A Cool Weekend, Warmer Week Ahead

It's possible we could hit 90° for the first time this year by next Thursday!
It’s possible we could hit 90° for the first time this year by next Thursday!

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Partly cloudy with a chance of light rain along the Tennessee border.
6am: Partly Cloudy 47°
8am: Partly Cloudy 50°
10am: Partly Cloudy 56°

COOL IS THE RULE:
Readings struggled just to make the 60 degree mark in Bowling Green Thursday, some 17 degrees below normal! It won’t be much warmer today. A front moving through will reinforce the cool air mass into the start of the weekend. We may see a few isolated showers crop up Friday afternoon with a mix of sun and clouds expected. It will be breezy, with highs only reaching the lower 60s. Lows Friday night could flirt with record territory in the lower 40s (record low for Saturday morning: 40 in 1973). Clouds should keep temperatures just warm enough to avoid frost, however.

GRADUAL WARMING TREND:
Temperatures will remain below average this weekend, but we should see them moderate a bit. We’ll stand another chance for showers Saturday morning as a weak low cuts across the Tennessee Valley. Sunday appears dry at this time. Highs climb from the mid 60s Saturday to near 70 Sunday.

MAJOR WARMUP:
The warming continues well into next week, with mid 70s returning Monday before readings soar back into the 80s Tuesday into Wednesday. There’s even a chance we could come close to 90 degrees late in the period! Rain chances look nil through much of next week at this time.
