Rounds of heavy rain will begin to move into the area later tonight, leading to the increased potential for flooding. A Flood Watch is in effect for the entire area from now through Thursday and a Winter Storm Warning goes into effect tomorrow. As we head into Wednesday, temperatures will drop and transition our rain to sleet and eventually to snow. Most of the area could see several inches of snow and sleet before it's all said and done. Keep it locked right here for updates.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Geological Survey at the University of Kentucky has unveiled its latest project - the completion of one phase of geologic mapping of Kentucky.
The new phase has made Kentucky's geological maps all digital. They're expected to be useful in education as well as industry, including oil, gas and development.
State Geologist Jim Cobb says the maps provide information that helps produce resources, protect groundwater and the environment, stabilize foundations and infrastructure and avoid hazards.
The maps are available on the Web at no cost or hard copies can be ordered. Officials also announced a mapping application available to smartphone and tablet users at http://kgs.uky.edu/kgsmap/mobile/kgsgeoserver .
