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.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The dean of Kentucky's congressional delegation, U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers, has begun his 33rd year representing the 5th District.
Rogers, chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, was sworn in Thursday for his 17th term.
In a written statement, Rogers said he will press Washington to operate within its means, promote small business growth, enact meaningful entitlement and tax reform and support the nation's military personnel and veterans.
Rogers boasted that the mountainous region he represents has steadily improved its infrastructure, environment and economy over the years. He thanked constituents for "standing shoulder to shoulder with me."
