The rain will transition over to snow as we head into mid to late morning across the area. We will see the chances for light accumulation in the valley areas with 1-3" possible on the ridge tops above 2000 feet. Slick spots are possible on untreated roads. While significant snow is not expected, we have issued a Severe Weather Alert Day to keep you informed on possible negative impacts to travel through Tuesday afternoon.
Knott county is making the final layoffs to completely shut the county down.
At a special called fiscal court meeting Thursday, the county treasurer explained that there is no money to pay the county employees.
A resolution was passed to finish laying off all people in the county that do not hold positions mandated by the state.
"As it stands right now, our last two departments are the senior citizens and road department," said Knott County Judge Executive Randy Thompson.
"And then we are back down to the state mandated jobs?" asked Knott County Magistrate Calvin Waddles.
"For the most part. It will vary just a little bit from that if we try to do the best that we can to get by," replied Thompson.
There was also a first reading of the occupational tax that Thompson says could help the county's financial situation.
He says a vote will be held at the next regularly scheduled meeting.
