February Summary

February 2013 started off snowy and cold across the Ohio Valley, as a cold front pushed through as the month was beginning and was followed by upper level disturbances over the next couple of days.  Through the first three days of the month, most locations received 1 to 3 inches of snow.  The cold air mass that brought us the snow also provided cold temperatures, with single digits being recorded in southern Indiana and northern Kentucky on the morning of the 1st.

The rest of the month was fairly quiet.  The only other really significant system to push through arrived on the night of the 21st-22nd.  While light rain fell on southern Kentucky, northern Kentucky and southern Indiana had to deal with light sleet and freezing rain.  Fortunately surface temperatures were warm enough that most roads stayed wet, with just some scattered slick spots.
