Chilly Rest of the Week

Good evening everyone. Hope you all are safe on the roads cause they are a bit slick out there! Current temperature in Bowling Green is 27 degrees with winds out of the northwest at 5 mph.
Winter is here to stay through the rest of the week with our temperatures struggling to get above the freezing mark.

Tomorrow's clouds will keep temperatures below freezing as high pressure begins to make its way in. Flurries cannot be ruled out tomorrow afternoon into the early evening hours though. A few rays of sunshine may make an appearance on Friday afternoon as temperatures will still struggle to raise above freezing with northwest winds. Our next disturbance looks to take shape Friday night. Accumulations look to be light at best. A dusting could accumulate Friday night into Saturday morning.

GFS 00Z paints a good picture of what one can expect. Light and scattered accumulations Friday night into Saturday morning. 

Which brings us to our next snow chance on Sunday. There's a few discrepancies between the models as you can see in the picture below. The NAM model on goes out to 84 hours so it is difficult to get an exact idea but going with persistence, a dusting to half of an inch cannot be ruled out on Sunday.

NAM vs. GFS model 00Z model run valid for Sunday morning at 3 AM.
Again, this does not look like anything too major, but be cautious of slick roadways this weekend before going out!
