Winter Storm Warning
Statement as of 1:02 PM EST on March 04, 2015

... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect from 7 PM this evening
to 1 PM EST Thursday...

* colder air will move in from northwest to southeast this through
tonight... changing precipitation from rain... to a mixture of
freezing rain... sleet... and then to snow. Freezing rain and
accumulating sleet will begin this evening... transitioning to
all snow from just after midnight on Thursday through the
overnight hours. Snow should lighten and taper off by Thursday
afternoon.

* Snow and sleet accumulations of 3 to 8 inches... the highest
snow and sleet accumulations generally north of the Cumberland
Parkway to hal Rogers Parkway to KY Highway 80 corridor.
Accumulations of ice from freezing rain of a tenth of an inch
or less are also expected.

* Snow of this magnitude will make travel difficult to
treacherous. In addition... the heavy wet nature of this snow
will cause stress on weak structures and could also lead to
downed power lines and trees with widespread power outages
possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow and sleet means severe
winter weather conditions are expected. Significant amounts of
snow are forecast that will make travel dangerous. Only travel in
an emergency. If you must travel... keep an extra flashlight...
food... and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.





Areal Flood Warning
Statement as of 6:38 PM EST on March 04, 2015

The National Weather Service in Jackson KY has issued a

* Flood Warning for...
Letcher County in southeastern Kentucky...
southeastern Knott County in southeastern Kentucky...
southwestern Pike County in southeastern Kentucky...

* until 630 am EST Thursday

* at 634 PM EST... Doppler radar and automated gages indicated that
between an inch and an inch and a half of rain had fallen across
the area since early Wednesday morning. Up to an additional inch
of rain may fall through the overnight hours. Excessive runoff
from the rain will cause flooding of creeks and streams...
particularly in low lying areas.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Whitesburg... Jenkins... Elkhorn City... Fleming-Neon... Blackey...
Partridge... Carbon Glow... Gander... Winters... Amelia... Fishpond
Lake... Ashcamp... Gilley... Whitaker... arminta... Tolliver
Town... Colly... Gaskill and Roxana.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding. If flooding is observed act quickly. Move up to
higher ground to escape flood waters. Do not stay in areas subject to
flooding when water begins rising.
