Crews preparing for bad weather
State snow-clearing crews in northeast Kentucky are monitoring the potential for ice and snow late this weekend, and are prepared to respond when the wintry blast hits the region.
Most of Kentucky is under a winter storm watch, as National Weather Service forecasters say rain Sunday will likely change to freezing rain and sleet then snow in the afternoon and overnight hours, with the greatest risk along and north of the Mountain Parkway.
Kentucky Department of Highways District 9 crews have been pre-treating roads with brine in some areas today, as well as readying plows and salt trucks, chainsaws and other storm response equipment. District management will closely watch weather forecasts this weekend, and will call in state and contract crews if needed ahead of the storm so roads can be treated as quickly as possible.
