According to National Weather Service, White Flag criteria may be met Thursday and Friday nights.

The Daniel Pitino and St. Benedict’s homeless shelters are currently not at capacity.

If capacity is exceeded during this impending cold weather event, Owensboro Christian Church will be open as a warming center, offering bedding from 6:30 P.M. to 8:00 A.M.

If a warming center is required, transportation will be provided from the Daniel Pitino Shelter to OCC at 6:00 P.M. on Thursday, December 24th, and/or Friday, December 25th. Those seeking shelter may also self-transport to the warming shelter anytime 6:30 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. either night. The White Flag shelter entrance will be between OCC entrances “C” and “D” on the New Hartford Rd side.

Families, women and/or children should contact the Daniel Pitino Shelter and men should contact St. Benedict’s (270 541-1003) to inquire if the warming center is in operation, or if there are available bed spaces within one of the existing shelters

The Daniel Pitino Shelter will also be offering meals:

Breakfast: Delivered to OCC at 7:00 A.M.

Dinner: 5:30 P.M. (at Daniel Pitino Shelter)

Due to the holidays, Owensboro Transit System busses or GRITS will not be available for transportation. Due to COVID-19, all protective measures (social distancing, masks, handwashing, quarantine) will be strictly enforced. There is an area pre-designated for quarantine if required.

Please contact Daviess County EMA Director Andy Ball with further questions.

We headed out to cloudy skies and some damp conditions this morning across the Tri-State. We've been tracking scattered showers for the first part of the day. While it’s been mostly cloudy, there will be some sunshine as soon as we get the rain out of the area. Temperatures are still expected to reach unseasonably warm values this afternoon. With some sunshine and winds out of the southwest highs should have no problem reaching the upper 50s and lower 60s. Clouds will clear out, but the southerly wind flow will keep overnight lows in the low to mid 40s. Tomorrow morning won't be all that bad considering it will be December 2nd.
