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 to 4 inches of snow fell countywide.
