.DISCUSSION...A cold front passed through earlier today, and we`ll
stay dry as high pressure dominates through Friday afternoon. We`ll
then enter a wet weekend with widespread shower and thunderstorm
at times. Friday night will be one area to focus on where heavy
rainfall and strong to severe storms will be possible, especially
across western KY and SW Indiana. After a relatively drier, Saturday
and Sunday, Sunday night will bring another round of widespread
showers and storms.
