Real-Time Bowling Green Radar
Yesterday’s Bowling Green Weather was really, really nice. As in, late April/early May nice. We haven’t had a day that was that nice in a very long time, as out warm days in early November were too warm, and anything before that was just hot. But yesterday? Yesterday was nice. Highs made it to 75°F, besting the record of 73°F set last year.
Today: Mostly sunny, with highs around 47°F. Overnight, look for partly cloudy skies to develop, with lows around 32°F.

This is surprisingly a pretty interesting forecast! I am kinda intrigued by it, but only because the nuances of it are pretty interesting.
Before that, how nice was yesterday? I am incredibly sorry if you weren’t able to get out and enjoy Bowling Green Weather yesterday. It is rare that we have a 70°F+ temperature in the wintertime without the threat of severe weather, so that made yesterday even better!
But anyways. The current atmosphere is in a pretty active state, with a couple of shortwave troughs affecting the US. One is centered over southeastern Canada, and the other is currently entering into the northwestern US.
The one over southeastern Canada will continue to lift northeastward out of the region, leaving behind sunny skies today! As I write this, clouds are clearing on the satellite, and that is being backed up by surface observations. By the time you wake up, the only clue that it rained last night should be the wet pavement!
We’ll be experiencing convergence in the mid and upper levels of the atmosphere today, leading to a surface high pressure system moving into the region. This’ll allow for skies to remain mostly sunny, but it’ll get a bit cooler this afternoon than we’re used to.
The surface high pressure spoken of above will quickly move to our east as the shortwave across the northwestern US propagates into the central US, placing us in a favorable location within its jet max for precipitation by Wednesday night. The shortwave will also force a low pressure system in the southern Canada region, with a cold front extending towards us.
With this combination, I think we see clouds quickly increase on Wednesday afternoon, with light rain showers moving into the region on Wednesday evening. Now, the air mass ahead of this will be pretty dry, so any precipitation will have to overcome that. But with the forcing in place, I think that there is a good shot at some more rain.
By Thursday morning, clouds will quickly clear out, with sunny skies taking their place. Your New Year’s Weekend is looking pretty rainy at this point, with shortwave trough moving into the region by Saturday, forcing rainfall for your New Year’s Eve activities.
There is plenty of time for this to change, though, so be sure to keep up with the latest forecasts!
Today’s Key Points
- Bowling Green Weather has been active and continues to look active
- Rainfall is a good possibility on Wednesday night
- Sunny skies on either side of that precipitation, and cooler
- New Year’s Eve is looking rainy as of now
