Some Storms and Cooler Weather on the Way

Real-Time Bowling Green Weather Radar:

Today  – Mostly Sunny; Nearly Hot – High 84º / Tonight – Increasing Clouds; Cool – Low 62º

6am 62º – 9am 72º – 12am 80º – 3pm 83º – 6pm 80º

There is a small chance for an isolated shower early this morning across portions of central and south central Kentucky. However, many will stay dry as any chance for showers diminishes rather quickly. Today will be mostly sunny, but unfortunately it will also be the hottest day we have seen in a while. While high temps in the mid 80’s are not unbearable, it is about time they migrate to south for the Fall.

Sunday – 50% Chance Thunderstorm – High 82º / Sun Night – 50% Chance Thunderstorm – Low 64º

Tomorrow will bring a chance for showers and storms across the area. A cold front will swing through late tonight into early tomorrow morning, bringing a small chance for showers to Bowling Green. However, with low instability during the morning hours, decent precipitation will be hard to come by. Storms will start to re-develop during the afternoon, mainly south of the Ohio River. How far south the storms developvalong the cold front will help determine where decent storms can set-up and who may receive a nice soaking rain. Most of the storms will not be severe, but a small chance for an isolated severe storm is still possible.

The NAM shows redevelopment trying to occur around the Bowling Green area. Exact placement of the precipitation on the model is not incredibly important. The cold front moving through the area will act to clear the area of moisture and instability. If it swings through earlier than expected, storm development may occur further south. Likewise, a slower moving front may lead to re-development farther north of the area. Moisture along and ahead of the front is not to impressive, so the rain and any storms should be spotty in nature.

Monday – Mostly Sunny; Nice – High 73º / Mon Night – Mostly Clear; Chilly – Low 54º

The cold front moving through Sunday will bring northerly winds to the area, helping keep the high temps in the low 70’s for Monday. Good news? I think so too.

Warming Up For Bowling Green Weather

Real-Time Bowling Green Weather Radar:

This Afternoon – Mostly Sunny; Gorgeous – High 82º / Tonight – Mostly Clear; Pleasant – Low 62º

3pm 82º – 6pm 75º – 9pm 67º – 12am 65º – 3am 63º – 6am 62º

Happy Friday to all! What a great way to end the work week on as plenty of blue skies and sunshine have made for one exceptional weather day. We can send our thanks and gratitude to the high pressure that is currently working eastward into the New England Region from the Great Lakes.

This feature takes full responsibility for the lovely conditions. The evening and overnight hours will be mostly clear and calm. Winds will begin to shift from our southeast resulting into milder overnight lows. In return, look for temperatures to drop into the lower 60’s as a calm night prevails.

Sat – Mostly Sunny; Warmer – High 83º / Sat Night – Partly Cloudy; Mild – Low 66º

The first part of weekend looks great. Will see winds begin to shift more from our south as some low-level moisture and warmth creeps back into the region. Mostly sunny skies will prevail throughout our day before some mid-level clouds builds across southern Kentucky by evening time.

Otherwise look for a nice day with a calm evening and overnight. With increasing cloud cover and southerly winds, expect lows to be mild as temperatures only drop into the mid 60’s.

Not bad, right?!

Good deal.

 Sun – Mostly Cloudy; Sct’d Showers & Storms – High 81º / Sun Night – Partly Cloudy; Cool – Low 56º

Thankfully the weekend kicked off on a nice note. By Sunday, our weather abruptly changes. We’ll what an upper level trough and surface low pressure swing through the Great Lakes Region. Its associated cold front will sweep through the region by Sunday morning/early afternoon.

In return, scattered showers and storms will develop and push through southern Kentucky. On a good note, this does not appear to be a washout. However, if you have any outdoor plans Sunday afternoon just keep an eye in sky and have a backup plan. Otherwise, look for any shower/storm activity to come to an end by Sunday night. Partly cloudy skies will stick around with cooler temperatures in the mid 50’s.

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 evening!

Nice Start to the Weekend

Saturday – Mostly Sunny; Warm – High 84º / Sat. Night – Partly Cloudy; Cooler – Low 64º

High pressure off to our north and east will help keep a southerly wind flow across the region for Saturday. This will pull warmer gulf air into the region, allowing temperatures to warm into the mid 80’s and moisture to increase overnight Saturday into Sunday. However, skies will remain mostly sunny Saturday.

Sunday – 50% Chance Thunderstorms – High 82º / Sun. Night – Slight Chance Thunderstorms – Low 56º

A cold front will pass through the region overnight Saturday into early Sunday. This will bring a chance for rain with it. The best chance for any precipitation will occur during the afternoon as marginal instability will be in place. The NAM puts moderate instability in our region, but the GFS seems to think there will not be much instability to work with at all.

The upper air seems to suggest any decent storms that fire will be to our north and east. However, the risk for severe weather does exist on Sunday. If the instability values from the NAM stay consistent over the next couple of days, a day 2 slight risk from the Storm Prediction Center would not be at all surprising.

And that about does it for today. Be sure to stay up to date with all your real time Bowling Green weather info @WxOrNotBG and @WarrenCountyWX on twitter. Have a great day!
