BRR!! It has been a chilly start to Thanksgiving today. With an area of high pressure over our area, the temperature fell to just 15 degrees overnight at the Bowling Green airport. The current temperature at the airport has now warmed up to 21 degrees (8:15) and light winds from the south today will help afternoon temperatures climb to near 40 degrees. High pressure will help our skies remain clear today and into overnight which will allow for another chilly night. Southerly winds will keep us a little warmer than last night, but temperatures will still fall into the lower 20's tonight.
Quiet weather remains on tap for southern Kentucky well into the weekend as a weak ridge positions itself over the southeastern United States. This ridge will allow for southerly winds to keep pumping warmer air into our area, and temperatures will gradually warm each day. Temperatures on Friday will top out in the mid to upper 40s, with clear skies again on tap. Friday night looks chilly as temperatures will dip into the middle 20s before temperatures finally surpass the 50 degree mark on Saturday afternoon. A very weak shortwave will move through the area Saturday, leaving behind a few more clouds than the previous days. Nevertheless, temperatures will reach the lower 50's on Saturday underneath partly cloudy skies. Increasing cloud cover should keep Saturday night's low in the middle 30s and by Sunday, another shortwave disturbance will produce mostly cloudy skies. The high temperature will be right around 50 degrees Sunday, and this shortwave disturbance will have a little bit more moisture to work with and could produce some light rain late Sunday afternoon or Sunday evening. Enjoy the quiet weather this Thanksgiving weekend!
