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.
The windy weather is being blamed for blowing a semi off the road early Monday morning.
Emergency workers tell 27 NEWSFIRST the vehicle ran off Mt. Hebron Road in Garrard County.
The semi ran into an embankment and got stuck.
Fortunately, the driver wasn't injured and the semi stayed upright.
A crew is expected to return Monday to get the semi out of the ditch.
Mt. Hebron Road wasn't blocked.
