A Severe Thunderstorm Watch
is in effect until 3 a.m. Saturday for Harrison, Scott, Fayette, Woodford, Franklin, Anderson, Mercer, Boyle, Casey, Russell, Lincoln, Jessamine, Garrard, Madison, Bourbon, Clark, and Nicholas Counties.
A squall line with strong to severe thunderstorms will accompany a strong cold front overnight.
The arrival of this line of showers and storms will move into our northwest counties (Owen, Franklin, & Anderson) around midnight.
It will slide southeast across central Kentucky, including Lexington, between 2am - 4am, before pushing into our southeast counties between 4am - 8am.
The main concern with this line of storms will be damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph and dangerous lightning.
A few showers may linger into the afternoon Saturday, especially in southeast Kentucky.
The UK vs. Kent State game tomorrow afternoon/evening should shape up nicely with noticeably cooler temps in the upper 70s.
The below average temperatures and dry conditions will hang around for most of the work week.
