First flakes of the year?

Cold front has passed through the area and a few sprinkles will hang around through this morning. Cloud deck will remain in place for much of today before dissipating into the evening hours as a high pressure center works its way in from the southwest. Chilly temperatures will result from the cold front passing, bringing our high temperature to only 45 degrees! Tomorrow will be a very nice day with the surface high still over us. Expect mostly clear skies with a rebounding high near 60.

Wednesday is where the fun begins. A strong low pressure center will move to the NE near Missouri from Texas Wednesday morning. Rain will take over the forecast area and last well into the night. A trough will ensue the area Wednesday night, with a deepening low pushing our way from Louisiana. Models are still not agreeing on the path of this low, but don’t worry. I’ll have frequent updates on what appears to be our first flakes of the year.

The precipitation Wednesday appears begin as all rain and take a turn to the frozen stuff when the night rolls around. As of now the forecast low for Wednesday night is only 35, we will keep a close eye on this. Bowling Green is in the range of 1-2 inches of the white stuff that will fall. However, the warm temperatures will provide rapid melting of most frozen precipitation that reaches the ground. Be sure to keep an eye on the skies as we edge closer to midweek.

Models display deepening low providing precipitation across the area.
