A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
The man charged with starting a devastating fire in downtown Frankfort says he's not guilty.
Stephen Malcolm made the plea on Tuesday in federal court.
Investigators say he set the March fourth fire at Saint Clair Mall, which destroyed several historic buildings. Experts say the damage will cost more than a million dollars to repair.
Besides the arson charge, Malcolm faces a charge of lying to a federal agent.
His trial is scheduled to begin July 10th in Frankfort.
