A Rainy Start to the Weekend

Real time Bowling Green Radar:

Rain is on the way and it will be heavy at times. A rumble of thunder is even possible in some of the heavier downpours. Make sure and pack an umbrella as you head out the door.
The Weather Prediction Center is forecasting 1 - 2 inches of rain for the area.
WPC 2 Day Rainfall Forecast

We will reside in the warm sector of a stationary front today, allowing temperatures to warm into the mid 60's! Numerous downpours will also be a result and will lead to the heavy rainfall totals across the area.

The strongest surge of precipitation will arrive later this afternoon into the evening hours. The NAM simulated reflectivity shows a heavy swath of rain covering the entire area. This will persist into the overnight hours.

The heaviest rain will move out of the region by early morning with only a few scattered showers left behind. Still, pack an umbrella when heading out to the local Christmas parades. Temperatures will plummet throughout the day tomorrow! It will most definitely feel chilly by the afternoon.
