BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Monday and Tuesday were cold with abundant sunshine. We trade that with some high thin clouds and breezy winds that will allow warmer air to move in for the middle of the work week!

We’ll have a mix of sun and clouds today with high thin clouds - so expect sunshine for much of the day that will filter through most of the cloud cover. Southwest winds could gust 20-30mph Wednesday afternoon, but those winds will propel readings into the mild lower 50s, a few degrees above normal! We stay dry and mild through Wednesday night under partly cloudy skies.

A weak disturbance cuts through the region Thursday. Expect mostly cloudy skies with a few sprinkles possible, perhaps a light shower to the north. Highs back off a bit into the upper 40s Thursday afternoon. That marks the start of a colder trend which will carry us into the weekend!

An Alberta Clipper system is forecast to dive southeastward out of the Midwest Saturday. This may bring some snow to the area Saturday into Saturday night, although at this time, much uncertainty exists as far as the system’s track along with moisture amounts. It will be cold this weekend, with high temps lowering from the 40s Saturday into the upper 30s Sunday. We stay cold through Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Monday, with some moderation in temperatures Tuesday.
