LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A storm has dropped up to 7 inches or more of snow in Kentucky's second round of winter weather in a week.

Despite the mess, the snow storm didn't appear to do much damage as it moved eastward toward the mountains. Kentucky Emergency Management director Buddy Rogers says there haven't been any reports of emergencies or major accidents.

Meteorologist Joe Ammerman of the National Weather Service in Louisville says the new system dropped snow Tuesday on top of the remnants of a storm a week ago.

The storm prompted school systems and courthouses across the state to close for the day. A judge in Smithland, in western Kentucky, postponed jury selection in a murder trial because of the weather.

Rogers says once the snow stops, what was slush and water is likely to refreeze on the roadways. He says road crews will continue working to try to keep them clear.
