Tonight the Mid-South has the potential of seeing some thunderstorms, a few of which may be severe. It’ll be quite breezy and warm for the rest of the afternoon for Bowling Green as a potent shortwave advances across the Great Lakes’ region during the day today. These southwesterly winds will help to destabilize the atmosphere, giving us a shot at some thunderstorms tonight. While we are under a slight risk for severe weather tonight, I don’t anticipate Bowling Green will see much of this as the moisture associated with this storm is concentrated further north in Indiana and Ohio. A squall line may develop as the sharp cold front passes through the area, but that’s a best-case scenario for severe weather over Bowling Green.
With this cold frontal passage, temperatures will drop dramatically this weekend as the winds will turn more westerly/northwesterly. We’ll only reach the mid-60s for high temperatures on Saturday and Sunday, with a low temperature Saturday night that may reach the upper-30s. Except for the cooler temperatures, it should be a fairly nice weekend though with mostly sunny skies.
