Bowling Green Weather Afternoon Update

Bowling Green Weather – Real-time Radar:

This Afternoon – Mostly Sunny, Stray Storm – High 88º / Tonight – Partly Cloudy, Iso’d Showers – Low 64º

3pm 88º – 6pm 83º – 9pm 75º – 12am 68º – 3am 65º – 6am 64º

The first day of August kicked off on a warm note as temperatures soared into the upper 80’s this afternoon under mostly sunny skies. Surface high pressure takes on full responsibility for this wonderful weather but continues to weaken and work eastward across the Mid Atlantic coast. Go ahead, celebrate.

Nice footwork….

However, we will keep a slight chance for a stray shower or storm in the forecast for the remainder of this afternoon and evening. The good news is that any activity that does develop will be widely scattered in nature with nothing severe to worry about. However, for any cells that do fire, most will lose their juice by tonight as activity will wane with the loss of daytime heating and limited moisture. Otherwise, look for partly cloudy skies with lows in the low-mid 60’s.

Sat – Mostly Sunny; Iso’d Storms – High 88º / Sat Night – Partly Cloudy; Iso’d Storms – Low 63º

The first part of the weekend will be nearly identical to our Friday. Highs will top out in the upper 80’s for Bowling Green under mostly sunny skies. Once again, through the peak heating hours of the day, slight chances for a pop-up shower or storm will remain in the forecast.

Personally, Saturday looks to be the best chance for southern Kentucky to see some activity as moisture increases just a tad through the afternoon hours. A weak lobe of  vorticity will slide through the Commonwealth during this time providing some additional lift for development. However, chances seem slight at best for storms with no severe weather expected with development. Conditions will calm into the evening and overnight hours as any precipitation should weaken and dissipate. Lows will drop into the lower 60’s.

Sun – Mostly Sunny; Nice – High 85º / Sun Night – Partly Cloudy, Pleasant – Low 64º

Overall, Sunday will shape up to be a great day and nice way to end the weekend. A weak surface high pressure will develop across the region as highs cool just a bit into the mid 80’s. Slightly drier and more comfortable air will spread across the Commonwealth Sunday under mostly sunny conditions.

A warming trend will begin starting next Monday as winds begin to shift from our south-southwest. Highs will reach the lower, even mid 90’s by mid-week as plenty of warmth and moisture spread northward across the area. In return, hot and humid conditions will make a strong return as plenty of sunshine sticks around.

That does it for now, folks. Be sure to stay up to date with all your real time weather info @WxOrNotBG and @WarrenCountyWX on twitter. Wishing everyone a great evening!

Friday Morning Update

Bowling Green Weather – Real-time Radar:

Today 8/1– Partly Sunny / Iso’d T-storms– High 87° // Tonight – Partly Cloudy / Iso’d Showers– Low 63°

6am 61º – 9am 74º – 12pm 83º – 3pm 87º – 6pm 85º

Good Friday morning everybody! First day of August looks to be great weather wise. We have an area of high pressure that is continuing to move east and weaken over time, with that, expect temperatures to be a bit warmer than yesterday, highs in the upper 80s, with partly sunny skies. Here’s the surface map for 7am this morning:

This afternoon and evening may bring a stray shower or thunderstorm as we have some subtle upper level support moving through the longwave upper air pattern. These, however, should be fairly isolated and not contain any severe weather threats as our dewpoints and instability remain limited. Expect lows over night in the low 60s with patchy fog possible.

Saturday 8/2– Partly Sunny / Iso’d T-storms– High 86° // Saturday Night – Partly Cloudy / Iso’d Showers– Low 63°

The start of the weekend looks like a repeat of Friday’s weather; similar temperature profiles and sky cover will be likely with a slightly higher chance of precipitation as a weak mid and upper level are of energy moves through the trough which is positioned over the entire eastern side of the country. Although isolated showers and storms are possible, no severe weather is expected with highs in the mid and upper 80s. Thus, if the weather looks clear, get out and enjoy it!

Saturday evening should be relatively calm with northeasterly winds helping to drive overnight lows into the low 60s once again, with patchy fog possible. Any lingering precipitation overnight should diminish in coverage.

Sunday 8/3– Mostly Sunny / Iso’d T-storms– High 84° // Sunday Night – Partly Cloudy – Low 63°

Sunday will be another similar day weather-wise, isolated threat of a storm or a shower possible, partly sunny with highs in the mid 80s. Northeasterly winds are expected to continue which will help in maintaining lower dewpoint values and keep the atmosphere mostly stable. Good looking weather if you ask me.

Sunday night looks calm with partly cloudy skies and overnight lows in the low 60s, again, with patchy fog possible near dusk.

Overall, the weather the next few days will remain fairly behaved as we are still positioned within a large trough axis, as seen above, which will help to keep our weather relatively, well, boring. This is a good thing though, except some rainfall would be beneficial to our area. We’ll see what happens.

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. Have a great Friday!

A Nice Summer Day For Bowling Green

Real Time Bowling Green Weather Radar:

This Afternoon – Partly Sunny, Warmer – High 86º / Tonight – Partly Cloudy, Chilly – Low 62º

3pm 86º – 6pm 82º – 9pm 75º – 12am 68º – 3am 64º – 6am 62º

The stretch for below normal temperatures will continue for the last day of the month as the region remains under the influence of a stagnant upper level trough. Thus far, this feature has been solely responsible for the unseasonably cooler conditions. In return, we’ll add another below normal day to the forecast as highs this afternoon reach the mid 80’s under partly sunny skies.

The evening and overnight hours will be quite pleasant despite the stubborn cloud cover that sticks around. A weaker disturbance will continue its trek southeastward keeping the rain chances to our south and across the Gulf States. However, partly cloudy skies will stick around overnight with cool thermometer readings in the lower 60’s.

Fri – Partly Sunny; Iso’d Storms – High 86º / Fri Night – Partly Cloudy; Iso’d Storms – Low 64º

The surface high pressure will continue to weaken and work eastward allowing temperatures to climb a few more degrees Friday afternoon. A weak shortwave will work through the base of the stagnant trough as some upper level support will be evident. Much of the Commonwealth will remain rather moisture starved as dewpoint values struggle to reach the lower 60’s.

Despite the rather meager parameters for development, isolated showers and storms will be possible through tomorrow. Development will be hit and miss at best as activity remains widely scattered in nature. Storms that develop will offer brief heavy rainfall and gusty winds. Otherwise, look for showers and storms to diminish through Friday night with lows dropping into the mid 60’s.

Not bad…..

Sat – Partly Sunny; Warmer – High 87º / Sat Night – Partly Cloudy, Pleasant – Low 64º

As we kick of the weekend, a similar set up to Friday will be the case. The stagnant upper level low will hang around for the first part of the weekend as isolated showers and storms remain in the forecast. As mentioned previously, any activity that does develop will remain widely scattered in nature as main threats will be brief heavy rainfall and gusty winds. Outside of rain chances, look for a good mix of sun and clouds with highs in the mid 80’s.

The trough that parked itself across the eastern United States will finally break down and begin to lift towards the eastern coast. Ridging near the Mid-Atlantic will assure the exit of this feature as our Saturday night and Sunday will be calm. Overnight lows will be pleasant with temperatures readings dropping into the low-mid 60’s under partly cloudy conditions.
