Real-time Bowling Green Weather Radar
Yesterday was not exactly what I expected it to be. When I wrote my forecast on Wednesday, I was expected rainfall across the region, and for temps to be loooooow. Well, that didn’t work out at all. I busted by 8 degrees as the rainfall stayed far to our south, and didn’t really affect us. I apologize about that, and will learn from it for the future!

This is about to be a really interesting week, as people are either going to love the next few days of weather, or hate them.
I can promise you, I will hate them. Hahaha; I am not a fan of summer when it is actually summer. I hate the heat and humidity, but when it is the middle of October?? I hate Summer even more. But yet, here we are. Summer has made a comeback.
The pattern over the next few days is fairly simple. An intense low pressure system is affecting the Pacific Northwestern States early this weekend, and is associated with extremely strong flow at the mid levels of the atmosphere. To the south and east of this low, a responsive ridge is forming and being forced to build east, just to the south of the strong mid-level flow. This enhance flow is a function of a height gradient in the atmosphere, and a responsive temperature gradient.
This will help to force a fairly anomalous ridge in the mid levels of the atmosphere and at the surface. The high pressure system looks to be just to our east, setting us up for potential flamethrower conditions at the surface as we head into early next week.
So what does all of this mean? While this is a simplified version of the set up, it is pretty basic for our region. The ridge will build in starting Sunday afternoon after the pesky trough moves on out of here. Until then, anticipate partly to mostly cloudy skies, with highs in the upper 70s today, and lower 80s tomorrow. Overnight lows will be in the lower 60s.
Monday will be the warm day. Southwesterly flow looks to get kickin’ in the region, and will likely rocket temps into the upper 80s. Overnight, look for lows in the mid 60s.
Beyond the early week, there doesn’t look to be a ton go on this week. By mid and late week, we will likely be seeing a trough come through with a new cool down. So that is nice!
