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.
State police are looking into the death of a Laurel County man, that police say is suspicious.
Police say the death of Harold Reams is being investigated as a homicide. We're told Reams was found shot to death at his home on Harold Reams Roads, early Saturday morning, by a family member.
Reams was pronounced dead at the scene and an autopsy was performed today. Police have not yet released the results of that autopsy, but say it will be available within the next few days.
Reams was a former County Road Foreman in Laurel County.
We'll bring you the latest in this investigation as it becomes available on 27 NEWSFIRST.
