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.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A new contest aims to get creative and innovative Louisville residents working on technical solutions to make the city better.
The Hack-a-thon offers awards of $5,000, $3,000 and $2,000 to the teams with the top concepts.
Louisville resident Aaron Drake was one of the participants in Saturday's contest. He told The Courier-Journal he likes to ride the bus but gets frustrated when it is delayed. The 29-year-old software developer is proposing an app that would track the buses' whereabouts.
The event was organized by Metro government and the San Francisco-based nonprofit Code for America.
The top three concepts will be chosen by a panel of volunteers. If the winners accept the prize money, they must agree to share the rights to their work with the Metro government.
