NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Mainly clear and cool.
6am: Mainly Clear 55°
8am: Mostly Clear 59°
10am: Mostly Sunny 69°

GETTING WARMER:
Readings climbed into the upper 70s Thursday afternoon under filtered sunshine. Expect the warming trend to continue as we wrap up the work week. With plenty more sun, highs today should climb to around 80 degrees. The weather looks perfect for high school football with mainly clear skies and temperatures dropping into the 60s tonight.

DRY SATURDAY, SOME RAIN SUNDAY:
We’ll start the weekend with a mix of sun and clouds along with warm temperatures Saturday. Highs will top out in the mid 80s, a few degrees above normal. Clouds increase early Sunday as a cold front drops in from the northwest. This system brings us a chance for scattered showers and a few thunderstorms late Sunday morning into the afternoon. Highs remain in the lower 80s Sunday.

NEXT WEEK:
Beautiful weather resumes as we officially enter into Autumn Monday. Fair to partly cloudy skies will rule through Thursday, with highs ranging from the mid 70s to lower 80s.

LATE WEEK WARMING:

Highs rise into the low 80s Friday and mid 80s Saturday. Overnight lows also climb from the 50s into the 60s by the weekend.

NEXT RAIN CHANCE:
Our next opportunity for showers and thunderstorms comes Sunday as a cold front moves through. This takes afternoon highs down from the 80s Sunday into the 70s Monday after the shower and storm chance moves out of the region. Quiet weather resumes as we kick-off the Fall season.

It will be a very cool start to the day with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s. A few areas of patchy fog are possible, especially near bodies of water. Expect a great-looking day with lots of sunshine and afternoon highs in the mid 70s.

LATE WEEK WARMING:
Temperatures slowly climb late week into the weekend as a more southerly wind flow takes over. We’ll have abundant sunshine Thursday and Friday before some clouds move in late Saturday ahead of our next weathermaker. Highs rise from the mid 70s Thursday to the mid 80s Saturday. Overnight lows also climb from the 50s into the 60s by the weekend.

NEXT RAIN CHANCE:
Our next opportunity for showers and thunderstorms comes Sunday as a cold front moves through. Some heavy rain is possible as the system will be packing remnant energy from Tropical Storm Odile. This takes afternoon highs down from the 80s Sunday into the 70s Monday. Quiet weather resumes next week.

NOWCAST THROUGH EARLY AFTERNOON:
Mainly cloudy with a few sprinkles possible.
10am: Mostly Cloudy, Sprinkles 65°
12Noon: Mostly Cloudy 68°
2pm: Partly Cloudy 71°

ANOTHER COOL SHOT:
A weak cold front is easing through South-Central KY with clouds and nothing more than a few sprinkles or a a few light showers. Clouds will give way to sunshine into the afternoon. Highs will top out in the low 70s once again. Clear skies tonight will send lows down into the chilly upper 40s to lower 50s.

GRADUAL WARMING:
Quiet weather continues for the rest of the work week into the start of the upcoming weekend. We’ll see a warming trend during this period with highs climbing from the lower 70s Wednesday into the low to mid 80s Saturday. Overnight lows will moderate from the lower 50s to the lower 60s.

NEXT RAIN CHANCE:
Our next opportunity for showers and thunderstorms comes Sunday as a cold front moves through. Some heavy rain is possible as the system will be packing remnant energy from Tropical Storm Odile. This takes afternoon highs down from the 80s Sunday into the 70s Monday.

Drenching Downpours Followed By Cooler Air

Posted on Updated on

Sept11blog

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain likely.
6am: Rain 75°
8am: Rain 74°
10am: Scattered Showers 73°

A STORMY START:
We are waking up to numerous showers and thunderstorms as a sharp cold front moves through. Severe storms are not anticipated but locally heavy rainfall is possible – especially north of Bowling Green through midday. Rain tapers off from northwest to southeast during the afternoon. Winds shift to the northwest, ushering in cooler air from Canada. Highs climb only into the upper 70s today.

COOLEST READINGS IN MONTHS:
An extended stretch of unseasonably cool, Fall-like air dominates the latter part of the forecast period. Highs will range from the low to mid 70s Friday through the weekend – some 10-12 degrees below normal for mid-September – with very cool overnight readings. Some outlying sections may see temperatures as chilly as the upper 40s Saturday night! A weak disturbance cutting through the area late Friday night might squeeze out a few light rain showers. Otherwise, the remainder of the weekend through early next week appears dry.
