Snowfall Variations on March 25th

A strong March low pressure system brought convective snow showers to the Ohio Valley on Monday. The result is that some places picked up an inch or two of snowfall very quickly, while others just a short distance away had only flurries. In this way, these snow showers resembled summertime thunderstorms, only on a much colder scale! 

To illustrate this, we'll use webcams to take a virtual drive down I-65, with a couple small detours.  Here in Louisville, we didn't get much snow at all, and even as we get down into Bullitt County, we can see there's still not much. 

Just down the road near Elizabethtown, this webcam along the Bluegrass Parkway tells a different story. We had some reports of up to 2 inches in this area.

Another 10 miles south of Elizabethtown, and it's back to (mostly) green grass. 

That's just one quick set of examples.  There were reports of up to 2 inches of snow in Taylorsville, but no sign of snowfall in Bardstown. Truly a hit-and-miss event.
