Judge declares Level Two Snow Emergency

Tuesday morning, Grant County was blanketed in winter white as a winter weather advisory was upgraded to a winter storm warning.

Snow and ice covered roads made many secondary roads impassable. Frigid temperatures also made treating roads difficult for road crews.
Grant County Judge-Executive Darrell Link declared a Level Two Snow Emergency, meaning only motorists whose travel is necessary should be on roadways. The Level Two Snow Emergency was down graded to a Level One Snow Emergency at 3 p.m.

The cold and snow forced cancellation of Grant County and Williamstown schools on Tuesday, Jan. 21 and Wednesday, Jan. 22.
Circuit Court Judge Stephen Bates closed the Grant County Justice Center due to weather on Jan. 21.

Northern Kentucky, along with Jefferson, Oldham and Trimble counties received the most snowfall, while Central Kentucky received 1 to 3 inches of snow and Western Kentucky received 1 to 2 inches. Wind gusts reached 10 to 20 miles per hour.

There is a 40 percent chance of more snow on Saturday, but temperatures are expected to be below freezing for the next five days.
