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.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A semi caught fire on I-75 near the northern split.
When firefighters first arrived, the semi was engulfed in flames.
They were able to quickly put out the fire.
Right now, only one southbound lane of the interstate is open.
We're told salt trucks are being called out to treat the roadways, because the water used to put out the fire could freeze.
