Two of the nation's most popular tourist spots are in danger at this writing as massive drought-fueled Smokey Mountain wildfires are forcing the evacuations of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge in Tennessee.
I have to give a major shout out to my friend Cathy Dukes, who gave me a heads up about this forecast. For years, Dick Frymire of Irvington, Kentucky used a Japanese elm tree and a formula built around it to predict winter weather for the coming year. Though Dick passed away in 2013, his family is carrying on his tradition and they have issued the 2016-2017 forecast. And here's a little hint. You'd better bundle up and get the shovel ready!
Remember when it was warm on Halloween? Well, I believe Fall is finally here, and a part of winter is about to arrive. The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a Freeze Warning in effect midnight tonight until 8:00 a.m. Sunday.
Don't let temperatures in the 80s in early November fool you. Winter IS coming. It says so on my calendar. So despite the amazing temperatures we've been experiencing, we just KNOW it's gonna feel a lot different in a couple of months, right?
Yes, we are already preparing for SNOW & ICE SEASON. A team of KYTC District 2 mechanics and safety personnel will be descending on our OHIO COUNTY Highway Maintenance Facility starting about 8:30 a.m., CDT, on Tuesday, October 25, 2016.
Now this is hilarious and, quite honestly, Shark Tank-worthy. I think we can all agree that this summer has been hot and humid and we've all been trying to come up with creative ways to stay cool. But this idea is absolute genius. One local driver installed a window unit in the family van.
It seems like we just can't get a break from rain. And that trend looks to continue this weekend. The National Weather Service has placed parts of the WBKR listening area under a Marginal Risk for severe weather Saturday. Yep. In addition to heavy rain, we could see damaging wings and lightning. Here's the forecast.
