NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Mainly clear and mild. Patchy fog developing.
6am: Mainly Clear 57°
8am: Mainly Clear 62°
10am: Partly Sunny 74°

WARM & DRY FINISH TO SEPTEMBER:
There will be little change in our weather pattern through midweek. September will end on a mainly sunny and unseasonably warm note. We will see an increase in clouds midday as a weak cold front dissipates across the area. Highs will climb back into the mid 80s with a few upper 80s possible to the west. Expect similar conditions as October begins Wednesday. Overnights will be fair with lows mainly in the mid 50s.

RAIN COMING LATE WEEK:
A strong cold front is slated to arrive Thursday night. It will likely bring with it numerous showers and thunderstorms along with our best chance at widespread heavy rainfall since August! Highs will reach the mid 80s once more Thursday before cooler air arrives Friday.

MORE FALL-LIKE WEEKEND:
Cool, Canadian air settles in Friday night into the weekend! Highs Saturday may not get out of the 60s before a bit of warming happens late in the period. Overnight lows will be quite cool, diving down into the 40s. The weekend appears dry at this time.

SEPTEMBER ENDS WARM:
The start of this work week will be much like the end of last week – continued warm and dry. Temperatures will be running at least 5-7 degrees above average for the next few days with no rain to speak of. In fact, this September will go down as the 5th driest on record for Bowling Green and much of South Central Kentucky.

WHERE’S THE RAIN?
October will begin warm and dry but a potent disturbance will finally bring some beneficial rain to the region by Thursday evening. Some of the rainfall may be heavy at times. Behind this system will be much cooler air for the upcoming weekend for the Rollercoaster Yard Sale. Highs will fall from the mid 70s on Friday to the mid 60s by Saturday. Lows will dip into the upper 40s early Sunday!
