Rain and Strong Storm Potential Friday
A Bit Cooler to Start the Weekend. Chief Meteorologist Jeff Andrews Has Your Outlook
Rain moves into the area Friday. Depending on the track of the low, we may not see much rain. Heavier amounts look to be northwest KY-SE Indiana. Stronger storm potential will be western KY, southern Indiana and southern Illinois. The Storm Prediction Center has our viewers in a Level 1- Marginal Risk. Strong-damaging winds are the highest threat. Isolated tornadoes are not out of the question. West of I-65 has a higher threat (slight).
