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.
One of our own news crews was involved in a wreck Saturday.
WKYT reporter Denny Trease was hurt in a wreck along U.S. 27 in Garrard County, near the Jessamine County line Saturday afternoon.
Trease, along with photographer Brandon Whitworth, were rear-ended by a driver while stopped on the roadway. Their car then spun into oncoming traffic where it was hit again by another car.
Trease had to be transported to the hospital, but he is now at home recovering. Whitworth was not injured.
