Salvation Army finds gold coin in Owensboro kettle
Updated: 1:28 PM - Salvation Army officials got a big surprise when they opened a red kettle in Owensboro to count donations.
It was a great Tuesday all around the region. Many locations reported highs in the low and mid 60s... while some did hit the 70s. This happens again Wednesday, but this go around could become widespread over the entire region!
I won't dwell too long on the positives of this forecast because... well... there won't be too many more come our way. A cool front will drift into our region later this week. When I say "Cool" front I am simply saying that temps won't take a 30 degree hit. I'm thinking 15 to maybe 20. However, highs will still be in a comfortable area, hanging closer to normal than we have been with these really warm days.
As the front moves in it will spark a few showers and maybe even a few thunderstorms. I don't think it will be an all day event... these systems usually aren't. On Monday, we had a steadier flow of moisture coming in from a low located to our south. This time it's all moisture interacting with a front from our northwest.
I'll have more details on Wednesday.
