We had a pretty nasty day out there today. It has been raining on and off for most of the day. Bowling Green picked up almost half an inch of rain today. Many places North of Bowling Green endured a persistent rain and snow mix. Temperatures will be dropping into the upper 20s overnight, so keep an eye out for slick areas on the road if you will be commuting tonight or tomorrow morning.
Today, high temperatures across the area were well below normal for this time of year. We hit our high temperature of about 49° early this morning and temperatures dropped throughout the day. Sounds like a good day to have stayed inside! Typically, high temperatures would be in the mid-60s this time of year. However, temperatures wise, this has not been a very typical year so far for South Central Kentucky or many other parts of the United States.
The good news is that the rest of the week looks a little bit brighter than today. Tomorrow will still be a little bit chilly for March with high temperatures in upper 40s as shown on the map below. However, the precipitation will be clearing out overnight tonight.
The rest of the week our high temperatures are for the most part expected to be in the lower 60s. We do have another chance for showers on Wednesday as a weak front moves through our area. Aside from that, our week looks pretty clear until Friday night and Saturday morning when we have another chance for showers. Once we get through tonight, this should be a pretty nice March week.
Tonight: Cloudy skies, a slight chance of rain/snow/sleet, a low near 28°, and winds out of the NNE at around 14 mph.
Tomorrow: Partly cloudy skies, a high near 48°, and winds out of the NNE at around 7 mph.
Tomorrow Night: Partly cloudy skies, a low near 34°, and winds out of the northeast at around 5 mph.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny skies, a high near 64°, and winds out of the south at around 10 mph.
