Weekend looks cool, but nice

After a soggy evening overnight tonight, the current storm system should continue to advance on to the northeast, leaving clear and sunny conditions behind.  The weather over south central Kentucky was quite breezy and warm on Friday.  In fact, the high temperature soared all the way to 79, which is 15 degrees above the normal high for October 30th.  You have to go back to 2004 (82) to find a warmer high temperature for Bowling Green on October 30th.  Furthermore, the low temperature this morning (67) was 26 degrees above normal.  Winds were also quite steady out of the south all afternoon with gusts reaching near 40 mph.  But as the rains have moved into the area, the winds have shifted to the west, steadily dropping our temperature overnight.  It appears that the low temperature tonight will bottom-out in the low-50s.  We should receive about 0.75 inch of rain before the system finally moves out before sunrise on Saturday.

The low temperature tomorrow morning will hardly budge despite generally clear and sunny skies during the afternoon.  Continued steady winds of about 10 mph out of the west should keep the high temperature down in the low- to mid-50s.  Tomorrow night the winds will finally die down and allow for optimal radiational cooling overnight.  This will result in a very typical and chilly late October evening for your Halloween festivities, as the temperature should fall into the mid-30s.  And expect more of the same for your Sunday as the high temperature should climb back to the mid-50s with plenty of sunshine and light winds.

Enjoy your weekend, and have a safe and happy Halloween!
