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) - Lexington Police are investigating a copper theft at a middle school.
The copper was taken from a construction site at Jesse Clark Middle School on Clays Mill Road.
The thieves cut the lock off of a gate and removed a Bobcat from in front of the trailer, where the copper was stored. The construction site foreman says that they cleared a whole rack of copper and another pile of scrap, worth thousands of dollars.
The criminals also broke into another trailer, but didn't get anything out of it.
