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.
Lexington police are looking for a man who broke into a home and tried to rape a woman in broad daylight. The attack happened Friday afternoon at a home on Elm Tree lane.
Officials say the man broke into the 61 year old woman's home and tried to force himself on her. They say a friend of the victim stopped by the home during the attack and the suspect ran away.
Police say they are looking for a black man in his 40"s or 50's. They say he has black hair with some gray.
Police say they don't believe this attempted rape is connected to the break-ins and rapes that have happened near UK's Campus. They are still investigating.
