Update 2:15 pm: At the request of the McCracken County Sheriff, KYTC has closed the US 45 Ohio River "Brookport" Bridge in Paducah until further notice due to icing on the deck.
The National Weather Service’s Winter Storm Warning remains in effect through 6 a.m. Thursday morning as heavy rain creates flooding problems across our listening area.
As temperatures drop below freezing this afternoon, rain will change to sleet and eventually snow through tonight before tapering off tomorrow morning.
NWS has called for 6-8 inches of snow accumulation in the Jackson Purchase area and even higher amounts to the northeast. About an inch of ice and sleet will precede the snow.
