A layer of snow blanketed Eastern Kentucky overnight and into Wednesday, though the impact was not as severe as originally forecast.

Predicted snowfall totals were lowered Tuesday evening as initial forecasts early this week called for accumulations of up to six inches through Wednesday. Some areas of Perry County received up to two inches, though roads were generally clear Wednesday morning.

County and state road crews were busy treating primary and secondary routes, as the National Weather Service is calling for continued snowfall throughout the day on Wednesday, with additional accumulation of less than an inch possible. Snow showers are most likely between the hours of 4 and 5 p.m. Scattered showers are predicted throughout the evening with a low of 14 degrees overnight.

Thanksgiving Day in Perry County should be more hospitable, with sunny skies and a high of 37 degrees.
