow @WxOrNotBG for the latest Bowling Green weather updates. Have a great day!

Warm, Humid and Stormy

Real-time BG Radar:


Today: Partly cloudy, with a high of 93ºF. Tonight: Partly cloudy, with isolated storms. Lows around 74ºF.

Man, what a great weekend that was! It was sunny all weekend, and it felt good outside. It was the perfect weekend to head outdoors and enjoy the gifts of nature!

However: today is Monday.

Even though it is the worst day of the week, it’s looking pretty nice weatherwise. Still being mainly under the influence of high pressure, out weather weather is looking warm and humid. Temperatures during the afternoon hours will likely reach the lower 90s for almost all of us, with dewpoints hitting the 70s.

This will create a mega uncomfortable atmosphere to really do anything in, so it might be pretty good that you are at work! Hit another cup of coffee by 2 pm, and you’ll be good to go!

Towards the evening, we may see a batch of dying high clouds moving across the region, but no rain is really expected. As we head into the overnight hours, much of the same is expected, with lows falling into the mid 70s.


Tomorrow: Partly sunny, with isolated to scattered storms. Highs around 91ºF. Tomorrow night: Mostly cloudy, with rain chances increasing later. Lows around 75ºF.

Your Tuesday definitely isn’t looking as good as today is, but it is still looking pretty decent out there.

With a low pressure system beginning to sag southward, we will be on the periphery of the ridge to our west. This provides opportunities for weak weather system to roll into the region and spark up some isolated storms, and cloud cover. Well, there looks to be some weaker batches doing this during the day on Tuesday.

Because of an increase in cloud cover during the day, I am only expecting highs to reach the upper 80s and lower 90s. I don’t think that rain chances are great everywhere, but I do believe that some will receive rain.

Overnight, a weak shortwave will move eastward across the lower Ohio valley. This will spark rain chances overnight, and will keep things cloudy for the most part.

Temps will fall into the mid 70s for lows.


Wednesday: Partly sunny, with scattered storms increasing in the afternoon. High of 89ºF. Wed. night: Cloudy, with showers and storms. Low of 75ºF.

Well, Wednesday looks to be a fairly interesting weather day across the region. A fairly mean shortwave is forecasted to beginning carving out a stronger surface low out to our west, beginning midday Wednesday, and continuing on into Thursday.

This will create an ideal scenario for clouds and rain to prevail across the region. While skies won’t be overcast, I do believe we’ll be in and out of clouds and showers for the better part of Wednesday, especially in the afternoon and evening.

This will keep highs in the upper 80s at the most, and that will help create an environment favorable for storms in the afternoon.

Overnight, the low looks like it will begin to get fairly wrapped up across our region, leading to some heavier rainfall threats moving across the region. Skies will be mostly cloudy, keeping temps in the mid 70s.


Thursday & Friday: Storms on Thursday; becoming clearer Friday. Highs in the mid 80s. Lows in the mid 60s.

The details on Thursday and Friday are a bit tricky right now, as the way the mid week low pressure system develops will have a large impact on how these couple days pan out. What I do see is cooler temps both days, but Thursday looks like there could be some storms, and the dynamics seem supportive of some severe weather. IF we were able to destabilize enough on Thursday, that would be a threat. Friday looks clearer as the low moves to our east. Highs will be in the mid and upper 80s both days, with lows falling into the mid 60s.

More beautiful weather for the weekend!

Today 7/31 – Mostly Sunny – High 88/Tonight – Clear skies – Low 68

Good Morning and Happy Friday! You can thank the lingering high pressure system for the lower humidity and clear skies over the area for the next few days. The high temperature today will be in the upper 80s and some areas could hit 90 degrees, however dew points in the low 60s will make it feel super nice out.

Surface pressure valid Friday 4pm (owxdata)

Skies will remain mostly clear of clouds into tonight and temperatures should drop to about 68-70 degrees. Don’t want this weather to end? Neither do I. Good news is the entire weekend is going to be beautiful!

Saturday 8/1 – Mostly Sunny – High 88/Saturday Night – Clear skies – Low 68

This forecast is pretty basic with sunshine and clear skies for most of the period. Once again the high temperature looks to be in the upper 80s for the region on Saturday with dew points in the low 60s.

Saturday night will also have mostly clear skies with low temperatures dropping just under 70 degrees.

Nighttime temperatures valid Saturday around midnight (owxdata)


Sunday 8/2 – Mostly Sunny – High 90/Sunday Night – Partly Cloudy – Low 72

Gee, this looks familiar. Expect the weather to remain mostly the same for the entire weekend since this high pressure system doesn’t look like it is going to move out anytime soon. High temperatures should remain between 85-90 degrees, dew points between 60-65 degrees, and skies will be mostly sunny!

It is definitely the perfect weekend to make outdoor plans. Have a good one!
