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.
Investigators have confirmed a Lexington man who died while painting his house was electrocuted.
Jacob Lathery's wife found him unconscious in his backyard on Mulberry Drive yesterday afternoon.
He was taken to the hospital to be treated for a fall off a ladder, but an autopsy today showed he died of electrocution.
Investigators believe he came into contact with exposed electrical wires before he fell.
