Some storms briefly rolled through our area yesterday, but for the most part the trend over the last couple of days has been warm and a little bit muggy. A cold front that moved out of our area yesterday brought us a slight cool down that has made for more seasonable temperatures today and tomorrow. As shown on the map below, many places are 5-10° cooler right now than they were at this time yesterday. However, that hot muggy weather will be returning for your Memorial Day.
Today and tomorrow, high temperatures across Warren County are expected to reach around 80°, which is right on par with normal for this time of year. However, a more southerly flow is going to bring some warmer and slightly more humid air into our area. On Sunday, high temperatures are expected to rise into the mid-80s. However, Monday is when this warm up really kicks in with high temperatures that will be flirting with 90° in many parts of our area.
Overall, Memorial Day weekend in Bowling Green looks to be warm and mild with plenty of sunshine and fairly calm winds. A center of high pressure is going to be located to our north, as shown on the map below, which will keep our area in sunshine most of the weekend. This is going to be great weather to be outside grilling and relaxing with friends and family. Just make sure you keep plenty of water with you to drink because, especially on Monday, you might end up breaking a sweat. It is starting to feel like summer!
