Winter weather: Mostly rain in Louisville, snow stays north

WLKY NEWS, BACK TO YOU. ALL RIGHT. THANKS A LOT, MAN. AND WE ARE TALKING ABOUT MAINLY JUST WET CONDITIONS OUT THERE. CERTAINLY, WE HAVE SEEN THAT SLUSHY SNOW. SO SOME OF THOSE SIDE STREETS MAY STILL BE SNOW COVERED AND A LITTLE BIT SLICK. BUT YOU CAN SEE WITH A LIVE LOOK INTO SOUTHERN INDIANA HERE FOR THE MOST PART, 65. AND IF YOU’RE DRIVING ON THE LEE HAMILTON, YOU’RE IN GOOD SHAPE. OBVIOUSLY, WE’RE STARTING TO BUILD SOME VOLUME AND THOSE VEHICLES REALLY HELP TO MELT SOME OF THAT SNOW. SO THAT’S SOME GOOD NEWS FOR US. SO AGAIN, THAT’S A LOOK RIGHT NEAR US OF 50 UP IN JACKSON COUNTY THIS MORNING IN GOOD SHAPE ON 65, AS WELL AS ON THE LEE HAMILTON. HOWEVER, WE ARE DEALING WITH SOME PROBLEMS AS WE TAKE THEM INTO NORTH VERNON. THEY HAVE DOWNED POWER LINES BLOCKING STATE STREET THAT’S RIGHT IN THE HEART OF NORTH VERNON, RIGHT NEAR FDR DRIVE. AND PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT WE ARE SEEING PLENTY OF POWER OUTAGES ALSO INTO JEFFERSON COUNTY. THAT MAY BE DUE TO SOME DOWNED POWER LINES ON STATE ROAD 56, RIGHT ON THE JEFFERSON SCOTT COUNTY LINE. SO PLEASE BE ADVISED AS WE HEAD THROUGHOUT THE DAY TODAY AND WE EXPECT TO SEE VERY WINDY CONDITIONS THAT COULD CONTINUE TO BE A PROBLEM. SO HERE’S WHAT WE’RE SEEING, CERTAINLY A COVERING OF SOME SLUSHY SNOW UP IN SEYMOUR. THIS IS OVER BY THE HIGH SCHOOL AND, OF COURSE, WITH SOME OF THAT RAIN THAT HELPED TO MELT SOME OF THE SNOW AS WELL. BUT CERTAINLY SOUTHERN INDIANA SEEING THE BULK OF THIS SNOW THIS MORNING OR ALL OF THE SNOW WHERE WE JUST HAVE SOME WET CONDITIONS IS SHOWING UP IN THE METRO HERE THIS MORNING. HOWEVER, WE DO HAVE A FEW PROBLEM SPOTS. THE GENE SNYDER SOUTHBOUND RIGHT NEAR PRESTON. WE’RE DEALING WITH A NON-INJURY ACCIDENT THERE FOR THE MOST PART. LOOKING GOOD ON 65 AS WELL AS ON THE WATERSON HERE THIS MORNING. AND THEN YOU CAN SEE OVER BY THE TUNNELS, WE DID HAVE A REPORT OF AN ACCIDENT ON THE JEANNE SNYDER. BUT FOR THE MOST PART, TRAFFIC IS MOVING FAIRLY WELL. RIGHT NOW IT IS 656. LET’S CHECK IN WITH MATT. ALL RIGHT, SUZANNE SNOW FOR SOME RAIN FOR OTHERS. THAT’S WHAT WE’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT ALL MORNING LONG. ALSO, IT’S PROMPTED SOME DELAYS AND CLOSURES FOR THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. THAT’S AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN AS WE LOOK AT THE SKIES OVER DOWNTOWN LOUISVILLE, THEY ARE CLOUDY. WE ARE WET. WE’VE BEEN DAMP ALL NIGHT LONG WITH RAIN SHOWERS AND TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER THIRTIES, ALI, INTERNATIONAL 3938 AT BOWMAN FIELD, 37 KELLENBERGER AND FORT KNOX AND 38 IN ELIZABETHTOWN. SO NOW WE’RE STARTING TO SEE ALL THESE NUMBERS GET A LITTLE FARTHER AWAY FROM FREEZING. AND ESPECIALLY AS YOU HEAD NORTH, THAT’S GOING TO HELP SOME OF THE ROAD CONDITIONS THAT SUZANNE WAS SHOWING YOU EARLIER. 40 IN BARDSTOWN, 41 IN LITCHFIELD, 34 POLICE, SEYMOUR AND MADISON. WHILE OVERALL, THE TREND IN THE RADAR HAS BEEN FOR MORE RAIN LIFTING NORTH. NOTICE STILL A FEW OF THESE PINK AND BLUE SHADES MIXING IN OVER TO THE BOYS COUNTY JASPER DOWN NEAR HUNTING BERG. STILL A LITTLE BIT OF LIGHT SNOW MIXING IN. BUT JUST CHECKED IN WITH BEDFORD, INDIANA. MOST OF WHAT IS FALLING THERE AS WELL AS INTO SEYMOUR, HAS BEEN LIGHT RAIN. WE’LL CONTINUE TO HAVE SOME SHOWER ACTIVITY. A WARM FRONT LIFTS OUR WAY. WE’LL TAKE THIRTIES INTO THE FORTIES BY LATE MORNING AND THEN A COLD FRONT