Midnight Update:  Skies have cleared across Kentucky, with temperatures expected to fall into the lower 40s by early Thursday.  Thursday will feature mostly sunny skies with high temperatures back around 73 degrees.  Thursday will also be windy, with southwesterly winds gusting up to 35 mph at times.  A cold front will drop into Kentucky from our northwest, and bring rain showers and thunderstorms for Friday, especially for areas along and north of I-64.  Because of the extra clouds and rain chances, Friday high temperatures will be around 67 degrees.  Temperatures remain mild for the weekend, with a high of 70 degrees on Saturday, and 76 degrees for Sunday.
