Owensboro's Family YMCA had a sudden closure on Monday due to a natural gas leak in the boiler and several in their water heaters. 

The Y had to remove everyone from the facility until the leak could be fixed, and that fix took less than 24 hours.

The gas leak has now been sealed, and the gym is expected to be back open and running by 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday. 

There will be no childcare offered today by the YMCA, but evening classes will resume as scheduled.

Tonight it will be much colder with an overnight low of around 22 degrees, with a light north wind. On Tuesday, highs will only be in the middle 30's and then we throw in a chance of flurries overnight. Best chance of flurries will be along and north of I-64.
