The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is warning residents of a text message scam.

Officials say a text phishing attempt was reported impersonating a state agency.

The text message includes a link and the sender is listed as "KYDOT."

KYTC says the text message is not from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, and recipients are warned not to click the link that asks for personal information.

The Cabinet does not send text messages that solicit personal information.

Victims who have submitted any personal information are advised to visit the Kentucky Office of the Attorney General website to follow their guidance concerning potential identity theft.

Just another day in paradise. Temperatures surged back into the low 70's for the first time in a week and a half and with southerly winds finally returning to the region, more warmth is on the way for the Tri-State. In fact, this evening looks nothing short of absolutely gorgeous across the area - by dinnertime we'll have fallen back down to 71°, but only as low as 58° by 10PM. So, if you have plans out and about this evening, all you may need will be a sweatshirt. We'll also remain relatively mild early Saturday morning, especially when you compare Saturday morning's anticipated low of 48° to previous mornings earlier in the week. Brrr.
