Bowling Green is currently 78 degrees with a south southwest wind at 13 mph. Storms are on the horizon for Bowling Green, as well as the majority of the Midwest today. Current radar shows that pop-up storms are starting to develop off to the west along and ahead of the cold front. Instability in western Kentucky is also providing enough lift for storms to generate.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed all of Kentucky in a slight risk and parts of Western Kentucky in an enhanced risk of severe weather. This means an increased probability of severe storms in this area of the state. Potential impacts include damaging winds, hail, heavy rain, lightning, and isolated tornadoes.
The storms are predicted to enter the region overnight, between 10pm and 2am. The HRRR Simulated Reflectivity shows a squall line in western Kentucky around midnight. Since these storms will be arriving in the middle of the night, be sure to have weather radios and devices programmed to alert in case of an emergency.
After the cold front passes, high pressure will move into the area providing a beautiful forecast for the weekend. High temperatures will be in the upper 60s and 70s this weekend with plenty of sunshine. No rain is expected for the weekend period. Prepare yourself for upcoming severe weather and enjoy your weekend!
