LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --  Louisville wakes up to its largest snow fall of the season.

Roads overnight were covered by snow leaving drivers  to deal with very slick conditions.  As the snow began to slow, plows were able to get roads in better shape. 

The official snow report at Louisville International Airport stands at five inches for the snow event. But it has been a snowy winter by Louisville standards with 19.1 inches so far. Shelbyville, Kentucky is under 6.8 inches of snow.

Jefferson County Public Schools closed for its sixth snow day of the year.  The district holds a meeting today to consider whether to use February 24 and 25 as make up days.

Crews from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and Metro Public Works worked through the night to keep up with the fast-falling snow.
