Rain on the Way

After a really nice day, we’ll end it with some wet weather tonight. Expect showers and thunderstorms to move in just before midnight tonight and stick around through the early morning hours. Rain totals will vary depending on where those thunderstorms track through the region producing heavy downpours for some. Most people can expect a quarter to a half inch of rain, but those in the heaviest downpours could see upwards of an inch tonight. October is typically the driest month of the year, but the recent rain has helped lift the burn ban for nearly every county in SOKY. Tonight’s rain will keep us out of the burn ban, but don’t forget that there is still a seasonal burn ban from 6AM-6PM through December.

Besides a very slight chance for a rain shower before the morning rush hour, Wednesday will be much drier, clearer, and cooler than Tuesday. Bowling Green will struggle to make it into the 60s, but as skies clear throughout the day, the additional sunshine should get us there. It’ll be breezy with winds out of the NW at 10-15mph. It definitely looks like the perfect day for sweats and a hoodie as you’re heading to classes on the Hill tomorrow. Keep in mind that the windy conditions could mess with the Homecoming Games at the Colonnades tomorrow afternoon especially if there are any events that involve throwing items back and forth.

Thursday will be a clone of Wednesday afternoon minus the windy conditions. Cool and sunny once again!

It will be nearly perfect weather for the students that are walking in the parade on Friday! Don those Homecoming sweatshirts/long-sleeved shirts and chant away for Dear Old Western and your favorite organizations as you walk alongside everyone that made it such a special week! Sunny skies and temps near 70 will make for a beautiful and comfortable walk to and from the Downtown Bowling Green Square.

Tonight: Low of 50 and High Chance of Rain.

Tomorrow: Skies clearing as the front moves East in the morning. High temp of 62 with windy conditions.

Tomorrow Night: Low of 38 with Clear Skies.

Thursday: High of 62 and Sunny, but temps will drop into the middle 30s before Friday morning.
