March 2-3, 2014
Snow, Sleet and Freezing Rain Event


A low pressure system moving through the Tennessee Valley combined with a cold front dropping down across the Ohio Valley to produce widespread freezing rain, sleet and snow across the area March 2nd into March 3rd. The precipitation remained mainly snow along and north of Interstate 70. However, to the south, the precipitation began as rain and freezing rain before changing to sleet and then snow through the afternoon into the evening hours of March 2nd. Snow then continued along and south of the Ohio River through much of the night and on into the morning hours of March 3rd.
