CHRIS ALLEN'S EARLY MORNING UPDATE
Updated 4:16 AM Friday, March 27, 2015
24-hour First Alert Forecast 270-467-0373

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
A clear start with areas of patchy fog and freezing fog.
5am: 34° 6am: 33° 7am: 33° 8am: 36° 9am: 39° 10am: 43° 11am: 45°

FEELING LIKE FEBRUARY:
Time to pull out the winter coats once more! Unseasonably cold air is pouring into the region behind a front that gave us our first thunderstorms since October. Today brings us daytime temperatures about 15° below average, only topping out in the upper 40s with a mix of sun and clouds. A few light afternoon rain showers are possible - especially north/east of Bowling Green - as a weak upper wave moves through. We could even see some wet snow flakes mix with the light rain this evening as readings dip into the 30s but nothing significant is expected. Look for a hard freeze late tonight as skies clear. Lows will plunge into the low to mid 20s.

THE WEEKEND:
We stay quite chilly Saturday even with abundant sunshine. Highs will only reach the mid 40s Saturday afternoon. If you plan to attend the FEC Run/Walk at Basil Griffin Park Saturday morning or Lost River Music Fest at the BG Ballpark Saturday night, dress warmly! We'll have one more very cold night in the 20s before readings climb into the upper 50s Sunday. A weak system moving in for Sunday afternoon could bring us some showers to close out the weekend.

WARMING TREND:
Readings climb next week as a more southerly wind flow resumes. We'll go back into the 70s for highs to close out March and enter into April. Rain chances are in the forecast Monday morning and again Wednesday into Thursday.
