Statement as of 4:15 AM EST on December 13, 2017

Expires 5:00 PM EST on December 13, 2017


... Gusty winds expected across eastern Kentucky this afternoon

and 35 mph can be expected at times. Wind gusts of these
magnitudes will be prone to blow around any lawn decorations or
garbage cans as well as make driving difficult for higher profile

strongest over western parts of the area with lesser gusts found
in the east - outside of the higher ridges near the Virginia
border where gusts to between 35 and 40 mph will be possible.
