WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR LOUISVILLE METRO and PART OF SOUTHERN INDIANA UNTIL 10:00 AM EASTERN FRIDAY SATURDAY MORNING
After a quick shot of light snow that totaled either side of 1” across much of Kentucky and Southern Indiana Friday morning, we are looking at another chance for a few flakes as we kick off the weekend. A fast moving but fairly weak wave of low pressure will slide through the Ohio Valley on Saturday bring another chance for some light snow, especially during the first half of the day. Overall totals should be less than Friday’s system with a light coating to maybe 1” north of I-64 but the impact should be limited to a few slick spots here and there during the morning hours. As temperatures climb into the mid and upper 30s, much of the snow will once again melt off, especially if we catch a few breaks in the clouds similar to Friday afternoon. It looks to be a cold start to Sunday with lows in the mid to upper 20s but temperatures will recover quickly into the upper 40s and low 50s ahead of our next storm system.
The beginning of next week looks wet with rain returning to the area thanks to another frontal system moving through. Afternoon highs look to be either side of the 50-degree mark Monday through Wednesday with Tuesday looking dry at this point. As we go deeper into next week the major model data isn’t synced up very well with our temperatures and rain chances. One is more wet and milder, while the other is dry and colder, but at this point more rain chances are possible late Wednesday and into Thursday before we dry out and cool down with highs only in the low 40s by next Friday. Have a good weekend!
