Kentuckians will likely find Kanye West on the ballot for president this November. Earlier this year, the rapper turned possible politician announced his newest project would be a bid for the White House.

On Friday, West's campaign dropped off a petition with 19,000 signatures from registered Kentucky voters to the state's election board. Only 5,000 are needed to appear on the ballot and if there are enough valid signatures, West would be one of six candidates Kentuckians could vote for.

West would appear as an Independent on the Kentucky ballot. He will not appear on ballots in Indiana or Illinois but he has been approved for ballots in five other states.

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
