Drier Monday, Thanksgiving Preview

Good morning and happy Monday, folks!


Yesterday’s soaker brought us .86″ of rain here in the Bowling Green area, the highest daily rainfall total so far this month (Kentucky Mesonet). Today, we’ll get the chance to dry out a bit. Temperatures are going to be cool, with highs in the low 40’s, and partly cloudy skies. With drier air and clearer skies comes a substantial shot of cold air tonight, as temperatures will plummet into the lower 20’s. Brr!

We are keeping an eye on your Turkey Day Forecast as well- stay tuned for some potential rain.

Weather Fact! (Thankful Edition)

Let’s review some past weather records for Thanksgiving Day here in Bowling Green! In 1896, the Bowling Green area saw a high of 75 degrees, making it the highest max temperature ever recorded on Thanksgiving. On two separate occasions, in 1912 and 1950, the low temperature was a mere 15 degrees. (NWS Louisville)

I’ll leave you all with a bit of a teaser: Thanksgiving night this year looks like it may not be too far off from that record low temperature!

Have a great week everyone!
