March Brings 1-4 Inches of Snow

A winter weather advisory remains in effect for Central Kentucky until 10 a.m. Monday. The region saw snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches overnight, with higher amounts in some areas. The snow and ice caused schools to be closed for the day in many communities. The heaviest snow accumulations were along and north of I-64.

The National Weather Service office in Jackson issued a winter weather advisory for much of Eastern Kentucky through 10 a.m. Monday. Snow will finally end before noon.

Total accumulations of 1 to 4 inches are expected with higher amounts along ridgetops and as well as along and north of the Mountain Parkway. The snow is heavy and wet and could cause tree damage and power outages in Eastern Kentucky, the national weather said.
