Memorial Day Forecast

Current Conditions:
The current temperature in Bowling Green is 71 with overcast skies.  A ridge axis stretches from Louisiana up into Manitoba, Canada which is effecting our area today as high pressure dominates our area today.  At the 700mb level, the ridge axis stretches from southern Mississippi up into Illinois indicating the High Pressure over our area.  Winds from the south are bringing in the warm Gulf of Mexico air into our area which will make for a muggy day tomorrow.  Current surface map shows the surface High centered over Michigan with winds coming out of the south at 5mph.  Due to the surface high associated with the upper level ridge, temperatures will be much warmer than yesterday.  Also, there will be few clouds due to the lack of moisture in the area.
Visible Satellite valid for 12:30 P.M. on Sunday, May 26, 2013.
The upper level ridge that is currently west of Kentucky will slide into the area tomorrow.  A shortwave trough will move through the area tomorrow, however, due to the lack of forcing, not anticipating anything with it.  Due to the winds coming from the south because of the wrap around from the high pressure, humidity values will increase tomorrow afternoon making it feel a lot more uncomfortable outside.  Surface high pressure will continue to move off to the east and a low pressure system out west will move off to the northeast causing the winds to increase from the south at 10-15mph.  The low tonight will be 64 and expect a morning low tomorrow of 59.  Your Memorial Day high temperature will be 88.  Due to the high humidity values, cannot rule out a possible pop-up shower late tomorrow afternoon.   

Monday (Memorial Day):  High- 88  Low- 59 with winds out of the south at 10 mph with partly cloudy skies.  Chance of precipitation- 10%

Tuesday: High- 86  Low- 63  with winds out of the south at 14 mph with partly cloudy skies.  No precipitation expected.

Wednesday: High- 88  Low- 62 with winds out of the south at 14 mph with partly cloudy skies.  No precipitation expected.
