Scattered storms will develop into the afternoon hours and a few could be strong or severe. High winds and hail will be the main impacts.
Several people were forced outside on Thursday morning after an apartment building fire.
The fire broke out at around 10:30 at Lexington's Fayette Crossing Apartments on East Reynolds road.
People reported seeing smoke coming from a basement apartment. Fire crews rushed in to make sure no one was inside that unit. They say it was vacant.
Firefighters say the fire started on a mattress in that apartment and say the fire is suspicious because no one lived there.
That apartment suffered some damage, but surrounding apartments were not damaged, but will likely be a little smokey.
Fire investigators are now looking into the cause.
