According to WDRB meteorologist Jude Redfield, about an inch to an-inch-and-a half of light, fluffy snow fell late Thursday. Crews were able to clear most of the main roads, but winds up to 25 made blowing snow a problem.
This latest snowfall puts us close to 5 inches for the season, and more snow is in the forecast.
With wind chills below zero, experts are warning parents to keep an eye on children who may be eager to enjoy a snow day outside because of the danger posed by the bone-chilling cold.
We spoke with Dr. Rebecca Starr, an ER doctor at Kosair Children's Hospital. She told us to limit the time outside to about 10 to 15 minutes.
"If you do see your children saying my fingers are starting to get tingly ... and you do see some discoloration ... (and) it's not your typical pink color, certainly go inside."
Starr says it's important to re-warm cold extremities, but avoid immersing them in water that's too hot. Instead, she recommends putting them in lukewarm water to gradually bring the temperature back up.
To illustrate just how cold it is, WDRB Reporter Rachel Collier filled an ice tray with water. After 20 minutes the water had frozen (although not completely).
