Snow Advisory Cancelled for Lexington

Much of the state was under a snow advisory for today, but the snow has missed the Lexington area and headed south.

Parts of southern and eastern Kentucky could receive snow. It is expected to start falling by morning and continue throughout the afternoon.

In Lexington, road crews pre-treated some highways. The streets and road department is standing by, ready to hit the streets, but it looks like they won't need it today. They have new equipment and a pile of salt that has hardly been used this winter.

The mild weather has saved the department money. So far this winter we’ve only received about an inch of snow in the Lexington area. The Fayette County Streets and Roads department has only spent $700 on snow removal. Last winter the Lexington area received about 16 inches of snow. Streets and Roads spent $67,000 for snow removal last year.

The city says the savings could still be spent if more wintry weather moves into the state the rest of winter. The snow expected today is expected to melt by Wednesday with temperatures back in the forties.
