Storms rolled through on Friday afternoon and some were packing a decent punch. As the weekend rolls on... the chances of strong or severe storms will go down.

Storms developed to our west and moved into Kentucky during the afternoon hours. We actually had a severe thunderstorm watch posted for parts of our region and even a few warnings went out. Here we can view the storm reports.
