Crews from every county in the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 3 area stand ready to respond to a possible winter weather event that could create hazardous driving conditions tonight. Our snow & ice team has been monitoring forecast over the weekend and throughout the day today. A possible minor winter weather systesm could move through the area tonight.

Since the system is coming in as rain first, crews are not able to put down anti-icing material on the roadway prior to the weather system moving in. The warm weather Sunday and Monday will help reduce the possibility of hazardous road conditions, but temperatures are supposed to plummet overnight. If there is water on the roadway during this time it could freeze creating some icy conditions.

Motorists should keep this in mind for travel tonight and during their morning commute on Tuesday. Folks should give themselves some extra time to clear windshields and warm vehicles prior to departing.
