Yesterday’s Weather

I hope everyone was able to enjoy their Easter although it was quite soggy. At least the rain made a great excuse to spend more time indoors with family and friends. Now Easter may be over, but these rain chances are not…

Our current radar shows that there is a brief lull in activity this morning, but don’t let that fool you. Showers will return not only today, but throughout this week. In fact we have a rain chance nearly every single day this week.

The reason for these showers from yesterday and now today? This cold front that is draped almost directly over Bowling Green and much of South Central Kentucky. It’s helped to spark off numerous showers and storms  as it slowly sags to our southeast, moving those showers out of our area with it.

As the cold front pushes through, our temperatures aren’t going to skyrocket like they have this past weekend. However, we will still remain mild with temperatures in the mid 70s. By this afternoon, our next disturbance will be knocking on our door with more showers, as shown by the latest HRRR model.

If you have any outdoor plans this afternoon, its probably a good idea to plan accordingly and grab the rain gear as you’re headed out. That rain gear will be getting plenty of good use too, as we have quite a bit of rain that will be falling between now and Wednesday. April showers are definitely in full swing!
