Day after day we have seen clear skies and unseasonably warm temperatures due the ridge that has been over our region. However, that is finally moving on, a trough is headed our way, and it is bringing a cold front with it. As shown below, that cold front will be making its way into our area from the west tomorrow morning, but the rain out ahead of it will get here tonight and stick around through tomorrow.
As shown in the graphic below, the SPC has categorized the areas to our west as being under a slight risk for severe weather tomorrow. Although this does not actually include the city of Bowling Green, we may still see some rather strong storms, and a chance for severe weather cannot be completely ruled out. The greatest threats with these storms will be very heavy rain, gusty winds, and cloud to ground lightning. So, take the necessary precautions.
Once that frontal system moves out of our area Friday evening, the cooler air mass behind it is really going to kick in and bring us some significantly cooler temperatures for our weekend. Saturday’s temperatures are barely going to make it into the 60s! This weekend is going to be our first real taste of autumn, so get out and enjoy it.
