Warm Up Giving Help To Storm Relief Efforts

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Residents, utility crews and members of the National Guard across Kentucky are getting a little help from Mother Nature while trying to dig out of last week's massive winter storm.

The National Weather Service says temperatures are in the upper-40s and lower-50s for most of the state, though forecasters doesn't expect the warm up to melt off all the remaining snow and ice.

Meteorologist Joe Ammerman says it could get up to 54 degrees in places like Bowling Green, while temperatures in far southern and western Kentucky could top out near 60.

Ammerman said there were reports of minor flooding along the Green River in central Kentucky and some creeks could face rising waters as the ice and snow continue to melt.
