More Snow Falls across East Kentucky

Rain overspread east Kentucky Friday evening as a strengthening area of low pressure tracked across the state. The rain changed to snow from northwest to southeast during the night. The heaviest snowfall amounts fell north of I-64 with up to 4 inches of snow reported in Fleming County. Generally an inch or less of snow was reported south of I-64, but quickly falling temperatures freezing moisture on the roads resulted in slick and treacherous travel conditions even with the light snowfall amounts.

The snowfall totals below were received by NWS Jackson, KY through around 11 am February 15th, are separated by amount and are not necessarily the final amount for each location.
