CODE YELLOW: Heavy Rains Expected Overnight

A few showers could pop-up around the mid-state this afternoon, but our Microcast model shows the heaviest rain to arrive in Nashville around 3am. Areas to the west of the city will see it sooner and areas to the east will see it later.  Some storms could be strong with gusty winds and heavy pockets of rain.  A few left-over showers could hang around as late as Friday night, so area high school football games might be wet.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky animal shelters could not use gas chambers to euthanize dogs, cats and other animals under a bill that passed the House of Representatives on Friday.


The bill's sponsor, state Rep. Joni Jenkins, D-Shively, said most of the state's animal shelters stopped using gas chambers about 10 years ago. But she said the purpose of the bill was to find those that still do and stop them.
