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.
Firefighters in Winchester had to battle the weather and a large fire Monday night.
The fire broke out at a 100-year-old home on Cook Avenue.
The owner is Pastor Wayne Hall of Calvary Baptist Church, in Winchester.
He and his wife were able to escape, but he says they lost nearly everything.
The homeowner says squirrels get into his roof, and he thinks one may have chewed into some wiring, which may have sparked the fire.
