Thursday morning rain soaked the Commonwealth, and the worst is yet to come. 

Inside the state's Emergency Operations Center, staff huddled watching the latest models.

They planned four conference calls with the National Weather Service.  We listened in on the first one.

"The precipitation's right on schedule.  The freezing line's a little ahead of schedule," said a meteorologist with the NWS.

The Emergency Operations Center went up to a heightened level one, which means the Director brought in extra staff to watch and plan for the storm.

"This is going to be a significant storm for the Commonwealth.  When you're in Paducah, or Pikeville this storm's going to affect you," said Charles O'Neal the Kentucky's Emergency Operations Assistant Director.

O'Neal asks people to use common sense, and only go out if they need to.

In Lexington, Streets and Roads are bringing in crews at 4 AM, and plan to work around the clock.

"Just to make sure, make sure our bases are covered, and as I said we're hoping it stays a rain event only," said Rob Allen LFUCG's Streets And Roads Manager.

They're hoping for the best, but planning for the worst.
