...Turning Dry Today......

All showers have exited the state with much less humid air filtering into the area. Other than a few showers across mainly the Bluegrass tomorrow, most look to remain dry for the weekend. The forecast for Eclipse Day still looks promising for a good view (partly cloudy with possibility of an afternoon pop-up), but it will be hot and humid. Pack some water!
