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.
Attorneys for death row inmate Ralph Baze say Governor Fletcher signed his death warrant too early.
Yesterday's warrant set Baze's execution for September 25.
But his attorneys say he still has an appeal before the U.S. Supreme Court that may not be decided until two weeks after that date.
They're now trying to stop the execution.
Baze was convicted for the 1992 murders of Powell County Sheriff Steve Bennett and Deputy Arthur Briscoe.
