Mundane Bowling Green Weather

Real-time Bowling Green Radar:


Yesterday’s Weather

From what I can see, yesterday’s weather was fairly stormy across the Bowling Green region. I am on vacation currently, and was driving all day with my family yesterday to get here, so I don’t really have a good grip of what went on. However, I can give you a climate report!

Because this is Saturday, and I am on vacation, and storms don’t look to be incredibly widespread, I am going to celebrate with a GIF forecast!

Considering I basically wrote the same forecast for all three days, you can see that this is a fairly boring and mundane forecast.

h/t giphy.com

This is largely due to a mid level trough axis being just to our west. This will create thunderstorms chances this afternoon and evening, as temps get into the mid and upper 80s for highs.

As we have seen recently, slow movement is possible with these storms, and they should be able to produce heavy rain and lightning as they move across the region. Overnight, look for the skies to remain partly cloudy, with lows in the mid 70s.

Sunday and Monday basically look to be the exact same as the few days preceding them.

We look to still be just ahead, or within the northwesterly flow component of the trough, which puts us in a good place to see small shortwaves and vorticity maximums rotate through and produce thunderstorms.

h/t giphy.com

h/t giphy.com

Isolated to scattered storms are possible both days, and highs both days will end up within the upper 80s. As always, lightning and heavy rain are the most likely threats from these storms.

I know a lot of you are tired of rain. h/t giphy

You can expect the overnights to feature partly cloudy, with lows in the lower 70s.


Extended Outlook

The CPC has us seeing above average temperatures, and near normal precipitation during the long term period.

Less Stormy Bowling Green Weather

Real-time Bowling Green Weather Radar


Yesterday’s Weather

Yesterday played out basically like I thought it would. I anticipated us having a few more afternoon thunderstorms than we did, but the temperatures were spot on! The Kentucky Mesonet recorded a high temperature of 83 degrees in Warren county. Fortunately for us, temperatures today will still be in the 80’s, instead of those nasty 90 degree days! What sweet relief!

Today’s rain won’t be quite like yesterday’s event, as there will not be any organized precipitation. Pop-up showers and thunderstorms are more likely across the region instead of organized lines of precipitation. Dew points will still be in the 70’s, so it might feel humid outside. There is still plenty of atmospheric moisture, though, so if we do get some sun during the day, an afternoon thunderstorm is definitely not out of the question.

For Saturday, a cold front will move through the area from the northwest, bringing showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will remain in the mid to upper 80’s, with overnight lows in the low 70’s.

Depending on how quickly this front pushes through the area, we could potentially see more showers and thunderstorms on Sunday. As of right now, though, it looks like we may only see a few isolated storms.

The next three days look very similar to each other; isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms across the region with temperatures in the mid to upper 80’s. I know this has kinda been a boring forecast, but sometimes boring is good, right?!

Extended Outlook

The Climate Prediction Center has above average temperatures for the region over the 6-10 time period. Some good news, though, is it looks as though we will be within the normal range of precipitation across the region. That’s good! I was beginning to think we all would need boats instead of cars to get around…

Storms Are A’Comin

Yesterday’s Weather

Rain, rain, go away… We had some nice little storms pop up near Bowling Green yesterday! Unfortunately, we didn’t have as much rain as I thought we might have, so our temperatures didn’t quite cool off that much. According to the Kentucky Mesonet, Warren county had a high temperature of 92 degrees. Luckily, we should see temperatures cool off a lot today and the next several days.

Flash Flood Watch until 7:00 AM Friday

A longwave trough has settled across the eastern portion of the US, allowing multiple shortwaves to move through the mid-levels. The main shortwave looks to move through today, and will allow for on and off showers and thunderstorms for the majority of the day. The main threat for these thunderstorms is torrential rain, gusty winds, and lightning. Because of these threats, the National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for the region until Friday morning.

Precipitable Water values are high, meaning that our area looks to see quite a bit of rain today. Make sure that you are careful and watch out for areas of flash flooding.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms look to continue into Friday as that broad, longwave trough remains in control. Luckily, though, with all this cloud cover and rain, temperatures are staying much cooler than last week. Highs for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday look to be only in the low to mid 80’s across the region!

NAM 4 km Temperatures, Friday valid 4:00 PM, via COD Meteorology

Unfortunately, Saturday looks very similar to today and yesterday; rainy and stormy. The aforementioned longwave trough looks to still be in control for Saturday, but will be on its way out for the second half of the weekend.


Extended Outlook

The longwave trough looks to move eastward during the second half of the weekend or early into the next work week. When it does, there won’t be as much moisture to pull from, so our rain chances should decrease to mainly isolated shower and thunderstorm chances. Heading into the middle to end of the work week, a ridge looks to try and settle into the area. This might push our temperatures back up, but decrease our rain chances. Only time will tell!
