Severe weather looks likely later this afternoon. The best chances appear to be between 3 p.m. and Midnight. Damaging winds, large hail, heavy rain, and an isolated tornado or two are possible. The area at the greatest risk for severe weather in eastern Kentucky is in the Cumberland Valley, near the I-75 corridor. Keep it locked here for updates.
Kentucky's First Lady Jane Beshear read "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" to toddlers at the Perry County Early Head Start. This is part of the Kentucky Literacy Celebration
The Kentucky Literacy Celebration is focused on helping to increase awareness about childhood literacy.
Beshear says parents should read to their children because the learning process begins at infancy.
"Whether we are very young like these children today or whether we are very old, that the more we read, the more we know, and the more we know, the more we achieve," said Beshear.
The celebration includes trips to schools across the state.
