Here Comes the Sun

Good evening, everyone! Are you ready for the sunniest day of the week? We are!

Tomorrow, high pressure will set into our region, bringing about an influx of sunshine. Because of this, temperatures will be on the rise with the high reaching the mid 60’s and the low dropping to the upper 40’s. As of now, no chances of precipitation are expected for the entirety of the day. However, an approaching disturbance will promote showers overnight and for the remainder of the work week.

We hope that you have a great week!

Gloomy Monday

Hello readers, and happy Monday!

Forecast

Today certainly requires warm clothes and a pumpkin spice latte! Temperatures actually peak around noon, as more clouds and cooler winds cause temperatures to drop throughout the remainder of the day. Peak temperatures will reach the mid 60s, but as the clouds and wind build, expect a drop into the mid 50s. Dress warm! Tonight, expect more clouds and cool wind between 10-20mph, and temperatures dropping into the upper 40s. Clouds will clear out for the most part tomorrow, with mostly sunny skies and warmer temperatures in the low 60s.

Weather Fact (Spooky Edition)!

With Halloween upcoming this weekend, let’s take a look at past weather records for Halloween here in Bowling Green!

With over 100 years of past records, there is quite a variety of weather for this day. In temperature, there has been a Halloween with a record high temperature of 87 (in 1922), and a Halloween with a record low temperature of 25 (twice, in 1925 and in 1954). Pretty crazy to see that record highs and lows for the day were set three years apart in 1922 and 1925! (NWS Louisville)

Next post I will discuss precipitation records for the day. In the mean time, have a great start to your week!

Another Beautiful Day!

Good morning readers, and happy Wednesday!

Forecast

Looks to be another pleasant day in store for us, as we continue to feel the effects of slightly cooler air from the dominant high pressure system. Today you can expect temperatures in the mid 70’s with low humidity and some clouds. Into tonight, temperatures do not fall as low as they have the past couple of nights, with low temperatures around 60. Tomorrow brings us a rain chance, so make sure and stay tuned for that.

Weather Fact!

While it has been chilly the past couple mornings, we have yet to dip low enough to see our first frost of the fall season. The average date of our first frost here in Bowling Green is October 22nd. (Old Farmer’s Almanac)

Enjoy the beautiful weather, and have a great rest of your week 🙂

Hello, Sweater Weather!

Good evening, everyone! That seasonal trend of plentiful sunshine, low humidity, and cooler temperatures will carry on into tomorrow, but let’s take a look at what to expect.

If you’re an early riser, have a jacket ready to throw on before stepping outside, as temperatures will linger in the upper 40’s. As the sun rises, temperatures will as well, with our high reaching the mid-70’s. With low humidity, calm winds may feel slightly crisp, though clear skies will offer enough warmth to make for comfortable conditions. Into the night, temperatures will drop to the lower 60’s with isolated chances of showers taking place into the overnight hours.

Have a wonderful week!

Chilly Start to the Week!

Good morning folks, and happy Monday!

Forecast

Gone is the warmth for today, this week, and potentially the fall season. A large dome of high pressure has established itself over the majority of the eastern half of the continental United States. With this, you can expect calmer and cooler weather than we have been dealing with this past couple weeks. Today is no different, with sunny skies warming up into the comfortable low 70s, and overnight lows chilly once again, in the low 40s.

Wonderful Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday, readers!

Forecast

Conditions out there for your day today will be warm, with highs in the low 80’s. Unlike our previous warm days, you can expect cloudy skies instead of sun. The warmth today will not feel as warm without the presence of abundant sunshine, so get out there and enjoy if you are not a fan of the warmer weather! Tonight, cloudy skies give way to partial clearing, as temperatures dip into the mid 60’s. We’ll keep our eyes on a storm chance for Friday, and a shot of much cooler air this weekend.

Weather Fact!

On this date in 2014, Bowling Green received over an inch and a half of rain. This rain was associated with the system that was responsible for an EF1 tornado in Clarksville, TN. (US Climate Data and NWS Nashville)

Have a great rest of your week, folks!

Marvelous Monday!

Hello readers, and happy Monday!

Forecast

The weather has been pleasant, yet warm. You can expect more of the same for today, with temperatures in the low 80’s and fair amounts of sun. Also for today, you can expect a bit of a blustery day, with winds of 15-20 mph. Overnight, there is a slight chance of showers locally, but most of the wet weather will stay off to the west where there is a marginal severe weather risk. Lows tonight in the mid 60’s.

Weather Fact!

Get out there and enjoy the pleasant windy day! 🙂

Goodbye, Gloom!

Greetings, readers! How is your week going so far? We hope fantastic! If not, this post will surely brighten your mood!

For the rest of the week, our region of the country will bask in high pressure, ridding of those pesky precipitation chances and that overbearing cloud cover. As we have an influx of sunshine, temperatures will be on the rise with temperatures peaking in the lower to mid 80’s for each remaining day of the week. Likewise, low’s will be in the lower 60’s. Our only concern for this period of time will be with early morning patchy fog, so if you plan to be out on the roads, be careful!

We hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!

Storm Chance Today!

Happy Wednesday, readers!

Forecast

Today we have the potential for some wet, and even stormy weather. Most of the day will be pleasant and nice, with highs in the mid 70’s and some sunshine. Later this evening, we do have the chance for some storms.

The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center has placed our area is a “Marginal” risk for severe storms. Keep an eye on the radar, and keep in mind this potential if you are planning outdoor activities or travel. Each of these storms will have the potential for small hail, gusty winds, and heavy rain. The storm chances decrease overnight, as mainly rain takes over, with lows in the low 60’s.

Be safe out there everyone, and have a great day!

Potential for Excessive Rainfall Tomorrow

Good evening, everyone! We hope you are having a great week so far!

For tomorrow, chances of showers and storms will remain in the forecast as a low pressure system propagates slowly through the eastern region of the country. These will be scattered for the start of the day, but will become widespread into the evening. Our main threats will be lightning and heavy rainfall, that of which will pose a threat for localized flash flooding. As shown below, the Weather Prediction Center has our county under a marginal risk for excessive rainfall.

That’s all for today! Have a great rest of the night!
