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. That would be enough to cause, at least, some local high water issues. 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 with a major impact to travel across the region. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in. We could flirt with record lows again by Friday morning with some areas near zero.
Governor Steve Beshear has launched a statewide outreach campaign to restock Kentucky Pantries.
Volunteers were on hand outside Rupp Arena to encourage people attending the basketball game, to bring food with them for people in need.
The governor says with the tough economic times the nation has been experiencing, coupled with the recent winter storm, Kentuckians are struggling each day to keep food on the table for their families.
Officials estimate that more than 6-thousand Kentuckians are currently displaced from their homes because of the winter storm.
