The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is reminding everyone to use caution due to high winds in the forecast for today and tonight.  The National Weather Service has issued a WIND ADVISORY, indicating the region can expect sustained winds above 20 miles per hour with gusts as high as 50 miles per hour at times through tonight.

 

This will create hazardous driving conditions until at least midnight and possibly into Friday morning.

 

Motorists should slow down and use appropriate caution.  High-profile vehicles such as commercial trucks, RV’s, vans and large SUV’s are particularly susceptible to high winds.
