The Details

Boy, do we have a wonderful weekend on tap, we just have to get through a chilly day today first.

Cold. Like, not make it out of the 40s cold. (Giphy)

A dry cold front moved through overnight, switching our winds out of the northwest and allowing chilly, almost winter-like temperatures to filter into the region. Thanks to the winds behind the front, it will be breezy at times today…and it’s going to be a cold wind. Even though the sun will be shining brilliantly…you’ll still need to bundle up.

Today: Sunny skies and a breeze with a high near 45º. At night, winds will calm slightly but we’ll stay chilly with a low right around 30º under mostly clear skies.

  • Wake up: ☀️ 32°
  • Lunch hour: ☀️ 42°
  • Afternoon plans: ☀️ 44°
  • Evening: 🌗 34°

Saturday begins the temperature improvement.


After a quite chilly start, with temperatures starting in the 20s in some locations, our winds will shift back to the southwest, allowing us to warm up just a little more than today.

How the hi-res NAM sees tomorrow’s highs. And I think they could be a little higher thanks to the full sunshine. (Pivotal Weather)

We’ll keep a slight breeze and mostly sunny skies so Saturday looks to be the pick of the weekend, so get out and enjoy it!

🇺🇸Tomorrow🇺🇸: Slightly warmer under slightly increasing clouds but otherwise mostly sunny with a high around 55º. Clouds continue to increase overnight, as we only fall to about 43º.

  • Wake up: ☀️ 32°
  • Lunch hour: ☀️ 52°
  • Afternoon plans: 🌤 55°
  • Evening: 🌗☁️ 47°

Skies will begin to cloud up ahead of our next (weak) weather system on Sunday that will throw some clouds and maybe a shower our way, but temperature-wise it should be similar to what we’ll see on Saturday. Unfortunately, the clouds will hang thick, with the sun breaks few and far between.

Sunday: Partly sunny skies with a slight chance of a shower in the afternoon. We’ll once again top out at about 55º. Showers still possible in the early evening before dropping back to around 42º under mostly cloudy skies.

  • Wake up: 🌥 42°
  • Lunch hour: ☁️/🌧 55°
  • Afternoon plans: ☁️/🌧 55°
  • Evening: ☁️/🌧 50°

The Bottomline

  • Sunny skies and cool for the day today and a very chilly night.
  • Clouds start to filter in on Saturday but we stay mostly sunny and warm up.
  • Sunday looks a bit cloudier but with similar temperatures and a chance for a shower or two.

That just about does it for me! Thanks for checking into wxornotBG this morning, and be sure to follow @wxornotBG and @WKUweather on Twitter and like Landon Hampton on Facebook for the latest weather throughout the day. Have a terrific Friday!
