Forecast Discussion

**DENSE FOG ADVISORY until 9am**

First things first, use extra caution this morning with pretty dense fog being reported in the area. It is best to use low beams when driving, so give yourself a little extra time as you head out the door this morning. As the sun rises, the fog should begin to burn off.

There is a lot to talk about this morning! So let’s get down to business. It’s definitely a good idea to bring the umbrella and rain jacket with you today as we’ll see a few sprinkles move through the region this morning and plenty more of the wet stuff on the way later this afternoon.

The main story for today: the Storm Prediction Center has placed Bowling Green under a Marginal Risk for severe weather.

You’re probably asking yourself, what does this mean for Bowling Green? Well, this is not expected to be a very widespread event. But do prepare for some isolated thunderstorms to be strong enough to produce some very gusty winds and hail. With the likelihood of many folks headed home after the holiday weekend, it’s a good idea to exercise caution when traveling with blinding rain being likely on those roadways if you’re caught in one of these storms this evening. And hey, if you need an excuse to take down your holiday decorations, now is your chance!

Expect very unseasonably warm temperatures along with those showers this afternoon. As a low pressure system pushes its way through the region, southerly flow will be pumping warm, moist air into our area giving way to warmer temperatures and a very saturated atmosphere. This will also make our atmosphere more unstable and better primed for those storms to take off later today.

Scattered showers will continue overnight and into Tuesday morning. Temperatures will remain in the low 60s to start the day, but as the showers move out, the temperatures are forecast to significantly drop back to near normal.

By Wednesday, sunshine will return! But much colder temperatures will be in place. Our highs look to only reach the mid to upper 30s. This is Kentucky weather, you think we’d be used to the roller-coaster ride by now.
