Episode Narrative On Monday, December 15th, a shallow arctic boundary moved into the Tennessee Valley. By late Monday, moist air moved north, overrunning this boundary. A mix of sleet and freezing rain developed along the Ohio River late Monday. A light coating of ice and sleet covered roads and led to hazardous driving. Early Tuesday, a narrow band of heavy snow formed over central Kentucky. The axis of greatest snow stretched from Ohio County, through Nelson County, and into the northern Bluegrass Region. Two to 5 inches of snow fell overnight and into the early morning hours of Tuesday, Dec 16th. This strip of snow was quite thin, with accumulating snow falling only along a 30 to 40 mile wide swath. Just south of this snow, a mix of freezing rain and sleet brought icy accumulations up to one quarter of an inch.
Event Narrative Two and one half inches of snow countywide as estimated by Emergency managers.
