Spring Temps Get Knocked Down, But They Get Up Again!

Those 70s across the region yesterday felt amazing! They also showed us that those spring-like temperatures are starting to show themselves (It’s about time!). Spring showers are on their way for the weekend but will not overstay their welcome. They will, however, help with our deficit of rain for the month just a tad at least.

Local Climate Report for Bowling Green, KY valid 03/28/19

Weekend Set-Up:

A frontal boundary to our north has stalled out across the OH Valley which allowed a couple of sprinkles to fall this afternoon. A low pressure will move into the Great Lakes region throughout the day tomorrow bringing more shower and thunderstorm chances for the early afternoon and evening hours. The instability ahead of the cold front looks good enough to support a line of strong to severe storms. The main threats associated with these storms are brief heavy rainfall, isolated damaging winds, and an isolated tornado is not out of the discussion. After the passage of the front, temperatures will dip into the mid-upper 40s for Sunday. Overnight lows Sunday will fall into the mid-upper 20s with a hard freeze in many areas possible. Make sure to take necessary precautions including covering up any outside plants that are exposed to the cold temperatures. There is good news regarding the temperatures, however, as we should see them start to recover over the upcoming workweek!
