The key to making it through the winter season is to be prepared before harsh conditions are upon you.
The current forecast calls for the first taste of winter precipitation over much of the Commonwealth by early next week. It's clear that winter has arrived early and that it is here to stay.
To help Kentuckians better prepare for the annual return of cold and snow, the National Weather Service (NWS) Offices that serve the state of Kentucky, in conjunction with Kentucky Emergency Management, have designated this week as Kentucky Winter Weather Awareness Week.
For the remainder of the week, Kentucky-serving NWS offices will have vital winter weather information posted in the "Top News" section of their websites and will be posting messages to social media. The web pages also serve as an excellent source for answers to your questions about what to do when the snow starts to fly and the mercury plummets.
