NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Fair skies and very cold with hazardous driving conditions due to sleet and snow covered roadways and black ice.
6am: Partly Cloudy 13°
8am: Partly Sunny 17°
10am: Partly Sunny 24°

WINTER STORM EXITS:
Our biggest winter storm in several years – one that brought nearly 5″ of snow and sleet combined to Bowling Green – has moved out. Fair skies will take over through midweek, but we will remain unseasonably cold. Frigid temperatures greet us this morning with readings in the single digits for most! We’ll warm a little above freezing today with sunshine helping to melt snow/ice off many roads. Watch for refreezing on roadways tonight however, as readings fall back into the teens.

SLOWLY IMPROVING:
Moderating temperatures Wednesday into Thursday should go a long way toward helping our current snow/ice pack disappear. We’ll warm from the low 40s Wednesday into the mid 40s Thursday. By the end of the week, we should climb into the 50s. We may see an increase in clouds Thursday as a system cuts across the Deep South, but our area looks dry at this time.

SPRING AHEAD WEEKEND:
A weak weather maker slides in Saturday night, bringing just a slight chance for rain showers perhaps mixed with wet snow. We’ll dry out Sunday into Monday, with highs remaining seasonable in the 50s.

TODAY:
Partly Sunny, Not as Cold…High 37, winds NE-4

TONIGHT:
Partly Cloudy and Cold…Low 18, winds Light

WEDNESDAY:
Mostly Sunny and Warmer…High 44, winds NE-6
