The National Weather Service in Louisville, KY, has issued a Special Weather Statement for our South Central Kentucky area, which warns of slick road conditions, bitterly cold temperatures and areas of dense freezing fog.

The Special Weather Statement, issued at 4:16amET/3:16amCT, Thursday, February 10, 2011, says that "The combination of clear skies and light winds combined with the recent snowfall has allowed temperatures to drop into the single digits this morning.

"Along with the cold temperatures, hazardous road conditions are still common across Southern Kentucky. While the main roads have been treated, many secondary and untreated back roads remain snow covered., slick and hazardous. These hazardous road conditions will continue into the mid-morning hours. In addition, areas of freezing fog have formed across the area. This fog has been reported to be quite dense in some locations restricting visibility to less than one mile in some spots."

Drivers are urged to use caution when traveling today and to allow plenty of time to reach destinations.
