Snow and Wintry Precipitation Struck Eastern Kentucky on Tuesday 12/10/2013

Two systems, one tracking through the Ohio Valley and another moving across the southern Appalachians combined to bring snow and wintry precipitation to Eastern Kentucky from shortly after midnight on Tuesday through mid morning on Tuesday. Near the Tennessee and Virginia borders, sleet or even some rain mixed in and cut back on the snowfall. The heaviest totals received were from Pike and Letcher counties where as much as 3 to 4 inches was reported. An image below contains the estimated snowfall from this event through late morning on Tuesday 12/10/2013. Below the image is a table that contains several of the reports received from the event at NWS Jackson, KY through mid afternoon on Tuesday, 12/10/2013.
