Pleasant Monday

Good morning and happy Monday, readers!

Forecast

Monday is shaping up to be a nice day for us locally. We get a chance to dry out a bit from the rain this past weekend, and before the rain chances increase throughout this week. You can expect partly cloudy skies today, with temperatures in the upper 70’s. Tonight, we cool off into the upper 50’s as we prepare for storm chances tomorrow. Enjoy the nice day today!

Weather Fact!

Our average monthly rainfall in September here in Bowling Green is 3.93 inches (U.S. Climate Data). This past month we were above average, as we recorded 5.1 inches of rain (Kentucky Mesonet). That certainly reflects our rainy pattern!

Have a nice week everyone 🙂

Disturbance Brings About Precipitation Chances

Good evening, fellow readers!

As the weekend approaches, so does a disturbance to our west. For Friday, chances of showers and storms will remain isolated in the evening, but these chances will surge to become scattered as we move into the weekend. Thanks to the timing of the cold front, this will call for a rather split forecast, with Saturday having abundant sunshine and Sunday having overbearing cloud cover. From this, Saturday will have a high in the lower 80’s whilst Sunday will be a little cooler, with temperatures peaking in the upper 70’s. Nights will remain comfortable with temperatures lingering in the mid 60’s.

We hope you have a wonderful weekend!

A Calm Week

Happy Wednesday folks!

Forecast

Quite the calm week weather wise, as temperatures have been warm, and the skies have been clear. You can expect more of the same for the rest of the week, with highs in the mid 80’s and lows in the lower 60’s. If you are a fan of the warmth, get out there and enjoy it!

Weather Fact!

If you think the weather is warm in our area today, try and remember what it felt like two years ago today. On this date in 2019, the temperature locally reached 94 degrees! That’s quite the heat for this late in the season! This date a year ago in 2020 was more my speed, with a high of 67 and a low of 47. (Farmer’s Almanac)

Hopefully the cooler weather finds us soon, I want to wear my flannel! Have a great rest of your week, everyone 🙂

Good morning readers, and happy Monday!

What a pleasant and cool weekend we had! If you were a fan of the cooler weather like I was, I regret to inform you that temperatures will rebound into the mid 80s for the next few days. Along with those warmer temperatures, you can expect abundant sunshine for your day today. Tonight, you can expect more clear weather with temperatures dipping into the low 60’s.

Good afternoon, fellow readers!

Yesterday marked the official start to Autumn and the forecast has reflected the new seasonal trend rather well!

Feeling Like Fall

Good afternoon everyone!

Forecast

Stepping outside today is a treat! Temperatures are nice and cool out there for you today, not climbing out of the lower 60’s. Later this evening the lingering rain should clear out, allowing us to dry out overnight, and for the next few days. Overnight lows in the upper 40’s will have you waking up tomorrow craving a pumpkin spice latte! The weekend is shaping up to be a beautiful one, so go ahead and make those weekend plans!

Beware of Flash Flooding

Good evening, everyone!

By now, the cold front has reached our county, promoting chances of precipitation that will be widespread for the remainder of the night. As of now, the National Weather Service has issued a Flood Advisory until 11:45PM tonight, as heavy rainfall is likely with the developing storms. We may have precipitation totals of up to 2-3 inches by the end of the night! If you plan on driving throughout this period, be careful, as localized flash flooding is possible. Always remember: turn around, don’t drown!

Stay safe!

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Good morning everyone, and happy Monday!

Forecast

What a rainy pattern we have settled into! Today you can expect more of the same, with widespread rain and thunderstorms throughout most of the day. Remember, with the potential for locally heavy rain, be careful traveling and stay aware of the current weather conditions. As a result of the rain, temperatures will not climb that much, topping out in the mid 70’s today. Later this evening and overnight, we do get a chance to dry out a bit before our next rain chance tomorrow, with overnight lows in the upper 60’s. A drier and slightly cooler pattern is expected to set in later this week, so stay tuned for that!

Weather Fact!

On this day in weather history in 1811, the first documented U.S. tornado to take more than ten lives was recorded. This tornado took place in Charleston, SC, and was the result of a hurricane landfall in the area. (NWS)

Stay dry out there, folks!

Remnants of Nicholas Are to Blame

Good afternoon, everyone!

Today, we have had high pressure fighting off those pesky storm chances for our region of the state, leaving us with fair skies and rather comfortable conditions. However, the remnants of Nicholas will promote the return of a rather active trend into our weekend. For each day that remains in our week, storm chances will remain scattered. Our main concern will be once again with heavy rainfall, to which will bring about the potential for localized flash flooding. Other than that, high and low temperatures will remain uniform, peaking in the mid 80’s and bottoming out in the upper 60’s. If thunder isn’t heard, get outdoors and relax this weekend!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
