Snow and Weather Updates

UPDATE 3:00

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet crews are out pre-treating bridges and overpasses along Interstate 24.  This is being done in the chance that we get less rain that expected before winter precipitation hits later in the day.

Ballard County’s 21st Century Community Learning Center activities have been canceled today due to impending weather. Freshman and varsity boys’ basketball games with Lyon County are cancelled as well.

Tonight’s Graves County High School Frosh/Junior Varsity/Varsity Basketball games against Carlisle County have been cancelled, and they have been rescheduled for Tuesday night at the Eagles Nest beginning at 5 p.m.

Weather Update 1:04

National Weather Service forecasters say the predicted snow  for our region could begin around 3:00 p.m. in far western Kentucky moving east by 9:00 p.m. The best chance of ice, forecasters say, is after midnight. We could see up to one tenth of an inch of ice and possibly an inch of snow.

Highway Crews are not pre-treating roadways today because rain ahead of the snow would wash away the pre-treating chemicals. The road crews though will respond throughout the afternoon and evening as the rain changes to sleet and snow.

…and she has it all. Adele sweeps the Grammys, winning all six categories she was nominated for.

NPR reports the singer dominated the awards show, performing for the first time following throat surgery last year.

Kentucky~ Say good-bye to warm weather: winter storms are coming this way.  An Amish man’s heartfelt letters sway state lawmakers (when not busy challenging health reform). Managed care operators fumble early on after taking over Mediciad. The Murray State Racers bounce back. A series of pharmacy thefts worry business owners. The Delta-Mariner is due for repairs in Paducah.
