BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WKYT) - The weather is putting a damper on the spirits of high school football fans.

Traveling to the state high school football championships could be a challenge for some with the weather that's expected over the next few days.

It has been a very wet, rainy and nasty day in southern Kentucky, but for the teams preparing for the trip to Bowling Green, for what may be a once in a lifetime opportunity, the change in this weather is a very legitimate concern.

"For the first time in 45 years, Wayne County is in the football finals. We're going to get there one way or another."

Shannon Hutchinson says not even a blizzard will keep die hard Wayne County Cardinal fans like him from traveling to Bowling Green Friday to see his team play for a championship.

"What a possibility. We could be in the state finals and the weather be as bad as it has ever been for state finals."

Wayne County Superintendent John Dalton says alternate plans are in place should the weather change and make travel difficult either going to or coming from the game.

"The folks at WKU have been very gracious. We have contingency plans with them should the weather turn worse while we are there."

We're told the Williamsburg team is leaving Thursday night. They hope to be back home before the worst of the weather hits.

Pulaski County plays on Saturday. No adjustments have been made as of yet.

We're also told the tourism commission is working with hotels to extend stays for those who want to ride the weather out.

The KHSAA says the Class A and AAA games for Friday will be played as scheduled, and any changed for the other games will be made after 10:00 Friday morning.
