UNDER MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES...CONDITIONS ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY

NUMEROUS LOCATIONS YESTERDAY. NORMAL LOWS FOR THE END OF FEBRUARY
ARE AROUND THE FREEZING MARK. PARTLY SUNNY SKIES WERE PRESENT FOR
THE REST OF THE MORNING HOURS AS TEMPERATURES EASED INTO THE LOWER

LOOK FOR A STORM SYSTEM TO DEVELOP ALONG THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI
RIVER VALLEY AND MOVE NORTHEAST INTO THE CENTRAL APPALACHIANS THIS
EVENING. SNOW WILL DEVELOP AND OVERSPREAD EASTERN KENTUCKY THIS
EVENING AND TONIGHT WITH SOUTHERN AND SOUTHEASTERN KENTUCKY BEING

ONE AND THREE INCHES WITH THE HIGHER SNOWFALL TOTALS CONCENTRATED
AT HIGHER ELEVATIONS. SNOW CHANCES DIMINISH ON THURSDAY...BUT

ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...IN 1972...BALL LIGHTNING DAMAGED A
CABLE TELEVISION TOWER AND UTILITY LINES IN THE LONDON AREA. THE
AREA WAS ALSO IN THE MIDST OF WIDESPREAD FLOODING AND HIGH WATER
WHICH AFFECTED MUCH OF EASTERN KENTUCKY FROM 4 DAYS OF HEAVY RAIN.
