PADUCAH - Kentucky Transportation Cabinet crews in District 1 are gearing up for another round of winter precipitation overnight.

A winter weather advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service, which means it will be a dry snow. KYTC Spokesperson Keith Todd says that kind of snow is easy to plow from roadways.

Drivers are asked to use caution if they plan to travel overnight, as there may be some opportunity for snow to drift back over roadways after they are plowed.

Crews have spent the last two days restocking salt supplies, and trucks have hauled salt from central storage facilities to individual counties so it can be available for use as needed.
