Winter Weather Advisory scaled back for WAVE Country

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A period of wintry weather is expected late this afternoon and into the evening for parts of the WAVE 3 News viewing area. This weather event is on the backside of a developing winter storm along the east coast. 

We expect a band of rain and sleet through mid-afternoon which will change to snow for the late afternoon and evening; however this band will mainly affect areas east of Interstate 65. 

Since temperatures will not drop to or below freezing until after sunset, accumulations will be limited. Expecting a dusting a best for areas seeing precipitation with perhaps an inch of snow from Frankfort south to Columbia.  With temperatures crashing into the mid-20s tonight, slick spots will remain possible overnight. Therefore, a Winter Weather Advisory has been posted for areas east of I-65 through 7 a.m. Wednesday. Those areas include the following counties in

Kentucky:

  • Adair County
  • Green County
  • Marion County
  • Taylor County
  • Washington County 

In addition, expect cold wind chills in the single digits for some Wednesday morning with additional snow showers.
