Freezing rain started late Thursday night (January 21) and transitioned over to snow in the early morning hours on January 22nd. Locations across our area received anywhere from a trace to 10+ inches of snow. Heaviest amounts were seen in western Kentucky, where 6 to 9 inches was common, but isolated even higher amounts were possible.
