  • Melting:'Sno problem



    HARDIN COUNTY — Say bye-bye to Frosty.

    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.

    Hardin County received between 3-6 inches of snow from this weekend’s storm.

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