Episode Narrative The first winter storm of the season brought widespread sleet and freezing rain. Up to one quarter inch of ice coated roadways during the evening commute. Numerous accidents and slide-offs occurred. An accident on Highway 307 north of Fulton injured a couple of people. Locally higher accumulations of sleet and snow were observed in a small band from Central City westward along the Western Kentucky Parkway. A total of 3.4 inches of sleet and snow fell at Central City. Four inches was reported at Mortons Gap in Hopkins County. A strong cold front ushered much colder air into the region. A weak low pressure system then moved northeast along the front, causing the widespread sleet and freezing rain.
