Heavy rain will be the issue through the first half of the day. Significant snow & sleet will be the call during the afternoon through tomorrow. Look for almost impassable travel in some spots tomorrow.
Days before he's expected to plead guilty to government corruption charges, former agriculture commissioner Richie Farmer has asked permission to take a trip out of state.
According to court documents, Farmer says his father is in a Kentucky hospital, but could be transferred to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville. If that happens, Farmer wants permission to take his mother to and from the hospital.
A judge will allow that, on a schedule pre-approved by the U.S. probation office.
He also has to make all court appearances, including a re-arraignment Friday, where he's expected to plead guilty.
