Statement as of 4:45 AM EST on March 05, 2015

... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 1 PM EST this
afternoon...

* colder air will continue to move in from northwest through this
morning changing a wintry mix of sleet and snow to all snow.
The snow may fall heavy at times this morning... before
lightening and tapering off by afternoon.

* 2 to 5 inches of additional snow should fall through early
afternoon. This will bring storm total snow and sleet
accumulations to the 3 to 7 inch range. The higher snow and
sleet accumulations should generally be north of the Cumberland
Parkway... to hal Rogers Parkway... to KY Highway 80 corridor.

* 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

At 423 am EST... a mixture of sleet and snow was ongoing... and
expected to change over to all snow this morning... before tapering
off by late this afternoon. However... runoff from heavy rainfall and

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.

expected to change over to all snow this morning... before tapering
off by late this afternoon. However... runoff from heavy rainfall and
snow melt that occurred Tuesday night and Wednesday has resulted in
flooding of some area creeks and streams within the warning. Expect

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.
