Summary of March 16-17 Snow & Ice Event

More snow and ice plagued parts of east Kentucky on March 16th and 17th.  Rain overspread the area on Sunday morning March 16th, but then transitioned to sleet and snow during the afternoon and early evening from north to south as low pressure tracking to our south pulled down colder air into the region.  There were even a few periods of freezing rain as well.  By the time the precipitation ended Monday morning, snow and sleet accumulations were mainly confined to locations north of the Hal Rogers Parkway, with the heaviest accumulations occurring over northeast Kentucky. 

BELOW IS A SUMMARY OF SNOW AND SLEET REPORTS RECEIVED BY NWS
JACKSON KY THROUGH 1130 AM MONDAY MORNING. THE TOTALS ARE
