Winter Weather Invades Clark County

Published 1:28 pm Saturday, March 12, 2022

Old Man Winter made his–hopefully–last stand this weekend.

Seasonable temperatures gave way to colder air and a blowing snowstorm Friday evening into Saturday morning as an arctic front moved across Clark County.

Louisville’s National Weather Service office placed the area under a winter storm warning from 10 p.m. Friday to 10 a.m. Saturday.

Temperatures began to crash early in the evening, and later in the night, heavy snow made travel treacherous.
By 6:30 a.m. Saturday, the Clark County Road and Solid Waste Department reported in a social media that three to six inches of snow had fallen across the area. The post also said that some roads were covered back up as soon as they were scrapped due to blowing snow.

Allan Curtis, the county road supervisor, told the Sun in a text message conversation that all local roads were passable by noon, though there were still some slushy and slick spots.

Forecasters predict that the cold snap will be short-lived as temperatures will rebound into the 40s on Sunday and into the 50s and 60s early next week. Remember, spring is a just about a week away, March 20
