February 21-22 Sleet/Ice Accumulations and Rainfall

 Widespread precipitation moved through the Ohio Valley Thursday evening into early Friday morning. The majority of the precipitation fell as sleet and freezing rain across southern Indiana, resulting in light accumulations of ice, especially on elevated surfaces. Further south across north central Kentucky, rain mixed with sleet and some freezing rain to produce a trace to light accumulations mainly on elevated surfaces. Overall, a general .25" to 1" of liquid equivalent precipitation fell across the southern Indiana and central Kentucky, with extreme western Kentucky seeing amounts over an inch. This area also saw more significant icing. The regional and statewide precipitation maps can be found below.

Sleet/ice accumulations were gathered using media, social media, and local county official reports.
