Snow Falls Across The State; Eastern KY Hardest Hit

JACKSON, Ky. (AP) - A winter storm has dumped snow across eastern Kentucky, with smaller accumulations in the rest of the state.

The weather caused scattered school closings, including in Fayette County, which is one of the state's larger districts.

The National Weather Service's snow warning for areas around Harlan and Whitesburg in far southeastern Kentucky expires Thursday at 1 a.m. EST.

A wider warning for several counties in eastern Kentucky lasts through Wednesday night.

Forecasters say the wider area received about two inches of snow Tuesday night and up to another two inches was expected Wednesday,
creating slick roadways throughout the region.
