CLOUDS & SHOWERS MOVING IN:
After a dry Monday, our weather turns more active heading into midweek. Clouds increase this morning as a system moves in from the Plains. By afternoon, we’ll have a chance for scattered showers, especially over western sections. If you plan to head to the WKU football game at LT Stadium at 7, expect cloudy skies with a few showers around. The bulk of the rain – along with possibly some thunderstorms – holds off until late tonight into Wednesday morning. Highs remain warm, topping out in the mid 70s, with mild lows only around 60 tonight.
Much cooler air funnels into the region Wednesday as a cold front moves through. There will be a continued chance for showers Wednesday, with rain diminishing by Wednesday night. Highs fall into the upper 60s for midweek, with lows Wednesday night plunging into the 40s. It stays quite cool for the remainder of the week. There’s a slim chance for a shower Thursday, with Friday looking dry.
10K CLASSIC WEEKEND:
At this time, it appears dry for the annual running of the Medical Center 10K Classic Saturday morning. There’s a slight chance for a shower Saturday afternoon as a reinforcing shot of cooler air moves in. Highs stay in the 60s with chilly lows in the lower 40s.

MORE BEAUTIFUL WEATHER:
Wall-to-wall sunshine dominated our Tuesday and there’s plenty more sun on the way today through Friday. The warming trend that began Tuesday should continue through the rest of the week, as well. You may notice a few high clouds at times but any rain will stay well east of our area. Highs reach the mid 70s today with upper 70s likely Thursday and Friday. Overnight lows will be milder, falling into the lower 50s through late week.
A weak front moves in late weekend with just a slight chance for a shower on Sunday through Tuesday. It will be fairly warm late in the period, with highs in the 70s and lows in the upper 50s.

RETURN TO SUMMER:
Temperatures reached the upper 80s Sunday afternoon and look to stay there the next few days. For today, mostly to partly sunny and warm again with the chance for an isolated late day rain shower or thunderstorm. More of the same is expected for Tuesday and even Wednesday before potentially heavy rain chances rise again.
Wednesday night into Thursday morning look to be our best shot of rain with some heavy downpours and thundershowers likely. The increased cloud cover will send temperatures back into the mid 80s for Thursday before we warm up and dry out to end the work week.

WARM, THEN WET:
Readings got back into the 80s for the first time in a week Wednesday with the aid of more sunshine. Today’s weather looks similar to Wednesday’s with partly sunny and warm conditions. There remains a slight chance for a few scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly in the afternoon. Highs will reach the lower 80s with warm lows in the 60s tonight.
STORMY, THEN COOLER:
Our next cold front arrives Friday with widespread showers and thunderstorms likely. While organized severe weather is not anticipated, some storms could produce locally heavy rainfall. Chances for scattered showers and storms exist for Saturday, but everyone should dry out in time for Mother’s Day Sunday. Highs drop from the 70s into the 60s by late weekend.
Expect a slow moderation in temperatures under fair skies next week. Highs climb from the upper 60s Monday into the lower 80s Wednesday.

RAIN CHANCES INCREASE:
A slow-moving frontal system over the Mississippi Valley will continue to draw more moisture northward into our region today. Expect mostly cloudy skies with a better chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms – especially west of I-65 – this afternoon. With more clouds around, afternoon highs will be slightly cooler…topping out in the mid 70s.
MORE HEAVY RAINS POSSIBLE:
More widespread rain is likely for late Friday night into much of our Saturday as low pressure deepens over Missouri. Some heavy rainfall is possible during this period, with 1-3″ possible by Saturday evening. It will be a very cool Saturday with the rain around, with highs only in the upper 50s. Steady rain should taper off to showers by Saturday night, although off and on rain is likely into Sunday with daytime temperatures remaining unseasonably cool.
SLOW IMPROVEMENTS NEXT WEEK:
The weekend storm system will be very slow to move out. This keeps the chances for scattered showers and storms in play through midweek before we finally dry out late in the period. Highs climb from the 60s Monday into the mid and upper 70s by Wednesday and Thursday.

