Episode Narrative A prolonged ice and snow storm began around just after midnight Tuesday January 27 and continued through 11 am Wednesday January 28. The mixed freezing rain and snow that fell over southern Indiana was just one aspect of a widespread overrunning event that brought destructive winter weather from Texas, through the Ohio Valley, into New England. Arctic air centered across the Upper Midwest supplied low level cold air. Several disturbances moved east across a nearly stationary front stalled across the Tennessee Valley. Snow, mixed with sleet along the Ohio River accumulated to around 3 to 5 inches by dawn on January 27th. During the afternoon and into the morning hours on the 28th, freezing rain developed and brought widespread ice accumulations averaging 1/2 inch. Icing lead to widespread tree damage and power outages during the overnight hours spanning the 27th and the 28th. Colder air arrived during the early morning hours on the 28th. Freezing rain changed back to snow with additional accumulations of 3 to 4 inches.
Event Narrative Three to 4 inches of snow accumulated by 8 am Tuesday, Jan 27th. Icing through the early morning hours of the 28th brought over one half inch of ice accumulation. Snow ending by noon on the 28th totaled around 3 inches.
