HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible this weekend as a cold front sweeps into the area.

Tonight through Sunday night

Scattered showers and storms stick around into the evening; however, they will begin to fade away after the Sun sets. Another mild and muggy night is in store with lows falling into the upper-60s and lower-70s.

On Sunday, more showers and thunderstorms will be possible. The Storm Prediction Center has placed the entire region in a Level 1 Marginal risk. A cold front will bring showers and storms into the area, and some of those could be strong to severe. The primary threat looks to be strong, straight-line winds and heavy rain. The overall threat is low, but stay weather aware just in case! It will be warm with highs reaching the upper-80s and lower-90s.
