    Mike Callahan, a National Weather Service hydrologist, said he expected the area would lose a large portion of its snow cover on Monday — and almost all of it by Thursday. Some patches in shady areas may linger.

    If it melts and then refreezes as nighttime lows drop into the 20s, ice could be a hazard on roadways, Callahan said.

    An ice storm canceled the kickoff in 2008. Another ice storm in 2009 created havoc for the entire state and forced organizers to change plans in Hodgenville. The unveiling of a new Lincoln penny was shifted from the Birthplace Park to the high school.
