24-Hour Precipiation Ending Saturday Morning

A rather dynamic clipper moved through the region on Friday afternoon/night, bringing rain and snow to southern Indiana and central Kentucky. Initially, as the precipitation moved into southern Indiana and central Kentucky, most received primarily rain. However, for locations along and north of the Ohio River, the rain quickly began mixing with snow by the late afternoon hours before changing over to snow entirely by evening. For much of Kentucky, accumulating snow was confined mostly to the northern half of the commonwealth although by early Saturday morning, most had seen at least a trace of snow falling from the sky. In places where the rain changed over to snow, the snow initially began as a heavy, wet snow before colder air moving into the region forced the flakes to become drier. Therefore, the wetter snow type significantly contributed to the melted precipitation totals, seen in the maps below.
