Storms Return to Bowling Green Weather

Bowling Green Weather Radar:


Today 9/2 – Scattered Thunderstorms – High 87° / Tonight – Isolated Thunderstorms – Low 68°

Some thunderstorms could be moving in and around the area in the early morning hours. These should diminish in intensity as the morning progresses. The thunderstorms will leave cloud cover across the region in the morning hours. This will have a great impact on our temperatures. Highs will be around 87°. We’re not quite through with the thunderstorms just yet…

The thunderstorms will also leave numerous outflow boundaries across the region. This could play a part in more thunderstorms developing in the afternoon hours. A frontal boundary will be moving into the region throughout the day from the west. This will help produce widespread showers and thunderstorms across the region. A few storms may be strong to severe with gusty winds, torrential rainfall, and vivid lightning being the main threats.

Thunderstorms should diminish across the region in the overnight hours. You can expect isolated thunderstorms with a low around 68° for tonight.

Wednesday 9/3 – Isolated Thunderstorms – High 90° / Wed Night – Partly Cloudy – Low 68°

High pressure will begin to settle into place across the region as the frontal system exits the region. Drier air will begin to filter into the region, which will help diminish thunderstorm chances across the region. However, I’ll keep isolated thunderstorms in the forecast due to any anafrontal precipitation behind the frontal system. Highs will rebound into the upper 80s and low 90s.

Precipitation should come to an end by the afternoon and evening hours. Thus, you can expect partly cloudy skies overnight with a low around 68°.

Thursday 9/4 – Isolated Thunderstorms – High 91° / Thur Night- Partly Cloudy – Low 70°

Upper level ridging will work back into the weather picture on Thursday. This means all storm systems will likely track to the north of the region. This will leave any significant widespread thunderstorm chances to the north. However, we could still see some isolated thunderstorms across the region during the heat of the day. Highs will be around 91°, and it will be humid. Summer again. Yummy.

Thursday night will bring diminishing storm chances as we lose energy from the sunlight. Partly cloudy skies can be expected overnight with a low around 70°.

That should wrap up this post. Be sure to monitor the above radar in the event that storms form across the region. If a warning is issued for your area, do not hesitate to take shelter. Be sure to follow @WxOrNotBG for all the latest Bowling Green weather details.

Hot dogs, Hamburgers and A Few Storms….

Real-Time Bowling Green Weather Radar:


 This Afternoon – Partly Sunny; Sct’d Storms – High 89º / Tonight – Partly Cloudy; Sct’d Storms – Low 71º

3pm 89º – 6pm 86º – 9pm 79º – 12am 75º – 3am 73º – 6am 71º

Good afternoon, folks. Hoping everyone is enjoying this wonderful Labor Day despite dodging a few scattered showers and storms. Afternoon conditions have been warm and muggy for Bowling Green weather as temperatures have jumped into the upper 80’s. Look for these uncomfortable and muggy conditions to stick around through the evening hours as we look to wrap up the holiday weekend.

A cold front will begin edging closer to the Commonwealth through the overnight period keeping the slight chance for a few scattered storms alive. Otherwise, look for partly cloudy skies over the region with mild temperatures in the lower 70’s.

Tue – Mostly Cloudy; Thunderstorms Likely – High 89º / Tue Night – Partly Cloudy; Stray Shower/Storm – Low 70º

As we tackle another work week, we’ll also be dealing with an increased chance for more storms by Tuesday. The latest NAM model guidance suggests a couple of rounds of the wet stuff. First round arrives by mid-late morning. This will be followed by a lull in activity. If the atmosphere can get back on its feet during this time, the afternoon storms could be on the stronger side.

One thing is for sure, the atmosphere will be juicy. Precipitable water values will rise near the 2” mark across southern Kentucky with decent instability nosing in. As the cold front tracks across the state, this boundary will interact with a very moist and unstable air mass. These ingredients will supply the spark needed for development across the southern Kentucky.

The latest SPC outlook outlines portions of south-central and eastern Kentucky under a slight (think enhanced risk) for strong-severe storms. This does not include Bowling Green.

The SPC does outline all of southern Kentucky (including Bowling Green) for having at least a 5% probability for strong, even severe storms within 25 miles of a given point.

Regardless, any development that does occur tomorrow will be capable of laying down torrential rainfall, producing gusty winds and dangerous lightning. The cold front will work through the state tomorrow night as a surface high pressure builds in. Activity will eventually clear the area as partly cloudy skies hang around with mild lows around 70º.

Wed – Partly Sunny; Iso’d Storms – High 88º / Wed Night – Partly Cloudy, Mild – Low 71º

The aforementioned front will continue its track across the region as a few lingering showers or storms hang around. All in all, look for slightly drier air to work in while temperatures remain on the warm side. Highs will reach the upper 80’s as surface high pressure builds into the Ohio Valley Region.

All rainfall should clear the area by the evening and overnight hours. Look for relatively calm conditions under partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will drop into the lower 70’s once again under partly cloudy skies.

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.

Labor Day Bowling Green Weather Forecast

Real Time Bowling Green Weather Radar:


Today 9/1 – Isolated Thunderstorms – High 90° / Tonight – Partly Cloudy – Low 71°

Happy Labor Day everyone! It looks like the weather will be pretty nice outside. With that being said, there is a chance of some isolated showers and thunderstorms. This will be due to the warm, moist airmass in place across the region. Isolated morning thunderstorms could also push out some outflow boundaries during the morning hours which could create lift for more thunderstorms to form.

Because the above variables are, well variable, we’ll stick with isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon hours. The wind will be breezy at times with speeds around 10 mph possible out of the southwest. Highs will be right around 90°.

Any thunderstorms that do form should generally decrease in coverage and intensity after sunset. Partly cloudy skies will accompany the overnight hours with a low around 71°.

Tuesday 9/2 – Scattered Thunderstorms – High 87° / Tue Night – Scattered Thunderstorms – Low 70°

A cold front will spark off thunderstorms to the west of the region on Monday night. The remaining storms will move east into the region in the early morning hours of Tuesday. Thus, a few thunderstorms will be possible in the morning hours. After that, skies should begin to clear a bit. As the aforementioned cold front approaches, more thunderstorms will likely fire across the region in the afternoon and evening hours.

Precipitable Water values will be pretty high across the region. In other words, the airmass in place is a very moist one. This will cause some of the thunderstorms to produce heavy rain across the region. With already waterlogged surface soil, some flash flooding is possible in those places with drainage issues.

Outside of the thunderstorms, we’ll go with a high of 87°. This is a few degrees shy of today due to the increased cloud cover and outflow from thunderstorms cooling off the region. Thunderstorms could continue into the overnight hours with a low around 70°.

Wednesday 9/3 – Isolated Thunderstorms – High 88° / Wed Night – Partly Cloudy – Low 71°

The cold front will continue to move across the region on Wednesday morning. This means thunderstorms and showers will likely start off the day, however conditions should begin to clear out behind the front. We’ll see drier air filter into the region, which will make conditions feel much nicer outside. Highs will be around 88°.

Wednesday night will bring drier conditions to the region. Under partly cloudy skies, you can expect a low around 71° in the Bowling Green area.

That should wrap up this post. Be sure to check out @WxOrNotBG for all the latest Bowling Green weather details. Have a great Labor day!
