Light snow possible tonight!

Impacts should be minimal given the warm ground temps but some accumulation is possible on the grassy areas. Frost/Freeze concerns next couple mornings.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — From springtime 70s to winter-like in a matter of hours!   A cold front will be moving through tonight with a switch from rain to snow showers.  The precipitation will likely begin not long after 9pm.   A light coating of snow is possible overnight on the grass, but road conditions will just be wet.  

A Freeze Warning tonight north of the river through 10am tomorrow, and a Freeze Watch for all of the area tomorrow night – protect your plants!  (maps attached).   

The snow showers will be gone before sunrise tomorrow, and we’re left with chilly breezes and highs in the upper 40s and low 50s – about 20 degrees below normal for this time of year.   Frost is likely Thursday morning, then staying cool with highs in the 50s.  

We’re back to lower 60s Friday and Saturday.  The next system will bring light rain showers late Friday night through Saturday afternoon.  Clearing out and pleasant on Sunday in the mid-60s.   

A significant warm-up is expected next week, with highs around 80° next Tuesday!   Enjoy the wild weather ride!
