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.
In addition to the shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there is also a push to shop local this Saturday.
For the second year in a row American Express has a national campaign to push holidays shoppers to buy local in their communities. Kentucky also has a similar program called Shop Downtown.
Business owners in Frankfort say it's a win-win for everyone.
"Those dollars that people spend locally help support jobs, diversity, choice, and they result in better, stronger communities," said a small business owner.
71 communities including Lexington will take part in the shop local program. The Kentucky Main Street program says holiday sales represent 75% of their total annual sales.
