Ky. highway crews monitoring chance of wintry precipitation overnight

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Snow and Ice Team is monitoring weather developments across the region this evening.

While there is some chance of flurries and possible light snow accumulation, mainly along Ohio River border counties, ambient air temps are expected to remain mostly above freezing. Additionally, roadway surface temperatures should be sufficient to melt the snow as it falls.

As a precaution, District 2 has treated some bridges in the northern portion of the district in areas most likely to get winter precipitation tonight.

Otherwise, management personnel will be monitoring road conditions and calling in crews, if required.

Motorists are advised to carefully monitor local road conditions and adjust driving speeds accordingly.
