The Green River District Health Department is reporting a high amount of new positive COVID-19 cases within its seven-county Kentucky district for the second day in a row.

On Friday, 15 new positive cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in both Union County and Daviess County - similarly to Thursday's report, when those two counties topped the district's charts in new positive cases on what was the department's highest single-day increase in new cases to date.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
