Weather Discussion

Monday and Tuesday will be the nice days of the week as a high pressure system dominates our area bringing warm moist air from the gulf causing our highs to be in the low to mid 70s and lows in the low 60s. As a strong upper level disturbance progresses across the plains, clouds will increase Wednesday bringing with it a small chance of a stray shower.  Thursday is when we are really expecting the rain as the same upper level disturbance comes into the Bowling Green area Thursday morning bringing with it a potential severe weather threat.  Rain totals for Thursday can be between 1.25"-1.50".  Stay tuned to this blog as Thursday approaches for any severe weather updates.

Combined rain totals for both Wednesday and Thursday.
