On January 6, two separate systems (1) a northern stream shortwave digging southeast into the Ohio Valley (2) a southern wave of low pressure moving along an Arctic front draped across the Southeast phased over the region and resulted in impactful snowfall across much of Kentucky.

A snow band that set up along the Bluegrass Parkway resulted in reports of up to 10 inches in that area and a new daily snowfall record for January 6 was set at Lexington as well (9.9 inches).
