Temps will continue to ascend into the lower to middle 30's this afternoon ending the cold snap.  A light wintry mix will move in late tonight and early Thursday morning. Temperatures climb into the mid 40's on Friday and close to 50-degrees over the weekend with rain likely on Friday evening through Saturday. Byron has the details.
Back to the books

Frozen pipes
The brutal cold is still taking its toll on pipes.  We'll update the latest situation as more cases pop up overnight.

Electricity rates may increase for some western Kentucky residents. Emily Busby will have details about a meeting today in Owensboro where you can find out more information.


We're also on the scene of a fire in Newburgh, which broke out a short time ago.
