Eastern Kentucky Weather

UPDATE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!

These roads are a slushy mess and I am convinced that nearly every school is closed in eastern Kentucky!

We kept having power glitches at the station so I am now home and ready to change my overall blog forecast. I actually changed it for the 11pm news and got tied up with other things... long story short here is my update.

I had generally mentioned 1"-4" and that's pretty much a common total, but there are some locations that will see even more than the 4" so I have increased my projection for some counties to possibily hit 6"

Anthony Morrow sent this to us from McCreary County. This is one of my favorite measuring techniques... and these always find a way on my blog or broadcast! lol Thanks Anthony for your picture!

Jaden Pennington is standing here with a snowman that would make Frosty jealous. This one comes from Laurel County. The email said that Jaden built this with his dad... looks good... the only thing it needs is a pair of glasses and a bald head like me!!!!!
