We've got some good news and some bad news in the latest StormTracker Forecast. First, the good news. Today was picture perfect! And tomorrow won't be so bad either. The bad news - we won't be able to stretch these nice fall days into the weekend.

A system is developing across the Southern Plains that will spread heavy rain across central and eastern Kentucky beginning Friday night and lasting through Sunday morning. This very system has already brought snow to the Rockies. The panhandles of Oklahoma and Texas will be the next to see snow. Meanwhile, on the warmer eastern side of the storm, heavy rain and flash flooding will be possible across the lower Mississippi River Valley Friday. The rain will creep northward throughout the day and reach Kentucky by the evening. The soggiest time will be during the day on Saturday. Central Kentucky could pick up between two and three inches of rain; a little less for southeastern counties and some spots near the I-65 corridor could receive up to four inches. We'll have to be mindful of isolated flooding concerns given how dry it has been over the past six weeks. Showers will wind down on Sunday to reveal some sunshine before the end of the weekend.
