Good morning, folks, and happy Friday!
For today, you can expect much calmer conditions than we had last Friday. Temperatures will push 50 degrees, with partly cloudy skies and 10-15mph winds. For tonight, clouds remain as temperatures drop to right around freezing. While the growing season has not officially begun yet, if there are any plants outside make sure they are brought in or covered overnight with the frost/freeze potential.
What to Watch For
Your Saturday looks to have similar conditions to today, with highs in the low 50s and partly sunny skies. However, rain chances will build overnight and last into Sunday. Rain totals look to be around a half inch for the area, as high temperatures Sunday will be in the mid 50s. Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday overnights look to bring more frost/freeze potential, with Tuesday night into Wednesday bringing hard freeze potential. This will be monitored as this could be one of our last cold snaps of the season.
Last moth we witnessed one of the warmest February’s on record. In fact, according to Extreme Weather Watch, the average temperature of 49.2 degrees F was the 2nd warmest ever for the Bowling Green area. This falls just short of the record set in 1932, where the average February temperature that year was 49.7 degrees F.
Have a great weekend (and spring break for my WKU folks) 🙂
