|NAM 15Z (9 AM) 1/30/13 showing winds (kt), temperature (deg F), and mean sea level pressure (mb). Notice the wind change and stark temperature boundary over south-central Kentucky marking the cold frontal boundary.|
A line of storms associated with a strong cold front will quickly push its way through our area around 9 am. Precipitation should be relatively brief, but intense with amounts for Bowling Green likely to be .75 to 1 inch in total. Along with heavy precipitation, damaging winds will be a key hazard associated with the strong temperature gradient as the front passes our area. After the frontal passage, expect the rain to stop after lunch with a quick cool down Wednesday night as temperatures drop back below freezing for Thursday morning. The rest of the week will stay on the cool side with a mid-week update to cover the details.
