For big game hunters, the clock is ticking to apply for the 2021 Kentucky Elk Hunt Drawing.

Kentucky has nearly 600 elk permits and the system gives those who apply an equal chance of being selected.

Applications cost $10 with the funds going to help support the state's elk management, research and public hunting access.

The deadline to apply is tomorrow at midnight ET.

Results of the drawing will be announced during a live event Sunday, May 15.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another abnormally mild day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing low pressure system and accompanying cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning.
