An Arctic cold front moved rapidly southeast across the lower Ohio Valley on the evening of the 11th. Rain changed to a brief period of freezing rain, then to sleet during the overnight hours. The sleet changed to snow on the 12th as the Arctic air flooded in. A vigorous disturbance in the upper levels of the atmosphere prolonged the snow through much of the day on the 12th. Snow amounts were greatest over western Kentucky, with amounts of 3 to 5 inches common. A few areas observed as much as 7 inches of combined snow and sleet accumulations.
