Good morning, y’all! Yesterday, Bowling Green had a high of 51 degrees and a low of 42 degrees. To me, it felt kind of like a blah day, not very exciting at all. Considering how much warmer and wetter the next several days are going to be, though, I think I’ll reconsider how I felt about yesterday.

WPC Surface Map via NOAA, Valid Today – Saturday
An area of low pressure will move in from the southwest today, bringing a surplus of moist air into the area. We will likely see scattered rain chances this morning, followed by more widespread showers during the afternoon and evening. There looks to be a small window of time around noon where we will see a lull in the rain, followed by a period of heavy rain during the late afternoon and evening hours. Overall, I would expect us to see rainfall amounts ranging between 1-2”.
