Improving conditions today before rain arrives Wednesday; strong storm potential takes us into the start of the weekend.

The Details

Overall, our stretch of boring weather will continue for the next couple of days before things get interesting toward the end of the week.

I’ll take it.

We’ll spend the day under the influence of a high pressure system sitting over the Buckeye State this morning, that’ll give us mostly sunny skies and more pleasant temperatures than today.

Today: Mostly sunny skies with a high near 54º. Overnight, clouds slowly increase with a low somewhere around 40º.

  • Wake up: 🌤 39°
  • Lunch hour: 🌤 53°
  • Afternoon plans: 🌤 52°
  • Evening: 🌘 44°

We won’t be quite as lucky tomorrow.

A storm system is going to approach the area for the day tomorrow and that will lead to an increase in rain chances, especially in the afternoon.

While temperatures will remain steady, cloud cover will dominate the early part of the day with showers beginning to infiltrate the area during the mid-afternoon. They’ll begin to taper as we head into the overnight, leading into a much dryer Thursday.

Tomorrow: Cloudy skies with widespread showers in the afternoon and a high around 55º. Showers ending and clouds begin to decrease overnight with the low falling to about 45º.

  • Wake up: ☁️ 41°
  • Lunch hour: 🌧 55°
  • Afternoon plans: 🌧 56°
  • Evening: ☁️ 51°

Thursday is the day we sit in between systems and it’ll be quite the pleasant day.


Thursday will be a day not dissimilar to this one, with mostly sunny skies and temperatures well into the 50s. Certainly the pick of the week, because the next system that looks to impact us on an already busy Friday into Saturday lies on the horizon…but for now, enjoy the nice temperatures and sunshine!

Thursday: Mostly sunny skies return to the forecast with a high right around 58º. We’ll bottom out overnight around 40º as clouds slowly increase.

  • Wake up: 🌤 45°
  • Lunch hour: 🌤 55°
  • Afternoon plans: 🌤 57°
  • Evening: 🌘☁️ 44°

The Bottomline

  • Mostly sunny and fairly boring weather for the weather today.
  • Clouds filter in overnight with a chance for showers tomorrow afternoon.
  • Shower chances give way to mostly sunny skies on Thursday but clouds increase overnight and into Friday with the next storm system on the way.

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 Tuesday!
