Strong to severe thunderstorms possible in multiple waves late Wednesday and Thursday

HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - A Severe Weather Alert Day is in place as we are watching the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms moving through the mountains. We’re keeping close eye on a warm front advancing into the mountains from the south. This warm front is not only introducing warm and moist air back to the mountains, but it’s serving as a track for showers and thunderstorms to follow along as they move into the mountains. Some of these storms could be on the strong to severe side as we have plenty of unstable air around the mountains. The greatest threat for damaging winds and heavy rain will be during the afternoon and evening hours as highs climb into the lower to middle 80s. Most of the area remains under a Level 1 Marginal Risk for severe weather with a Level 2 Slight Risk sneaking into our western counties.

The 2021 FNU President’s Annual Report: Return to Campus Highlights a Busy Year at Frontier

After nearly two years of being shut down by the pandemic, Frontier Nursing University’s (FNU) new Versailles, Ky. campus welcomed its first students last fall. Other than Commencement, which is the signature event every year, the resumption of student activities on campus was the highlight of 2021. Fittingly, the return to campus is featured prominently in the 2021 President’s Annual Report, which once again reviews the past year at Frontier through the lens of the 2021 strategic plan objectives. The efforts to achieve those strategic objectives resulted in many successes and lessons learned for the members of the Frontier community.
