Colder Temperatures in the Forecast

Current temperatures in Bowling Green are in the upper 50s closing in on 60 before the cold frontal passage for tonight. Our low temperature for this morning's commute was a brisk 29 degrees because of our clear skies last night. Skies currently in Bowling Green are overcast keeping temperatures on the warmer side for now. The cold front intruding our way will be knocking on our door in the early morning hours of Tuesday. With this front comes precipitation, some of which may be frozen.

As the front passes Bowling Green tomorrow morning, look for temperatures to plummet into the low 30s. This may be cold enough for some snow to develop, but no accumulations are expected. Rain will most likely form ahead, changing to light snow with the front tomorrow morning.

This figure shows the HRRR model for early tomorrow morning. Current thoughts are temperatures will be above freezing with very light snow showers between 5:00AM and 9:00AM.
 Again no impacts are expected with this system. Fast forward into later in the week and we see cooler temperatures dominating Wednesday with highs only in the low 40s. Winds will turn southerly on Thursday warming our temperatures back up into the 50s.

Tuesday: High temperature of 39 with a low of 24. Sustained winds at 10-15mph with gusts near 35mph. Rain turning to snow showers tomorrow morning with no accumulation expected, then clear skies going into the night.

Wednesday: High temperature of 45 degrees with a low of 24 with clear skies. Winds turning southerly in the night.

Thursday: High temperature of 50 with a low of 35. Warming trend continuing into the weekend with southerly winds.
