Episode Narrative A weak low pressure system moved eastward across the Lower Mississippi Valley on Christmas Eve, reaching the Southeast states during the overnight hours. At the same time, a rather strong upper level disturbance moved southeast across the central Plains. This combination of systems resulted in widespread snowfall across western Kentucky. Average snowfall amounts were two to three inches. There was a swath of 4 to 5 inches that extended from west to east across the Kentucky Lake and Pennyrile regions. The swath extended from eastern Carlisle County and northern Graves County, eastward across the Benton and Eddyville areas, to around Princeton and Greenville. Specific snowfall reports included 5 inches in Greenville, 4 inches at Dawson Springs and Calvert City, 3.5 inches at Hopkinsville and Paducah, and 3 inches at Morganfield. Much of the snow fell in a three-hour window, when visibility dropped to one-half mile and accumulations neared an inch per hour. Roads became slick and hazardous, causing vehicles to run off the road. Numerous accidents were reported. Accidents with injuries occurred in Henderson County, including one on the Audubon Parkway. In Christian County, one person was injured in an accident. Several vehicles became stuck on hills in Muhlenberg County.
