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.
During Monday night's state of the merged government address, Lexington Mayor Jim Newberry said the city must plan on growth and the future.
Mayor Newberry said the state of the merged government is more promising now than one year ago-- but good is not good enough.
He also says Lexington cannot put a limit on the people that come here.
Mayor Newberry also said he will focus on education. He plans to ask the city council to fund scholarships for Lexington high school graduates who wish to major in math and science.
