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.
Rebuilt and restored, a grocery store will hold a special ceremony tomorrow after a devastating fire.
Jack's IGA in Beattyville was one of several businesses wiped-out in a fire last year. The community depended on the store for its groceries and now, many folks in Beattyville say they're thankful to have it back. The store re-opened last month after 9 months of rebuilding. The ribbon cutting and official re-opening ceremony will be tomorrow at 9 am.
