Weekly Outlook!

Happy Monday everyone! Or maybe not if you’re having one of those Mondays. Let’s take a look at the forecast for the week ahead!

Tonight: Clear skies with a low of 41 degrees.

Tuesday: Expect clear skies with a high of around 73 degrees with a slight breeze. Tuesday night expect clear skies, again, with a low around 40! Chilly! Isolated frost cannot be ruled out.

Wednesday: Clear skies all day and night. High around 70 and low around 46.

Thursday: Expect clear skies once again and some wind gusts up to 15mph. Thursday night expect a low of 48 and a slight breeze.

The week ahead seems like a nice and cool fall week. Hurricane Ian will be making landfall around Wednesday night in Florida. The models have it slowing down to bring flooding to most of the west coast before moving north. We could get what remains of it this weekend, depending on its track.

Friday Forecast 9/23

Good morning, folks, and happy Friday!

Today’s Forecast

Everyone is waking up to much cooler temperatures across the region as we are looking at a relief from the late summer heat. For today, expect a picture perfect day with highs in the low 70s with abundant sunshine and a slight breeze. For tonight, clouds build in with temperatures falling into the upper 50s. Get out there and enjoy the taste of fall weather today!

What to Watch For

This weekend we warm things up slightly, with Saturday and Sunday highs in the low 80s. A small chance of a few isolated showers exists for your Saturday, otherwise the weekend will be calm. It should be a great weekend to get out and enjoy the weather! Looking ahead to next week, the weather is looking absolutely beautiful with sunny skies and cooler temperatures like we have today. You might even have to break the jacket out a couple mornings next week!

Weather Fact! (Tropics Edition)

Today, for this segment, let’s focus on the activity in the tropics. It is September, after all, the most active month for tropical activity. First of all, Hurricane Fiona is moving just past the island of Bermuda as a high-end Category 3 storm with maximum sustained winds of 125mph. High winds and heavy rains are impacting the area currently, as Fiona tracks northward to Eastern Canada. An impending landfall in Eastern Canada is not common, but is not unheard of either. Landfall there will produce hurricane=force winds and heavy rain and winter precipitation. Elsewhere, there are two tropical depressions to track. Tropical depression 10 does not present any major threat now, as it is still far out at sea. Tropical depression 9, however, currently developing in the Lower Caribbean presents a much higher threat. Many forecast models have this system making landfall somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico, specifically Florida. Definitely something to keep an eye on as tropical systems have been known to occasionally impact our weather here locally.

That’s all for today! Have a great weekend everyone!

Weekly Outlook!

Welcome to the start of another week here in later September! This week the forecast has us starting off warm and ending with some cooler temperatures just in time for the weekend. Tonight, expect partly cloudy skies with a low of around 70 degrees, and a chance of a shower. There is a potential for fog tomorrow morning so watch out in those valleys!

Tuesday: Expect partly cloudy skies with a high of 92 degrees. Tuesday night will have a low of around 68 degrees and clear skies. Only a slight breeze is expected.

Wednesday: Expect it to be a hot day. Perfectly sunny with a high of around 97 degrees, some records may be broken Wednesday. Wednesday night we can expect a low of around 70 degrees and mostly clear skies.

Thursday: Expect cooler temperatures closer to the average temperature at this time of the year. Partly cloudy skies become mostly cloudy throughout the day with a slight chance of rain and a high of around 75 degrees. Thursday night, same old story, mostly clear skies and a low of around 50 degrees. Perfect for opening your windows! There is even going to be a slight breeze, perfect for a fall night. Which Thursday is the first day of fall what are the odds?

Friday Forecast 9/16

Good morning, folks, and happy Friday!

Today’s Forecast

As promised, the heat is in full effect today, with temperatures climbing into the upper 80s and full sunshine. Tonight, lows will be in the low-to-mid 60s, with mostly clear skies. A nice day, despite the warmth, get out and enjoy it!

What to Watch For

You could could copy and paste today’s forecast for the forecast this weekend, as both Saturday and Sunday will be filled with abundant sunshine and upper 80s. Same nightly forecasts as well with lows in the mid 60s and clear skies. Should be a calm weekend weather-wise. Looking ahead to early next week, the heat will really begin to crank up as highs next week could push 95 degrees. Stay cool, and stay safe!

Weather Fact!

According to the Kentucky Mesonet monthly summary records, last September in Bowling Green the highest maximum temperature was 87.3 degrees. If the current forecast holds, we could match or exceed that temperature every day for the next week! Definitely a warmer September than last year.

All this talk of heat has me exhausted, and ready for fall! Have a great weekend everyone!

Friday Forecast

Good morning, folks, and happy Friday! I am happy to be back for another year of writing for the blog. Let’s get right into the forecast:

Today’s Forecast

Today promises to be a bit warmer than the past couple days, with highs climbing into the upper 80s. Along with the warmth, there will be abundant sunshine. This evening and overnight, look for clouds to build as rain chances increase overnight into tomorrow morning. Lows will be in the upper 60s.

What to Watch For

Expect rain chances to persist throughout the entire weekend. While it will not be a washout, showers on Saturday turn to storm chances on Sunday. Rainfall will be under an inch, but look for some thunderstorms to produce heavier rainfall totals. We begin to dry things out at the start of next week with nicer temperatures, as highs early next week will be in the upper 70s.

Weather Fact!

On this day over 200 years ago, in 1821, the worst tornado outbreak in New England history struck (National Weather Service). Five tornadoes can be confirmed from the event, spanning three states: Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. This event is particularly uncommon, but not impossible, for this region of the country.

Have a great weekend everyone 🙂

Another Week of Storms

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope your week is going good as mine has not been the best. Anyways what’s the forecast looking like for the rest of the week? Through the rest of the week, we expect temperatures steady around highs of 88 and lows around 73 degrees. Thursday the threat of severe storms returns with a chance of scattered thunderstorms with a marginal chance of severe weather. The main threat will be heavy rain and damaging winds with thunderstorms developing in the afternoon, the thunderstorms will become more widespread overnight. Scattered storms stay in the forecast through the rest of the week.

In the long-term forecast, there doesn’t appear to be any major temperature change as we seem to experiencing the typical summer weather. Until next time!

Holy Hot Summer!

We interrupt our weekly wacky weather Wednesday with a current hot topic! Summer came in swinging fast and hard! These last few days have been in the upper 90s and with a heat index of over 100 degrees, we can expect a slight break going into the weekend but the heat will return early next week. The only chance of rain is a slight chance of a scattered thunderstorm Friday. I will also be moving wacky weather to Monday or Tuesday to help spread the blogs. This is another reminder that the 19th is Father’s Day! Stay cool and stay safe out there!
