12/6/11 MiddayUpdate: Big Time Rains Gone
If you’ll recall I mentioned the possibility of seeing 3-5 inches of rain possible with this last system. Thankfully, the system exited our region a little faster than expected which may have saved us from getting that kind of heavy rain.
Still, as the map above shows, we had another good soaking rain that added 3.5″ of rain here in Bowling Green and for many locations to our west. Lighter amounts were found mainly east of I-65.
The good news is the heavy rains are gone for now…and for a while. The bad news (if you so choose to refer to it as “bad”) is the colder temperatures. Daytime highs will remain in the 40s despite the forecast return to sunshine late tomorrow afternoon into Thursday, Friday and through the weekend. In fact, there appears to be a reinforcing shot of colder air arriving Saturday that may keep our afternoon highs only in the mid to upper 30s!
