Colder Temperatures are on the Way

Good morning everyone! Current temperatures are in the upper 40’s with the high to peak out in the mid 50’s today. If you enjoy the warmer temperatures, take all you can in today as there is much colder temperatures coming tonight and into this week. First, it is important to note a low pressure system moving into the Great Lake Region. With this system we will see some rain this afternoon/evening followed quickly by a cold front. The trends in the deterministic models have been trending down (for our area) to less precipitation, and unfortunately for you snow lovers, much less snow. Below is the latest run of the Global Forecast System (GFS) showing the line of showers moving into our area tonight before making the transition to some light snow due to the cold front associated with the low.

Overall, accumulations will be light with little to none here in Bowling Green. Besides the precipitation associated with this system, temperatures will drastically be changing. Cold Arctic air is expected to push in with the cold front and bring high’s in the 20’s and lower this week. To add, the cold air advection associated with the low will bring wind chills in the single digits for your Tuesday. All in all, bust out the heavy winter coats this week as it will be a very cold one.


Today (1/28): Mostly cloudy and breezy at times due to the system moving in tonight. High: 57
Low: 18
Tonight: Expect showers to begin this afternoon and into the early evening before transitioning to some brief snow showers.

Tuesday (1/29): Cold with mostly sunny skies. Keep in mind the wind will make temperatures feel much colder than they are.
High: 29
Low: 12
