Sky Alert Weather Forecast

A WYMT Severe Weather Alert Day continues until Friday morning due to Flooding and Winter Weather.

The good news is that the snow will wrap up in a few hours here in Eastern Kentucky as snow showers will taper off in the evening. However we will continue to deal with slick roads through Friday morning as temperatures drop into the single digits.

Flooding remains a major problem area wide. Most local rivers have hit their crest in the mountains, but in the lower elevations the rivers have yet to crest. Water levels will recede in the higher elevations but could continue to rise once you get outside the mountains for the next day or so.

The forecast is thankfully looking dry the next seven days though. We need a break and we are finally going to get one. Highs in the 40s this weekend, 50s early next week, and 60s by late week.
