Lexington will see wind gusts, 'beneficial rain'

Ike probably will not cut a path through Kentucky.

Instead, the state will get only the fringes of the storm as it moves through Missouri, Illinois and Indiana, said Mike Crow, a meteorologist with The National Weather Service in Louisville.

Lexington will have a wind advisory Sunday as the air moves at about 15 to 25 miles an hour, possibly gusting up to 40 mph.

Lexington could get 1/2 to 1 inch of rain, Crow said.

"The biggest effect is that it will be giving us some beneficial rain," he said.
