The severe weather threat continues

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Rounds of fast-moving severe storms continue to work across Kentucky.

The storms have caused some wind damage around Frankfort and the damaging wind threat continues this evening, according to WKYT chief meteorologist Chris Bailey.

These storms are prolific lightning and rain producers. The excessive rainfall may cause some high water issues. Areas from Lexington to Louisville are under a Flash Flood Warning.

Because of the storm threat, the National Weather Service has put most all of Kentucky under a thunderstorm watch or warning. In the Lexington metro area, the thunderstorm watch extends until midnight. The watch ends at midnight for areas generally east of I-75, according to Bailey.

Looking ahead, the WKYT First Alert Weather team expects a few showers and storms throughout the next several days as temperatures decrease. No one day has a better chance of rain than the other, but temperatures this weekend should be around the 80 degrees.
