Wintry Mix Of Rain, Snow Moves Into Kentucky

A wintry mix of rain and snow moved into Kentucky, causing slushy, slippery road conditions in much of the state.

Western Kentucky and south central Kentucky were under a flood watch Saturday due to warmer temperature and rains in those areas.

The National Weather Service says areas north of Interstate 64 will get a rain and snow mix, while areas south of I-64 could get up to an inch of rain. Areas south of Elizabethtown in central Kentucky are under a flood watch that expires at midnight.

Northbound traffic on Interstate 65 was backed up for miles Saturday afternoon at exit 86 near Elizabethtown due to a tractor-trailer crash. The Kentucky Department of Transportation is warning motorists to slow down well in advance of slow or stopped traffic.
