The day of the total solar eclipse has finally arrived and it appears we should be able to get a great view here in Southern Kentucky. However, it will be quite warm and humid with temperatures in the low 90s paired with muggy air giving us heat index readings in the upper 90s to around 100° at times! Please hydrate and stay close to cool air if you can while taking in the solar event.

A cold front approaches the region late Tuesday with a good chance of showers and thunderstorms - some of which may be strong to severe with a threat of damaging winds and large hail. Much cooler and less humid air filters in by Wednesday and into the upcoming weekend. There will be just a slight chance of a shower on Sunday as we get ready to give away the 2017 St. Jude Dream Home and 2017 GMC Terrain from Leachman Buick GMC during the live broadcast at 12 Noon!
