Friday Forecast 11/18

Good morning, folks, and happy Friday!

Today’s Forecast

The dive into winter cold continues, and you are definitely going to need to bundle up when heading out today. High temperatures today will be in the upper 30s with a few peeks of sunshine. For tonight, the area experiences a real chill as temperatures drop into the upper teens with partly cloudy skies. Stay warm today!

What to Watch For

The weekend will remain cold as high temperatures Saturday will be in the low 40s, and even cooler Sunday with highs in the mid 30s. Both nights the area will experience lows in the upper teens as well. The good news, however, is that there will be sunny skies and calm conditions throughout your weekend. If you can brave the cold, go enjoy your weekend! We begin to warm things up next week with highs climbing back into the 50s.

Weather Fact!

If you think that it is starting to feel like winter around here, you should take a look at Buffalo, New York! The area is currently enduring a historic lake-effect snow event, threatening the area with potential for 2-4 FEET of snow. According to The Weather Channel, the greatest 1-day snowfall total in Buffalo is 33.9″, back on December 10th, 1995. Having a 1-day snowfall total above 20.5″ would place it in the top five. That is crazy amounts of snow to think about!

Have a great weekend everyone 🙂

Friday Forecast 11/11

Good morning, folks, and happy Friday!

Today’s Forecast

We’ve got quite a mess in store for our Friday. After waking up to the sounds of heavier rain overnight, conditions will begin to dry out a bit for your Friday. Expect highs to top out in the upper 60s, and peaks of sun after nearly an inch of rain falls. Tonight, temperatures will drop as much colder air works into our area for the weekend. Lows will be in the mid-to-lower 30s, as more rain overnight could end in a few wet snowflakes Saturday morning.

What to Watch For

The chance for the first flakes of the season in our area does exist for Saturday morning. Depending on how close those temperatures get to freezing, and how fast they drop, will determine how much snow is observed. The ground is warm and it will have rained before, but decent snow rates could put down a light coating on grassy and elevated areas. Above all else, our first taste of winter! The bigger story will be the significantly colder temperatures. Highs on Saturday will struggle to hit 40, and overnight lows will be in the mid 20s. Sunday looks clearer and a bit warmer during the day with mid 40s, but the clear skies at night allow us to potentially reach our coldest temperatures of the new winter season, with lows in the mid-to-lower 20s.

Weather Fact!

With the threat of snow tonight, it is important to remember that snow does not exclusively fall with surface temperatures at or below freezing. Layers of the atmosphere have different temperature profiles, and when the air is at or below freezing close enough to the surface, the snowflake may not have enough time to melt if surface temperatures are above freezing. Additionally, snowfall rates can cancel out melting rates, and high snowfall rates with surface temperatures above freezing can result in temporary accumulations.

Bring on the snow!! Have a great weekend everyone 🙂

Friday Forecast 11/4

Good morning, folks, and happy Friday!

Today’s Forecast

For today, you can expect a rather warm and sunny day, as high temperatures will top out in the low 80s. For tonight, clouds will build in as temperatures stay mild in the low 60s. Make some Friday plans as this may be one of the last warm Fridays we have!

What to Watch For

On Saturday, temperatures will just make it into the lower 70s as showers and thunderstorms build throughout the day. Additionally, winds will be high as the National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for the day on Saturday. Expect sustained winds between 15-25mph and gusts up around 40mph. Conditions will dry up Saturday night into Sunday, as temperatures recover into the mid 70s with mostly sunny skies and decreased wind.

Weather Fact!

On this date in 1959, there was a rare tornado in Alaska. According to the National Weather Service, “A small F0 tornado caused minor damage near Cape St. Elias Light Station on Kayak Island”. That’s something that doesn’t happen very often!

Have a great weekend everyone 🙂

Temperatures will be in the mid 70s with abundant sunshine, and some elevated winds between 10-15 mph. For tonight, skies remain clear as lows dip down into the lower 50s. Elevated fire danger does remain in place with drought conditions and elevated winds.

A few folks in the northern part of the state, around the Louisville area, saw their first snowflakes of the season this past week! While there were no flakes flying around here in Bowling Green, we have seen snow as early as October 18th, back in 1989 (NWS). Guess we will have to wait a little while longer for that!

Enjoy the nice weather, and have a great weekend everyone! 🙂
