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

... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect from 10 PM this evening
to 1 PM EST Thursday...

* colder air will move in from northwest to southeast this evening
and tonight... changing precipitation from rain... to a mixture
of freezing rain... sleet... and then to all snow. Freezing rain
and accumulating sleet will likely begin just after midnight
early Thursday morning... before transitioning to accumulating
snow by dawn Thursday. Snow will lighten and taper off by
Thursday evening.

* Snow and sleet accumulations of 2 to 5 inches... with ice
accumulations generally a tenth of an inch or less are
possible.

* Roads will develop slick spots as rain changes over to freezing
rain. In addition... heavy wet snow falling on top of these slick
roadways will make travel difficult and hazardous. Please take
extreme caution and avoid unnecessary travel if possible. Heavy
wet snow could also lead to downed power lines and trees and
since the ground is saturated... isolated power outages would be
possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Warning for snow... sleet... and ice are expected.
Significant amounts of snow and ice 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 3:58 PM EST on March 04, 2015

... A Flood Warning for snowmelt remains in effect until 645 PM EST
Wednesday for Harlan and Bell counties...

At 356 PM EST... Doppler radar indicated light to moderate rainfall
continuing across the area. Up to an additional third of an inch of
rainfall is expected between 4:00 and 6:30 PM. Flooding will
continue to be seen along creeks and streams through this
evening... especially in low lying areas.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Harlan... Pineville... Middlesboro... Cumberland... Loyall... Evarts...
Lynch... Benham... Wallins Creek... Creech... sunshine... Smith...
Calvin... South Wallins... Stony Fork Junction... Ponza... Tway...
shields... Grays Knob and hutch.

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.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause ponding of water in
urban areas... highways... streets and underpasses as well as other
poor drainage areas and low lying spots. Do not attempt to travel
across flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few
inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.