THE WARMUP CONTINUES:
Abundant sunshine returned to South-Central Wednesday helping temperatures warm into the upper 40s to near 50. Readings continue to climb for the final two days of the work week. We’ll warm into the mid 50s today courtesy of more sunshine and just a few clouds. An increase in clouds tonight keeps overnight temperatures milder. Good Friday may be a bit warmer still, however, shower chances return as a weak disturbance moves in. Highs should reach the upper 50s Friday.
For the first time in many days, 60 degree readings are showing up in the forecast for both Saturday and Easter Sunday. We won’t see rain the entire weekend, but it will be unsettled at times. Showers are possible Saturday afternoon and evening with an approaching storm system from the southwest. This system combines with a cold front to give us a good chance for showers and perhaps a thunderstorm mainly Easter Sunday morning. Rain should end from west to east early Sunday afternoon, with the weekend ending dry. Daytime temps will be more seasonable for the end of March, with mild lows only in the upper 40s Saturday night.

Mainly clear this morning with temperatures starting in the 30s.
MUCH WARMER FRIDAY:
After another chilly start, we’ll see mainly sunny skies today. That sun along with a breezy southwest wind warms us all the way into the upper 60s by afternoon. That’s over 20 degrees warmer than Thursday! This evening will feature partly cloudy and mild conditions with just a slight chance of a shower or perhaps even a thunderstorm in areas north of Bowling Green toward daybreak.
A frontal system easing southward from out of the upper Midwest will slowly push through South-Central KY late Saturday into Sunday. Saturday does not look like a washout, but we may have to deal with a few scattered showers and thunderstorms, especially by late afternoon. The likelihood for rain rises Sunday as that front stalls near the KY/TN border. It remains warm Saturday with highs in the upper 60s before readings drop into the 50s for highs Sunday.
SEVERE WEATHER POSSIBLE MONDAY:
Next week starts wet with showers and thunderstorms likely Monday. There may be enough instability along with wind dynamics to produce strong to severe storms Monday afternoon and evening. We dry out Tuesday, with much colder air coming back for the final full day of Winter. Highs plunge from the upper 60s Monday into the upper 40s Tuesday. More seasonable temperatures return for the opening days of Spring Wednesday and Thursday.

After a pretty nice Monday with warmer temperatures, a fast-moving storm system heads in today. Expect rain on the front end of this one, with perhaps a rumble or two of thunder through the morning. Breezy conditions will also accompany the system, with west winds gusting to near 25 mph at times this afternoon.
ONE MORE SHOT OF WINTER:
By late this afternoon, colder air begins to pour in as winds become northwesterly. Rain will change to light snow from northwest to southeast tonight, with light snow showers continuing into Wednesday morning. Accumulations will be minor, with a half inch or less for most areas west and south of Bowling Green. However, some areas – especially north and east of Bowling Green – could see up to 1″ of snow by Wednesday morning. Some slick travel is possible for the Wednesday morning commute, with readings dropping into the upper 20s to around 30. Highs Wednesday will struggle to near 40 with cold, northerly winds.
LATE WEEK WARMUP:
Our midweek cold snap will be short-lived. Look for a major warmup late week into “Spring Ahead Weekend”, with highs climbing from near 50 Thursday into the upper 60s Saturday into Sunday! Lots of sunshine is expected through the period before our next shot for rain Monday.

This morning there maybe a few sprinkles and wintry mix in the NW corner of the state, but SCKY looks to be dry through mid day. During the afternoon as temperatures rise into the 40s and 50s, scattered showers are possible before becoming more widespread during the late evening and overnight. A few rumbles of thunder are possible. Tuesday will bring the warmest temperatures during the morning hours, then a cold front will swing through dropping temperatures and changing the precip to a wintry mix/snow. Light accumulation looks possible the in the NE portion of the viewing area Tuesday night before it melts away Wednesday.
TASTE OF SPRING:
The second half of the week will bring a taste of spring as highs climb from the 50s on Thursday into the mid 60s for next weekend.
