(KFVS) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says some highway crews are planning to pre-treat roads in anticipation of winter precipitation Tuesday afternoon and night.
The National Weather Service has placed portions of Western Kentucky under a Winter Weather Advisory until 2 a.m. on Wednesday. An area of wintry mix that is expected to hit northwest Tennessee could move northward to impact a number of Kentucky counties. The forecast includes a chance of sleet, freezing rain, and/or snow south of a line from about Mayfield to near Owensboro.
Temperatures have risen to near 30 degrees allowing the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Christian County Highway Crew to pre-treat highways in the southern half of the county.
According to KYTC, Lyon County and Trigg County are primarily focusing their pre-treating efforts primarily on bridges and overpasses. Other counties will be considering pre-treating if temperatures and other weather conditions allow.
