Prime Pumpkin Pickin’ Conditions

If you’re on any social media platform, you have most likely already seen a plethora of pictures about Fall and everything associated with it. From flannels to farm and orchard visits to Fall-flavored drinks, many people have been all about this first shot of Fall weather. And the good news for those people is high pressure to our west will keep conditions similar to what we’ve had. Better yet, that sweater weather will continue without the constant rain for at least the next few days, so you can enjoy those mid-week corn mazes without worrying about washing off your shoes before hopping back into the car.

For tomorrow, rain should stay south of the KY-TN border, but we will see our fair share of cloud cover here in the Commonwealth. After a mild morning start around 42 degrees, temps warm up nicely to near 60.

Wednesday will be a warm day, but not before we see temps drop into the mid 30s. The chilly morning start will give way to a much warmer afternoon with a high of 65. Sky conditions will also be improving both Wednesday and Thursday as the clouds move out, and sunshine makes a welcomed return.

Lows will be low on Thursday. For those using the bus in the morning, you’ll need to crack out the winter coat or at least go with the sweater-hoodie combo. This will especially be true for children. By the end of the work or school day, it will be just warm enough to take off the hoodie, but keep on that comfy sweater!

Tuesday: Low of 42 and a high of 59. Cloud cover will persist most of the day.

Wednesday: The pick of the week in terms of weather. Clear skies with a cold start but quickly warming to a high of 65.

Thursday: A chilly start in the low to mid 30s but warming up to the mid 50s later in the day.


With the temperatures making their way into the 30s, it would be wise to move the more delicate plants indoors. Patchy frost will be possible Wednesday morning and even more likely Thursday morning for those living outside the city limits.

Side note, this was our fourth Monday out of the past six that Bowling Green has received some amount of rainfall, so make sure to tune in later this week to see if the Monday wet streak will continue.
