Second Winter Sytem Brings Icy
Conditions To The Region
The second winter weather system of the week brought a round of freezing rain to much of the region early Sunday. The freezing rain spread across the region in the early morning hours and continued until about mid-morning.
The National Weather Service early Sunday morning issued an Ice Storm Warning for Trigg, Christian, Todd, Calloway, and Muhlenberg County, while leaving most of the rest of the region under a Winter Weather Advisory. The Ice Storm Warning and the Winter Weather Advisory were cancelled shortly after 11:00am Sunday.
Road conditions, even on main thoroughfares, were slick and hazardous through the early morning hours, As the morning went on, and temperatures began to rise, conditions began to improve across the region.
As for power concerns, Pennyrile Electric did report some outage issues, primarily in the areas they serve in Todd and Logan County, with the largest problem area being reported in northern Todd County. The other problem area reported in the Todd County District was in Allensville. The biggest problem areas in Pennyrile's Russellville District were north of Lewisburg and the area of Huntsville Quality Road.
Sunday church services were a big casuality of this latest round of winter weather. Most churches elected to cancel their Sunday services, while most of those that did decide to have services made modifications to their Sunday schedules in consideration of the safety of their members.
