Special Statement:

Issued at: 8:55 PM EDT on April 23, 2014, expires at: 9:00 AM EDT on April 24, 2014
  • Patchy frost is expected late tonight into Thursday morning. It will be most prevalent in valleys. It would be a good idea to protect sensitive plants in the normally colder locations. The combination of dry air and winds of 5 to 10 mph will result in an enhanced wildfire danger during the afternoon and early evening on Thursday. Any open burning will be potentially dangerous and is discouraged. In addition...Kentucky state law prohibits burning within 150 feet of Woodland or brush land between the hours of 6 am and 6 PM during this time of year. Due to the very dry conditions...be careful not to discard cigarettes in areas where they could start a fire.
