WHITLEY COUNTY — Snow. Cold. Snow. Cold. Snow. Rain. Thunderstorm — Snow. Cold.

After being in a vicious cycle of snow and frigid temperatures, forecasters predicted warmer temperatures Thursday, bringing some hope for the beginning of the end of winter.

But the “warm” weather Thursday wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.

“It is so damp outside, it doesn’t feel any warmer,” said Whitley County Emergency Director Cathy Broxon-Ball.
