Winter Storm Warning
Statement as of 9:15 PM EST on March 04, 2015

... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 1 PM EST
Thursday...

* colder air will continue to move in from northwest through the
night... changing precipitation from rain... to a mixture of
freezing rain... sleet... and then to snow. Then transitioning to
all snow through the overnight hours. Snow should lighten and
taper off by Thursday afternoon.

* Snow and sleet accumulations of 3 to 8 inches with higher
amounts possible... the highest snow and sleet accumulations
generally north of the Cumberland Parkway to hal Rogers Parkway
to KY Highway 80 corridor. Any ice accumulations will generally
be a tenth of an inch or less.

* 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 3:47 AM EST on March 05, 2015

... A Flood Warning remains in effect until 330 PM EST Thursday for
northern Knott... Floyd... east central Breathitt... Pike and
southeastern Magoffin counties...

At 347 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
snow melt that occurred Tuesday night and Wednesday has resulted in
flooding of some area creeks and streams within the warning. Expect
flooding to continue in these locations through at least this
afternoon.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Pikeville... Prestonsburg... Hindman... Estill... Coal Run Village...
Wheelwright... Martin... Pippa Passes... Forest Hills... Wayland...
Allen... Chloe... Gunlock... Evanston... Fishtrap Lake... East McDowell...
Alphoretta... Buckingham... Kite and Garden Village.

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.
