Snow ends, but cold brings little melting

LOUISVILLE, KY (AP) - Some light snow continues over eastern Kentucky, but the major weather issues in the state are cold temperatures and slick roads.

There have been at least two weather-related traffic fatalities. The crashes Thursday afternoon occurred in Hardin and Union counties.

At the National Weather Service office in Jackson, forecaster Anthony Richey said most of the snow had pushed out of the state Friday morning, after dropping as much as three inches at Mount. Sterling, Sharpsburg and Salyers.

Little melting was expected on Friday, despite a brighter day. Temperatures were expected to remain below freezing.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet cautioned that driving conditions across the state are difficult, with snowy and icy roads.
