After midnight Saturday, the chance for freezing rain and sleet return and become mostly freezing rain after noon on Sunday. There is a 60 percent chance of precipitation.

Monday and Tuesday should be partly sunny with no precipitation. Highs will be around 30 with lows around 14.

Road crews were out throughout the Kentucky Department of Transportation District 2, ploughing and treating roads.

According to Keith Todd with KYDOT, a truck jack-knifed just north of the Hartford Exit around 2 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6 on the Natcher Parkway. The Ohio County Sheriff's Office and Hartford Police helped facilitate the clearing the scene within an hour.
