The Dividing Line of Snow

Feb 20, 2012

Although much of central Kentucky was spared this past weekend, that certainly wasn’t the case in eastern Kentucky where snowfall was moderate to heavy.  David Shellenberger is with the national weather service in Jackson.  “Looking at our snow totals..the highest total we’ve gotten so far is at Shelby Gap and that’s in Pike County,” said Schellenberger.

Schellenbergers says some power outages have been reported in southern Breathitt county.  He says the storm tracked a little south of much of Kentucky.

“The gradient between the air coming in from the north and drying out some of our precip from the north, we knew there was going to be a very fine line..between accumulating snow and areas that didn’t get anything,” added Schellenberger.

Schellenberger says the long range forecast calls for a chance of snow by the end of the week, but right now, accumulation is expected to be minimal.
