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.
Protesters were demonstrating outside
Kentucky's Republican Party headquarters while GOP leaders met
inside to pledge their support for U.S. Senate nominee Rand Paul.
Paul ruffled feathers earlier this week when he expressed
misgivings about the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Fresh off a lopsided
victory in the Kentucky's primary election, Paul told MSNBC host
Rachel Maddow that he abhors racial discrimination, but suggested
the federal government shouldn't have the power to force
restaurants to admit minorities against their will.
The Bowling Green eye doctor and son of libertarian president
candidate Ron Paul didn't mention the civil rights flap in brief
remarks to supporters inside GOP headquarters. He refused to answer
questions when he left afterward.
