Fall-Like Stretch For Bowling Green Weather

Real-Time Bowling Green Weather Radar:

 This Afternoon – Partly Sunny; Pleasant – High 74º / Tonight – Partly Cloudy; Cool – Low 57º

3pm 74º – 6pm 70º – 9pm 64º – 12am 61º – 3am 59º – 6am 57º

It was a foggy start to our Wednesday and felt like the dreary conditions hung tough until late morning. Since then, the sunshine has made an appearance across southern Kentucky as a weak mid-level trough will work through the region this afternoon and evening. Some moisture is associated with this feature but will onlybring some additional cloud cover across the area.

In return, look for another Fall-like day for Bowling Green weather as highs reach the lower-mid 70’s. A good mix of sun and clouds can be expected for the remainder of the afternoon and evening before partly cloudy skies win out tonight. Otherwise, look for another cool one with lows in the upper 50’s.

Thu – Mostly Sunny; Nice – High 76º / Thu Night – Mostly Clear; Chilly – Low 50º

By late week, high pressure will continue to nose in from our northeast. This will bring plenty of sunshine across the Commonwealth as highs warm back into the middle 70’s for southern Kentucky.

The evening and overnight hours will feature calm and cool conditions. Winds are expected to go calm as skies clear out. This will set the stage for another chilly night for Bowling Green weather. Most folks should see temperatures bottom out in the lower 50’s as we’ll see prime conditions for another natural air conditioned night. So go ahead, raise those windows up and enjoy the cool sleeping conditions.

This guy certainly will….

Fri – Sunny; Gorgeous – High 79º / Fri Night – Mostly Clear; Cool – Low 60º

Friday arrives and the weather looks absolutely phenomenal. That’s right. You combine the end of the work week with gorgeous weather, you get awesome-ness. Yes, I just said that. Regardless, high pressure will continue dominating our weather as highs warm into the upper 70’s under sunny skies.

The evening and overnight hours will feature mainly cool, Fall-like conditions. Mostly clear skies will prevail as temperatures drop into the lower 60’s. If that tickles your fancy way too much, then take advantage of the weather and enjoy it. Which leads me to my next thought…


Friday 19th & Saturday 20th…..Location: Oakland, KY.

Awesome Bowling Green Weather is Awesome

Real Time Bowling Green Weather Radar:

Today 9/17 – Patchy AM Fog; Mostly Cloudy – High 74° / Tonight – Partly Cloudy – Low 53°

This morning we’ll likely be waking up to some patchy fog across the region. Be sure to use caution if you encounter any thick fog on your commute to work. The clouds will likely hang around the region due to the cooler than normal temperatures. Colder weather and higher sun angle can cause some pretty thick cloud cover. We saw this occur yesterday. It took a majority of the morning for the sun to finally peek out in Bowling Green.

The cloud cover will also cause our surface temperatures to be a little on the chilly side. However, we will be a few degrees warmer than yesterday. You can expect a high around 74° across Bowling Green and south central Kentucky.

Those pesky clouds will begin to burn off some in the afternoon and evening hours across the region. Thus, you can expect partly cloudy skies during the overnight hours with a low around 53°.

Thursday 9/18 – AM Drizzle; Partly Cloudy – High 75° / Thur Night – Partly Cloudy – Low 53°

Some morning showers and drizzle will be possible across the region to begin the day on Thursday. However, these conditions should quickly clear out of the region as a surface boundary continues to drift away from the region. A cold front will be looming to the north of the Bowling Green area. This probably won’t impact our weather too much for Thursday. Thus, partly cloudy skies with a high of 75° in the afternoon will be the forecast.

Thursday night will bring a drier air mass into the region, which should suppress clouds for the most part. Thus, partly cloud skies and a low of 53° look to be in store.

Friday 9/19 – Mostly Sunny – High 79° / Fri Night – Mostly Clear – Low 59°

Friday will bring more dry air into the region. Morning cloudiness will give way to mostly sunny conditions in the afternoon and evening hours. Temperatures will be returning to just below normal as we’ll see highs approach the 80° mark once more. I don’t think there’s much to complain about here. Did I mention it was Friday? Get hype…but don’t embarrass yourself.

Friday night will offer more stellar weather to the region. Mostly clear conditions will be found across the region as well as a low just below 60°.

That should wrap up this post. Be sure to follow @WxOrNotBG on Twitter for all the latest Bowling Green weather news! Have a great day!

Tuesday Afternoon Weather Update

Real Time Bowling Green Weather Radar:

This Afternoon – Partly Cloudy – High 72° / Tonight – Partly Cloudy – Low 51°

Good afternoon, cloud cover from the cold front that moved southeast across the state earlier is beginning to break up. The latest visible satellite imagery shows skies trying to clear across central Kentucky.

Behind this surface front, high pressure to our north will help to push these clouds out of our area this evening. Winds will turn to the north behind the front and a deep upper-level trough will keep our temperatures around ten degrees below normal today.

Tonight’s low temperature will be dependent on the amount of cloud cover we see overnight. Partly cloudy skies will yield lows in the lower 50s, but if we see more clouds than expected low temperatures could be a few degrees warmer.

Wednesday – Partly Cloudy – High 75° / Wed Night – Partly Cloudy – Low 53°

High pressure will really settle in to our north tomorrow and a beautiful day can be expected. Skies will be partly cloudy with afternoon highs reaching around 75º…perfect.

The axis of the upper-level trough dominating our weather will have shifted off to the east slightly, but we will still be in a northwest flow aloft, hence the below-normal temperatures. Calm weather will continue overnight as lows drop into the lower to middle 50s under partly cloudy skies.

Thursday – Partly Cloudy – High 77° / Thur Night – Partly Cloudy – Low 54°

Thursday’s weather pretty much looks like a repeat of Wednesday. Another beautiful day is in store with the only difference being temperatures a degree or two warmer as an upper-level ridge begins to nose in from the west. Check out the latest run of the NAM model which predicts a large ridge to be positioned over the central Plains on Thursday night.

This ridge is expected to keep pushing east on Friday. Looking ahead, temperatures look to reach 80º again by Friday with a few rain chances possible later in the weekend.

That’s all I’ve got for this afternoon, enjoy the weather this week and be sure to follow @WxOrNotBG and @WarrenCountyWX on Twitter.
