Wednesday Bowling Green Weather Update

Real-time Bowling Green weather radar:

Today, 5/27 – Partly Cloudy/Sunny; Afternoon Showers & Storms – High 84˚ / Tonight – Iso’d Showers & Storms – Low 63˚

Good morning Bowling Green! The wet, muggy weather we’ve seen the last few days is unfortunately going to continue into what Pierce called yesterday a “rinse and repeat” forecast. We’re stuck in a summer pattern with temperatures in the 80s and scattered showers and storms during the afternoon. Okay, that’s all you need to know.

But if you really want more, you can surely keep reading… The day should begin mostly dry, with partly cloudy to partly sunny skies. Rain chances will return during the afternoon, as disturbances in the atmosphere allow scattered showers and storms to pop up around the area.

Widespread severe weather is not anticipated, however, a few cells could end up meeting criteria. The biggest concern with any storm that develops will be torrential rainfall, strong winds and hail. It will be very muggy today, and any act of forcing should help fire off convection.

Temperatures should hit the mid-80s as southwesterly winds bring dew points around 70° – That’s muggy right there. These scattered storms will continue into the overnight hours with a low temperature in the low to mid-60s.

Thursday, 5/28 – Partly Sunny; Afternoon Showers & Storms – High 84˚ / Thursday Night – Partly Cloudy – Low 65˚

Thursday looks to be a repeat of today: Hot? Yes. Humid? Yes. Chance for afternoon storms? Yes. The main difference in Thursday’s forecast is that Thursday night looks to be mainly dry in our area, with more isolated activity off to our east.

Temperatures will once again hit the mid-80s during the day, with lows in the mid-60s overnight. I really wish I could say more because I’m starting to feel like a broken record here.

Friday, 5/29 – Partly Sunny; Afternoon/Evening Showers & Storms – High 86˚ / Friday Night – Sct’d Showers & Storms – Low 67˚

The way we are situated in regards to atmospheric flow is allowing for these recurrences of scattered showers and storms every day. Luckily, no severe threats are expected for the remainder of the week, and these pop-up storms do not look like they will produce any extreme rainfall.

They’re mainly just pesky, as we will have the chance for rain every day. And these humidity values aren’t doing a thing for my hair…

So on Friday… I think you can forecast this one. Temperatures look like they may be a degree or so warmer on Friday, with showers and storms picking up late afternoon, and continuing into the overnight hours. Storm chances will unfortunately pick up this weekend, so keep your umbrella handy, because you’ll definitely be needing it this week.

As always, stay in touch with @WxOrNotBG , @wkuCHAOS, and @WarrenCountyWx for the latest real-time weather info. Have a great day!
