Today 1/29 - AM Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Breezy - High 53° / Tonight - Mostly Cloudy - Low 30°
Showers are moving across the region as we wake up this morning. The latest high res models suggest showers could last through 8 AM or so.
These showers will form in response to a cold front moving across the region throughout the day. With the approaching cold front in place, southerly flow will really amp up, creating winds that will howl at 15-25mph through much of this Thursday.
Conditions should dry out as the cold front passes to our east early this afternoon. With that being said, I think we'll be stuck with cloud cover for much of today.
Highs look to be around 53° by around noon. Temperatures will likely fall during the afternoon hours, so be sure to have the jacket ready on the commute home.
Mostly cloudy skies will continue into tonight. A few flurries may be possible from time to time. Lows will be right around 30°.
Friday 1/30 - Partly Cloudy - High 37° / Fri Night - Partly Cloudy - Low 25°
Friday will bring clearing skies to the region, especially during the afternoon hours. The clearing skies will be due to some high pressure moving in from the north. Northwest flow at the surface and aloft will keep temperatures chilly though despite the sunshine. Afternoon highs will get to 37°.
Friday night will bring more partly cloudy skies to the region as well as lows in the mid 20s.
Saturday 1/31 - Showers - High 42° / Sat Night - Showers/Wintry Mix - Low 33°
Saturday will bring another weather disturbance to the region. This time it looks like moisture will overspread the region as low pressure develops to the southwest. A quiet morning will give way to some afternoon showers. The rain really looks to set in the region from then on. Highs will be in the low 40s.
Saturday night will continue the chance for a good soaking rain. However, with temperatures falling, a few snowflakes or sleet pellets cannot be ruled out from time to time. If temperatures fall a bit more than expected, then icing could occur. However, I'm not too concerned right now, so monitor subsequent forecasts.
It looks like all the fun might occur on Sunday. The temperature profile for Bowling Green looks fairly decent for some wintry precipitation. However, it's hard to get excited for a system in the 4 to 5 day range because of the variability in the models lately. If it were up to me, I'd like to see this setup when we're only a couple days out to really begin to get excited. It's just something to monitor in the meantime.
