Tracking storms and much cooler air

Good Friday, everyone. It’s a big weekend of weather changes for Central and Eastern Kentucky. These changes will bring rounds of showers and thunderstorms, and much lower temperatures by Sunday.

Scattered storms out there Friday can put down some very heavy rain, and a few could be strong. This doesn’t mean it’s going to be an all-day rain, and we will have some periods of sun. Track away:
