A mixture of sleet and freezing rain impacted the region during the late afternoon and evening on January 30th. The initial round moved out overnight, and then a secondary wave moved in during the afternoon and evening on January 31st. Temperatures were well below freezing so roads quickly became covered with sleet, which compacted down to an icy coating. Even in the days that followed, many secondary roads were ice-covered as temperatures remained below freezing through the morning of February 2nd. There were numerous slide-offs and some accidents. Schools were cancelled in most counties from January 30th through February 2nd. A multi-vehicle pileup on Interstate 24 over the Cumberland River closed the eastbound lanes in parts of Lyon and Livingston Counties on the morning of February 1.
