A winter weather front moved through Logan County in three waves Sunday, bringing between two and three inches of snow with larger amounts in higher elevations. Another cold front moved through the county Tuesday bringing sleet, freezng rain and rain.
And the bitter winter of 2013-14 just keeps coming.
Are you ready for it to quit?
No such luck, as two other fronts are expected to bring more winter weather to the area Thursday and Saturday. Chances of freezing rain, sleet or snow are put at between 30 percent and 50 percent.
Sunday’s snow began around 9:30 a.m. and fell heavily at times. Two other bands of snow fell Sunday afternoon and early evening. Sleet and rain also fell over the area Sunday.
However, the winter precipitation didn’t prove much of a problem for motorists, according to the Logan County Sheriff’s Department and the Paris Police Department. One accident was reported in Paris and one in the county. However, the Sheriff’s Department had five reports of vehicles off the road surface. Both departments reported no injuries.
Streets in Paris were dry Monday and schools in northern Logan County were open Monday.
Tuesday’s front entered the area overnight and forced closure of the Paris School District. Temperatures during the day hovered around freezing and were expected to be in the 20s for the high today (Wednesday).
Those who are weary of the winter weather should know that another weather-related event took place Sunday. Sunday was Ground Hog Day and he saw his shadow, which means six more weeks of winter, according to Ground Hog Day folklore.
