District 2 counties are reporting accumulations ranging from about 1/2 inch to a little over 1 inch.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokesman Keith Todd says crews have focused on “A” Snow Priority Routes overnight. Most are down to wet pavement with a few slushy spots. District 2 crews are ramping up at this hour to start working on “B” and “C” priority routes in an attempt to improve driving conditions for the morning commute.

While snow has trailed off to spotty in many of the District 2 counties, Todd says the radar indicates snow building back in across our District 1 counties at this hour with some strong bands that could create some hazardous driving.

Motorists are advised to use caution. Temperatures have remained in the 20’s, allowing salt to remain effective. Most of the snow is fairly wet which allows some traction. However, additional stopping distance is required due to the slippery conditions at some intersections.

Here are the districts specific reports:

Comments: Crittenden has 4 trucks out.
Treating: Crittenden
District 2 Madisonville
Time: 4:44 AM CST
Weather: Light snow

Comments: Snowfall has slumped off with only flurries to light snow being reported across the district. Temperatures in the 20’s are allowing salting efforts to continue to be effective. Most counties reporting A routes in good condition and focus being placed on B routes. C routes are mostly snow covered. Few wrecks being reported at this time. However, there has been little traffic about during the night.
