Owensboro, Kentucky

Today we embark on a trip to the Ohio River Valley, and take a peek at Owensboro, KY. What weather will greet this riverside community this week?

At 756PM CDT, the temperature at Owensboro, KY was 72 degrees under overcast skies. High pressure is firmly entrenched over the Eastern US, controlling everything from New England to the Deep South. Some low-level clouds have pushed in from the southwest this evening, but nothing ominous is expected to come from them. High pressure will continue controlling the area throughout the day Tuesday and well into Wednesday. Some shower activity could push into the region on Wednesday, but the suspect front should stay to the north and break up. Overall, a couple fairly pleasant days are in store for the shores of the Ohio River!
