A little snow accumulation is expected Monday evening as a low pressure system moves through the Ohio Valley. The snow is expected to taper off during the evening with accumulations of less than one inch, according to the National Weather Service. Rain is expected to mix with the snow at times but there will be periods of just snow in heavier precipitation.
Visibility will drop rapidly during the snow showers which may cause slick spots on the roadways. Drivers are urged to use caution, to slow down, and to allow extra distance between cars
According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 6, road crews will be on standby Monday afternoon and ready to treat roadways as needed during rush hour or until this winter event is over.
District 6 would like to remind motorists, if you are out on the roads during a snow storm and you see the flashing yellow lights of our salt trucks please get out of their way so they can get the roads open for you. Salt trucks are considered emergency equipment and they deserve cooperation from motorists. Give them room on roadways and shoulders.
