LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – More locally heavy rain is possible late tonight into Friday.

Another wave of showers and storms can be expected while many are asleep.

Given the tragic nature of what occurred late Wednesday night and into early Thursday morning in parts of Southeastern Kentucky, it is important to stay informed with the rapidly changing weather conditions. If you see rising waters, seek higher ground immediately. “Turn Around, Don’t Drown!” The high humidity that we are all feeling is helping to enhance the rainfall totals And because of the slow-moving nature of this front, it has been a recipe for danger and where expectations for rain can easily be exceeded.
