Just days after experiencing some light flooding, Clark County got a taste of freezing rain.
While conditions were wet and icy, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet road crews patrolled the roadways Tuesday evening to treat any potential slick areas, according to a press release from the KYTC.
There were no accidents reported Tuesday night despite the icy conditions.
“I think we missed the gun,” Clark County Emergency Management Director Gary Epperson said. “I think they cancelled a lot of school events in central Kentucky. We were lucky here. No tractor trailers turning over on the interstate or anything like that.”
According to the Kentucky Mesonet, Clark County saw .26 inches of rain last night, most of which froze quickly.
That has just added to an already wet January. More than 2.5 inches of rain has fallen halfway through the month.
According to the Weather Underground’s website, the ice pellets could continued today with a 30 percent chance of precipitation.
The rain is expected to end Thursday, according to weather reports.
