Tri-State road crews bracing for more cold weather

Posted: Updated:

Cold weather is back in the Tri-State and many Tri-State road crews are ready to treat roads as the winter weather moves in.

Temperatures continue to fall through the day Sunday and into the night, bottoming out in the low 20's Monday morning.

The rain snow and sleet will come to an end Sunday tonight. Winds will continue to be breezy and out of the north and will cause wind chills to be in the teens.

With the roads being wet and temps falling below freezing some black ice will be possible overnight. Accumulations up to 1" are possible.

Some Kentucky Transportation crews are planning to bring in a shift at 6 p.m. Sunday to be on alert across portions of Union, Henderson, Webster, McLean, Daviess, Hancock, and Ohio Counties.

Crews will focus on treating and clearing highways before temperatures drop significantly.

Motorists should carefully monitor the weather forecast and be alert for changing local driving conditions as this system moves through.

The sunshine will return Monday and temps will warm back up into the upper 40's for the highs. The warm up will continue with temps back near 60 for the middle of the week.
