toe and did not speak at all during the robbery instead police say he pointed a gun and the clerk and he

made hand gestures and demanded money about 30 minutes before police say a man was robbed by a gunman on Appian Way the victim says he was walking when a man came up from behind pulled out a gun and stole his wallet police lost track of the suspect at the nearby apartment complex a judge has had a bond at a million dollars for an owl's Lee County woman who's accused of killing her parents Lynette

26th the father of a Knox County murder victim says he talked to the suspect the day before the crime police say Shane Mills was shot and killed in his home last week police later arrested Richard Brown and charged him with murder they say Brown admitted to shooting Mills twice Mills his father says Brown was in his store last week he says brown asked questions about the store even asking when it would close I wanted him to hang him if you can or give him nature chair because he killed my son cold-blooded murder he had no gun he had no shot he was most likely asleep Mills also says when his wife called her son after hearing gunshots Brown answered the phone and lied about being there to fix a sink investigators are trying to figure out how a man died in a Wayne County cave 57 year-old Anthony ehresmann was found dead sunday night about 200 feet into a cave off our haul road the coroner says eris men had experience exploring caves and he did not have any signs of trauma new this morning a group of hikers from Lexington was safely rescued from the Red River Gorge the Wolfe County search and rescue team says three college students got lost while climbing in an area called the zoo the search team was able to get the lost hikers on the phone before putting a new apt to use giving them a good idea of where to search a few showers out at about toward the eastern zones but all I still back toward the west now this is your line this is the first piece of energy the first wave has already moved on through the second wave actually comes with this one the third wave is the one we're going to be concerned about later on this evening so let's talk about this one it travels on through i would say gets off into our western zones right around nine to ten a.m. round here in Lexington roughly midday give or take an hour so and it looks to push on through the farther it gets away from its energy back toward the west less your likelihood of it actually sticking together so don't expect it to be extremely strong as it rolls on through it's the one off toward the evening we're going to be watching very closely so on and off through the day you will get breaks it's not going to rain all day on you and then once we hit that 6 p.m. to about midnight timeframe that's when we expect those storms to become severe that's your severe timing ok damaging winds large hail and also the possibility of an isolated tornado or two will be with us today I do want to reiterate this this is not the outbreak type of situation that we just saw in Oklahoma it's the same system but it's not the same strength okay is it gets a little bit closer to us it loses a lot of that strength but nonetheless it's just enough through off some severe weather the slight risk across the region many uncertainties with this I'll go ahead and tell you that and be honest with you that the cloud cover the rain how that's going to affect the energy later on this afternoon is there going to be in a lot of energy when these storms roll on through that's something to really watch out for if you get a lot of sunshine today that's bad news if you don't that actually helps us out so the rain early on is actually helping us out 4pm to 7 p.m. is when we expect the severe timing not thunderstorm timing but severe timing 4pm to 7pm back toward the northwest is we look back toward the north and northeast down into the Bluegrass region and off toward the cumberland area that's 7pm to 10pm is when you can expect that to come on through that does include Lexington and then down toward the southeast 10 p.m. to 1am is when you expect these storms roll on through that's another uncertainty is the timing on this we'll have to watch this closely that's what I'm feeling right now just look these different models because a lot of these particular models aren't really matching up with each other and when that happens it drops your confidence as a forecaster on the timing on this we'll have to watch it as it gets a little bit closer but it's right now that's the best bet I have on the handle on this timing yeah it's tough when you have to hope against sunshine right right you always love sunshine these lads able to fire up those storms all right Micah thank you very much our time right now 609 and each morning we bring you weather and traffic together right here let's go to officer Don and check on what's happening on the roads good morning good morning well not a lot on the circle we just checked the inner and outer loops look okay even the exit ramps at Richmond Road alumni Tates Creek in great shape or the north side no trouble just yet let's get a look at overall traffic flow first this morning give you an idea what's happening is you plan to head out the door we're pretty good shape toward downtown no major issues there on our drive times it's a basically the ride we would expect coming in from Nicholasville now running at 12 to 14 minutes inbound from

showers over towards for Kentucky trying to move on out a big break over toward the western zones nothing really going on right now however look at this line of thunderstorms heading our direction this is not your severe weather concern your concern actually comes later on this evening but I do want to show you this okay so here's the second wave we already had our first wave it's moving on out this is our second wave a little stronger wave obviously but your actual system still is back to our Missouri okay so it's the farther that this gets away from that system away from that energy the energy is right here so the farther this gets away unless you're like a little bit actually staying together or it actually being as strong as what it is right now I don't expect it to be that strong as it rolls on through however you'll get a few rumbles of thunder and also some showers out of that but once we travel off into the evening hours that's when your severe chance comes into play okay so you can have some on and off showers and thunderstorms through the day but your severe chance later on this evening now through thursday i mean
