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

2-13-12

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.

“Every day, hundreds of tons of fish and seaweed are bought and sold at Tokyo’s seafood markets. The markets are still bustling, but prices have fallen sharply amid concerns that some products might be contaminated with radioactive material leaking from Japan’s troubled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant.”

Space shuttle Discovery has racked up an impressive list of firsts, including its last one — it will soon become the first in NASA’s fleet to be retired.

NPR reports Discovery is about to embark on its final mission, marking the beginning of the end of NASA’s 30-year-old space shuttle era.

Heavy rains throughout today with thunderstorms and severe weather likely to grace the area will make for hazardous driving conditions.

KENTUCKY~ A bill calling for testing carbon dioxide storage systems in the Commonwealth picks up steam in the General Assembly and so is another proposed law that would require scrappers to prove the metal is theirs. House members want to stop Beshear’s state worker furloughs. It sounds like the makings of a horror movie, but a group is digging up bodies under one of the state’s oldest psychiatric hospitals.

I took some pictures of Murray and the campus of Murray State University on my morning walk to work today.  Saw a runner, but he whisked away before I could get a picture. But talk about dedication! Brrrrr. . .
