Real-time Bowling Green Weather Radar
Well, would you have guessed it!? It was hot again! See, if this was a game on “The Price Is Right” and you had to guess the weather on any of the past 6 days and then 8/10 days before that, you could easily win by saying it was hot. Because it probably was.

Well, the most interesting day still looks to be Saturday, so that means the discussion for today and Sunday will be relatively short!
Today, we are basically in a transition day. The trough that will affect us tomorrow is digging into the central portion of the US, and is beginning to form low pressure tendencies. The weak, leftover front to our north looks to move northeast as a warm front throughout the day, producing rainfall along it as it moves northward. We should miss out on that though. Look for partly cloudy skies, with highs in the lower 90s.
Overnight tonight, look for partly cloudy skies, with lows in the lower 70s. Tomorrow really does look to be the interesting day, though.
Probably the most interesting day we have seen in a long, long time. The trough I briefly mentioned before actually looks to be one of the stronger troughs we have seen dig into the central and eastern US in quite sometime. It isn’t quite extreme for this time of year, but it is an anomaly nonetheless.
This will force a surface low (as I was mentioning before) to develop in the upper Midwest, deepen and move to the northeast. Along and behind this, there will be a significant cool down, helping to establish a fairly strong cold front.
This cold front is forecast to move through the region tomorrow between 1 and 4 PM tomorrow afternoon. Along and ahead of it, highs will rise into the upper 80s. Interestingly enough, though, the dewpoints will be lower until the front approaches and passes through. 70 degree dewpoints look to congregate along the front, and a narrow band of instability looks to develop tomorrow afternoon.
So, what does this mean? Well, it is a bit complicated. I don’t think there is a severe weather threat with this system. I think we are going to see thunderstorms, and some of them may be strong! But I don’t believe severe weather will occur because of the narrow band of instability that may/may not be very unstable, and because of a lack of atmospheric shear. There looks to be no shear whatsoever tomorrow, or at least before the front. Despite this, the SPC has portions of our region in a slight risk for tomorrow.
If you do see severe weather, the highest threat is gonna be damaging winds. Overnight (post-cold front), temps look to plummet into the mid and upper 50s for lows.
Sunday looks spectacular.
After so many days of fairly intense heat, we deserve this so much. The airmass will be cool and dry, and it will just feel amazing outside. Look for highs to stay in the upper 70s across the region under mostly sunny skies.
Overnight, look for mostly clear skies, with lows in the mid 50s.
Interestingly enough, the long range is looking pretty good. The guidance isn’t suggesting a *significant* warm up across the region, but is suggesting we may begin to see some more cool downs come out way. Lets all hope so.
