Good morning, Bowling Green! As the weekend approaches, cooler temperatures move in for W.A.B.B.L.E.S., but at least there will be plenty of sunshine to soothe the soul!

Isolated Shower Chances This Evening

As we awaken this morning, temperatures across our region are in the mi-to-upper 50s. Temperatures will rebound quickly, however, and top out around 70 degrees or so this afternoon. Sunshine and some passing clouds will dominate the sky overhead, with shower chances holding off until late evening, as a front (responsible for the cool-down) bisects the area late tonight.

The Cool Air Arrives

After the passage of the front overnight, the cool air arrives as we move into Friday. Lows in the morning will have bottomed out in the low 40s, and by the afternoon, highs may struggle to touch 60 degrees.

The bright side? Well, at least there will be plentiful sunshine! Rain chances behind the front are simply non-existent, and the sky will be mostly clear, to clear. So folks, if anything, get out and enjoy the rays, and make the best of these cooler temperatures!

The Weekend Planner

SATURDAY: With the arrival of the weekend, it’ll be more of the same. A fairly clam stretch of weather will lead to a cool, but sunny October weekend in south-central Kentucky. As you awake to the new weekend, lows will again be quite chilly, bottoming out in the upper 30s. As the day progresses, temperatures will rebound of course, reaching the middle-to-upper 60s by mid-afternoon. Skies will be clear, and sun-filled.

SUNDAY: The back half of the weekend will again be an extension of the previous days’ weather, but with slightly warmer temperatures, and more numerous scattered cloud coverage overhead. Lows Sunday morning will be about 10 degrees warmer than the previous day, starting off in the upper 40s across most areas. Afternoon highs will be around 70 degrees, with a partly cloudy sky overhead.
