A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
Police say the wet roads are responsible for a deadly crash in Madison County on Friday afternoon.
The crash happened on KY 52, west of Richmond.
State police say the driver of this car lost control on the slick roads, ran off the highway and hit a tree. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police have not released any information on the victim's identity.
