Weather Wayback – The Bowling Green mastery

Well, since Anthony put together his forecast for Bowling Green back in early December, Bowling Green has received a lot of attention. A lot of weird attention. It wasn’t for weather on the 9th and 10th of December though, where high pressure kept things sunny and warm for the beginning of one of the final shopping weekends before Christmas. Before the national spotlight arrived in Bowling Green, Anthony compiled a very good forecast, within a degree or two of every verifying time, and edging out the rest of the crowd.

Bowling Green, Kentucky

Today we head off to Bowling Green! No, not that one. No not that one either. Yes! That one! The Kentucky one!

At 853pm CST, the temperature at Bowling Green, KY was 27 degrees under fair skies. There’s a bit of high pressure starting to work its way into the region and while it’s overcast off to the northwest, the clouds pretty much run out right as they get to Bowling Green. High pressure will slowly shift over the area for the next couple of days, keeping the region dry through the weekend. Not much to talk about, so get that Christmas shopping done!

Here we see the leading edge of some overcast clouds trailing off over central KY. These clouds should erode over the area going into the weekend leading to a fairly decent, albeit chilly, couple of upcoming days.

Bowling Green, Kentucky to Waco, Texas

It seems like most of the northern tier of the country is frozen under the worst arctic outbreak of the season so far, or is gonna get buried under a foot of lake effect snow in the next 3 days. Let’s go somewhere a little bit warmer! We’ll travel 821 miles from Bowling Green, KY to Waco, TX. It’s GOTTA be warmer than the -35 to -50 wind chills the Upper Midwest is seeing, right?!

DAY ONE

A ridge of high pressure is nosing its way into the Mid-Mississippi Valley while the center of it remains over the Dakotas. The tail end of a cold front has works its way out of the region and other than being a bit chilly to start the day (mid 20’s), it should be a quiet, dry day from southwest Kentucky past Nashville and Memphis and into Little Rock for the night.

DAY TWO

More of the same from yesterday it seems, with high pressure now dominating the central US. Mostly sunny conditons are expected for our trip out of Little Rock through Texarkana and Dallas, then eventually southward to Waco. Some increased clouds are possible as we get towards Waco, but nothing really to worry much about. Looks like the low 60’s in the early evening when we get there, sounds good to me!

Waco

Skirted

A system moved quickly from the Gulf of Mexico to it’s present location over the western Atlantic. As it passed, it had little time for Bowling Green, only offering a trace of snow on Thursday (which, ironically, was a day later than most had anticipated). Victoria-Weather was the only forecaster to call for any snow on Thursday, but also, we had the best temperature forecast for that lovely city. Go us!

Actuals: Wednesday – High 38, Low 21
Thursday – Trace of snow, High 47, Low 24

Bowling Green, Kentucky

After such a tumultuous end to 2010, we have such a pleasant (if cold) beginning to 2011. How long can this last?

At 153PM, CT, Bowling Green was reporting a temperature of 48 degrees with clear skies. The heart of the coldest air was found over the plains, and it was bleeding east towards the Tennessee Valley this afternoon, and tonight promises to be very cold for Bowling Green.
An upper level trough is coming into phase with a stronger jet along the Gulf coast. A clipper associated with the trough will merge with a developing system associated with jet over the northern Gulf. They will really only get organized into a unified system after they are east of Kentucky. That said, on the northern end of the Gulf coast system, some showers have a chance of clipping southern Kentucky tomorrow evening, with the southern system being the much stronger of the pair. Expect breezy conditions on Thursday in the wake of the wet weather.
Tomorrow – Rain/snow mix late, High 37, Low 20
Thursday – Light snow early, then clearing and windy late, High 38, Low 25

TWC: Tomorrow – Scattered flurries and snow showers High 40, Low 23
Thursday – Mix of sun and clouds. High 40, Low 27

AW: Tomorrow – Mostly cloudy with a bit of snow and rain at times High 44, Low 19
Thursday – Times of clouds and sun High 40, Low 26

NWS: Tomorrow – 30 percent chance of snow, mainly after noon. Mostly cloud High 36, Low 19
Thursday – Partly sunny, High 39, Low 27

WB: Tomorrow – Partly cloudy High 41, Low 19
Thursday – Partly cloudy High 39, Low 26.

One model, the NAM, puts nearly 100% chance of some sort of precipitation, but Weatherbug has none at all. Most interesting. Pretty quiet right now, though,
