Home improvement projects are on the rise with the arrival of spring.

But this also means you need to be on high alert for contractor scams in the Tri-State.

Just recently Kentucky counties faced the aftermath of heavy rain just a few weeks ago, with Governor Beshear issuing a Disaster Declaration for Flood Damage in dozens of counties in the Commonwealth.

We asked Onna Schneider with the Tri-State Better Business Bureau to joined 44News This Morning to discuss what homeowners need to be on the lookout for when searching for reputable businesses.

It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon throughout the Tri-State, but despite our seemingly endless supply of sunshine today, temperatures remained more than 10° cooler than the norm for this time of the year. Fortunately, today's peak temperature of 65° represents our coolest anticipated afternoon high temperature through the remainder of our extended forecast. While it is indeed encouraging that temperatures will gradually rise through the rest of the work week into the weekend ahead, we'll still have to deal with temperatures back down into the upper 30s and low 40s early Thursday morning.
