Kentuckians are being dealt a wintery forecast today (01/05/14) and through Wednesday. KSP is asking motorists to be aware that weather conditions may change rapidly over the next 24 hours.
“Winter weather provides new challenges and responsibilities to the public and the Kentucky State Police,” says KSP spokesman Sgt. Michael Webb.
