Cooler Temperatures in Store for Bowling Green

Bowling Green Weather / Real Time Radar:

This Afternoon – Partly Cloudy; Breezy – High 81° / Tonight – Partly Cloudy – Low 57°

3pm 80º – 6pm 76º – 9pm 73º – 12am 67º – 3am 62º – 6am 57º

Good afternoon, after a very busy weather weekend things will be quiet over the next few days. Temperatures this afternoon are around 80º with dew points in the upper 50s. Once again, we find ourselves in a pattern that is more similar to early fall than summer, but no complaints here.

The cold front that brought us a few storms over the weekend is now well to our south and behind it, northwest winds are responsible for keeping things cooler. These winds have made things a bit breezy today, with gusts up to 20mph.

 As we head into tonight, winds will become light and temperatures will drop into the upper 50s under partly cloudy skies.

Tuesday 7/29 – Mostly Sunny; Cool – High 78° / Tue Night – Clear; Cool – Low 56°

Expect another cool day tomorrow as we remain under the influence of an upper level trough.  High pressure will begin to move in from the west which will allow for less clouds than we saw today and high temperatures will struggle to reach 80º.

Another cool night is expected tomorrow night with lows in the middle to upper 50s. Be sure to remind yourself..it’s late July.

Wednesday 7/30 – Partly Cloudy – High 84° / Wed Night – Partly Cloudy – Low 60°

Our stretch of below normal temperatures will continue on Wednesday. Temperatures will be a few degrees warmer, but still cool for this time of year. Models have tried to show a few sprinkles during the late afternoon hours as a weak upper-level disturbance rotates through the trough, but we’ll keep the forecast dry for now as high pressure at the surface should keep rain chances out of here.

On Wednesday night, temperatures will drop to around 60º. Cooler than normal temperatures will continue on Thursday before a few rain chances return this weekend. For now, enjoy the cooler weather this week, it’s not often we get a pattern like this in July.

That’s all I’ve got for this afternoon. For real-time weather updates be sure to give @WxOrNotBG and @WarrenCountyWX a follow on Twitter.

Cooler Weather Coming to Bowling Green

Bowling Green Weather / Real Time Radar:


Today 7/28 – Partly Cloudy; Cooler – High 81° / Tonight – Partly Cloudy – Low 57°

A cold front moved through the region last night that provided us with a chance of thunderstorms. However, the Bowling Green bubble held strong. Today will feel much nicer across the region because of the frontal passage. Conditions will be much cooler and drier. Highs will feel nice in the low 80s, under partly cloudy skies. Yep, not a bad Monday at all with those highs scooting on out.

On Monday night, similar conditions will persist across the region. Lows will be in the upper 50s under partly cloudy to mostly clear skies.

Tuesday 7/29 – Sunny; Cool – High 78° / Tue Night – Clear; Cool – Low 55°

On Tuesday, high pressure will settle into the Bowling Green region, which will keep any rain chances in the area at bay. We will remain fairly cool as we are situated on the backside of a trough, meaning our upper level winds are from the northwest. Thus, highs will be in the upper 70s across the region under sunny skies.

Tuesday night will be downright chilly in some spots with lows in the mid 50s under clear skies. I’m not complaining.

Wednesday 7/30 – Partly Cloudy – High 84° / Wed Night – Partly Cloudy – Low 61°

On Wednesday, our upper level winds that are out of the northwest will be a little weaker here in Bowling Green. This will allow some warmer temperatures to develop across the region. However, still some nice weather is in store as we’ll only have partly cloudy skies. You can expect those highs to be in the mid 80s.

Severe Threat Over

The passing of this last complex of thunderstorms means our severe threat is over.  Storms really exploded along the south side of Warren County, with our neighbors to our south (Logan & Simpson County) getting in on the brunt of the action.  As the night progresses a cold front will advance to our southeast, allowing for much cooler, less humid conditions to take over.  Monday through Wednesday of this upcoming week looks to be splendid, with drier air and sunshine joining highs in the upper 70s – lower 80s.  Have a great night, and thanks for reading.
