Less than 48 hours after Christian County was impacted by tornadoes and damaging winds, snow was the story last night.
A Winter Weather Advisory was issued late in the afternoon and snow arrived right on schedule between 7 and 8 o’clock across the southern Pennyrile.
Some areas received about an inch of snow, while others recorded just a dusting at most.
Even with little advanced warning, the highway departments in Kentucky and Tennessee spent the afternoon pre-treating roads, though motorists are urged to keep it slow this morning and to allow extra time. A dispatcher at the ECC described the roads as “slick in spots” and said there were a few accidents reported at the onset of the snow, but none overnight. She says motorists should use caution and slow it down on their morning commute.
The snow was associated with a cold front that swept in from the northwest and caused the temperature to plummet by about 10 to 15 degrees in less than an hour.
