The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Watch, from Thursday evening through Friday afternoon. Forecasters say Thursday's rain and falling temperatures will lead us into Friday, when sleet and freezing rain could change to snow around the lunch hour. For now, the NWS forecast map for Friday noon shows the dividing line for snow and freezing rain passing through Evansville.
Western Kentucky highway crews are already preparing for a mix of precipitation late this week. They've stocked up on brine to pre-treat roadways.
