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.
The search continues for an inmate who walked away from the Bell County Forestry Camp.
Joe Michael Spoonamore escaped Thursday afternoon.
Spoonamore, who is from Rockcastle County, was serving a 12-year sentence for possession of a handgun by a convicted felon and drug charges.
He is 36-years-old, around 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing one hundred 75-pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
Spoonamore was eligible for parole in June 2013.
Officials say he may be in Rockcastle County.
