A Wet Start to the Week

Friday September 14 Hurricane Florence made landfall as a category 1. There are parts of North Carolina now flooded with 10 feet of water. We continue to think and pray for those affected by the storm.

Hurricane Florence has now transitioned into a Tropical Depression and is making its way towards Eastern Kentucky where it will sweep up towards the Northeast. Bands from Florence will sweep across the western part of the state including Bowling Green.  While Bowling Green will receive rain, it won’t be much (less than a quarter of an inch).

GFS Total Accumulated Precipitation from Sunday through Tuesday

Unfortunately, the area will be muggy for the next few days as dewpoints stay in the 60s. Temperatures will continue in the low to mid 80s through Monday where it will then climb into the upper 80s and 90s to finish off the week.

SUMMARY:

Sunday will see a high of 84 and a low of 69 with showers in the afternoon.

Monday will reach a high of 81 with a low of 68 with showers and a chance for thunderstorms throughout the day.

Tuesday will reach a high of 87 with a low of 72. Skies will be clear with the exception of a few clouds left from Florence.

I hope everyone has a fun, safe week!
