The University of Kentucky won their Sweet 16 game tonight, and in honor (or coincidence) of that victory, we are headed to Owensboro, a couple hours from Lexington.
At 1153PM, CT, Owensboro was reporting a temperature of 64 degrees with clear skies. Southerly flow is being seen across Kentucky, ahhead of a very rainy, developing cold front moving through southeastern Missouri. The trough parenting this low is quickly becoming detached from the broader flow aloft, and the boundary’s momentum will peter out over night.
The rain will instead arrive in Owensboro during the late morning tomorrow. It may at times be heavy, with an embedded thunderstorm. The low will shift northeast, rather aimlessly through the rest of the weekend. Flow will continue unabated from the Gulf of Mexico, and the continued cyclonic flow in the mid-Mississippi Valley will mean the continued threat for showers and storms in Owensboro. As the trough flattens out aloft, the feature will be more motivated to move on, with rain finally coming to an end on Sunday evening.
