Episode Narrative A large and intense area of low pressure moved across the Tennessee valley and eventually up the east coast on December 18th and 19th. The initial precipitation began as a heavy wet snow on Friday afternoon December 18th. Accumulations around eastern Kentucky ranged between 1 and 4 inches. Ridgetop locations along the Virginia and west Virginia borders saw as much as 6 inches, with 13 inches reported on Flatwood Mountain in Pike County. This initial round of snow fell generally between 2 and 6 pm on the 18th.
After several hours of nothing but rain, another round of widespread and intense snowfall began at around 10 pm. The Jackson weather office picked up 2.6 inches of snow between 10 pm and midnight on the 18th and there were 11 inches on the ground by early Saturday morning. By 7 am on Saturday December 19th 5 to 7 inches of snow blanketed the ground across much of southeast Kentucky. The highest snowfall totals for this event were 16 inches on Black Mountain, 13 inches on Flatwood Mountain in Pike County, and 11 inches at the Jackson weather office. Numerous trees and power lines were downed by the heavy wet snow with widespread and long lasting power outages reported across the area.
