A Warm Week Ahead

Today: High 59, Low 45
Today is going to be quite a bit warmer than yesterday! The sun will be out for a good portion of the day and temperatures will warm to near 60 degrees. An upper level trough will work its way into the region by late this evening, bringing more cloud cover to the area by late afternoon. Rain showers will move across the region around midnight.

Monday: High 62, Low 38
Early morning clouds will clear out quickly as high pressure slides back into the region, bringing an even prettier day to the area. Temperatures will climb into the low 60's with sunny skies once again. High pressure can be a great thing this time of year!

Tuesday will be even warmer with sunny skies again. It's been a long time since we have seen a stretch of nice days like this.

Chances of Thunderstorms and Rain, Followed by Unseasonable Cooling

Currently in Bowling Green it is a beautiful 77 degrees with a SW wind at 8 mph. The past few days have been beautiful and springlike, but a rapid cool down is on its way and will continue through the weekend before temperatures warm back up next week. A cold front will be moving through the region bringing thunderstorms and rain tonight and tomorrow. A severe thunderstorm cannot be ruled out during the overnight hours tonight. Thursdays temperatures are going to rapidly drop, as we will see the days high temperature early in the morning. Rain is also on table for Thursday afternoon. If you are planning to go outside tomorrow, pack an umbrella and a jacket because it will be cold and wet. The rain will push out Thursday night and low temperatures in the mid to upper twenties will consume the region for the next few days. The weekend looks to be cold as well, with temperatures in the mid to upper 40s, but we will be seeing a warm up on Sunday through early next week.
