High pressure and northwest flow equals cooler temperatures

The weather across Bowling Green this week has been quite tranquil with high pressure in place.  The big story has been the change in temperatures with lows in the 30s and highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s.  Monday of this week the the high was 74 degrees and last week (April 2nd) was 85 degrees.  That is a 11 degree difference in high temperature in a week.  The low temperature was even more drastic with a low of 63 degrees last Monday and this Monday low of 39 degrees.  This is a 24 degree drop in temperature aided by radiational cooling with strong high pressure in place and northwest flow.  As the high pressure moves to the east the area will experience warm up for the weekend with return flow around the high pressure. High temperatures will get back into the upper 70s to lower 80s and low temperatures in the lower 60s.