SWINGS ON THROUGH. THAT’LL HAVE OUR TEMPERATURES DROPPING. WE’LL TOP OUT AROUND 49 MIDDAY AND THEN START TO COME DOWN THROUGH THE FORTIES WILL IN THE AFTERNOON AT 39. CLOUDY SKIES THROUGH A GOOD CHUNK OF THE AFTERNOON LOW IN CHANCES AND JUST SOME PATCHY LIGHT RAIN AND DRIZZLE KEEP US DAMP THROUGH THE DAY. AND AS WE MOVE INTO TONIGHT, START TO SEE THOSE NUMBERS DROP A LITTLE FARTHER INTO THE THIRTIES. WE COULD MIX BACK IN A FEW SNOWFLAKES. IT’S THIS AREA OF LOW PRESSURE THAT’S MOVING INTO THE OHIO RIVER VALLEY AND BOTH THE WARM AND COLD FRONT THAT WILL HAVE IMPACTS ON OUR WEATHER TODAY. WE’RE GOING TO TURN OUR ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE WINTRY WEATHER AND TOWARDS WIND ADVISORY CONDITIONS AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE AFTERNOON. GUSTS 40 TO 50 MILES PER HOUR FROM NEAR THE METRO AND POINTS OFF TOWARDS THE SOUTH AND EAST. SO WE’LL KEEP OUR GUARD UP FOR THOSE HIGH WIND GUSTS AS THOSE FRONTS MOVE THROUGH AND CHANGE UP OUR TEMPERATURES. WE’LL ALSO KEEP SOME LIGHT RAIN AND DRIZZLE IN THE FORECAST AS THE MAJORITY OF ANY WINTRY WEATHER LIFTS OFF TOWARDS THE NORTH AND WEST WHERE THAT’S WHERE THE LION’S SHARE OF THE SNOW IS GOING TO BE, IS UP TOWARDS INDY AND CENTRAL PORTIONS OF INDIANA AND ILLINOIS. BY 5:00, WE’RE MAINLY DRY, BUT STILL CLOUDY. WE’LL STILL BE DAMP OVERALL BECAUSE THE LACK OF SUNSHINE IS GOING TO KEEP US ON THAT WET SIDE. AND THEN AS WE MOVE INTO TONIGHT, HERE’S THE OPPORTUNITY FOR A LITTLE BIT OF SOME FLURRIES ACTIVITY, MAYBE EVEN A LIGHT SNOW SHOWER OFF AND ON THROUGH THE DAY TOMORROW, IT’S GOING TO BE CHILLY. I DON’T SEE MUCH IN THE WAY OF ANY ACCUMULATION BECAUSE TEMPERATURES WILL BE A LITTLE BIT ABOVE FREEZING, BUT WE’LL BE STUCK IN THE THIRTIES THROUGH THE DAY TOMORROW AT 36. A LITTLE BREEZY AS WELL. SO THAT’S GOING TO BE A COLD DAY. FRIDAY WE BREAK BACK OUT INTO SOME SUNSHINE AND IT’S REALLY A PERFECTLY NORMAL LATE JANUARY DAY WITH LOWS IN THE TWENTIES AND HIGHS IN THE MIDDLE FOUR DAYS. MILDER FIFTIES COME BACK OUR DIRECTION FOR THE WEEKEND WHILE WE’RE DRY. SATURDAY AT 53. WE’LL HAVE SOME SHOWER OPPORTUNITIES SUNDAY BUT IT LOOKS LIKE THE BEST CHANCE FOR RAIN OUTSIDE OF WHAT’S GOING TO FALL TODAY WILL COME TUESDAY NEXT WEEK. 55 DEGREES, THOUGH, OVERALL. SOME OF THE MILD OR WEATHER THAT WE’VE HAD THIS JANUARY MAY HAVE HELPED US OUT A LITTLE BIT TO THIS MORNING AFTER HIGHS IN THE UPPER FORTIES NEAR 50. YES. TODAY. SO WE’RE GOING TO HOPE WE KEEP THE ROADS ON THE WET SIDE AND WE’LL DO OUR BEST WITH THOSE BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW SOMETIMES THOSE CAN BE TROUBLESOME AS WELL. AND OF COURSE, WE’RE GOING TO BE WATCHING OUT FOR THOSE WINDS LATER TODAY. YOU KNOW, WE SAW OBVIOUSLY TRAGIC CONDITIONS WITH THOSE STRONG WINDS LAST WEEK AND WITH WINDS OF 40 TO 50 MILES PER HOUR. WE’RE GOING TO WATCH FOR SOME POWER LINES, TOO. YEP. TEMPERATURES GOING UP AND DOWN TODAY WITH THOSE WINDS AS WELL. KEEP THE JACKETS ON, WHETHER OR NOT IT’

Winter weather: Mostly rain in Louisville, snow stays north

It's mainly just wet in Louisville, but snow did fall in part of the region overnight. The winter weather advisory is now only for our Indiana counties through noon, with some of the more central counties through 7 p.m.Rain has been falling overnight in Louisville and counties to the south, but it's been snow in our Indiana counties. Here's what a couple of viewers woke up to on Wednesday morning in Southern Indiana. As of 5:30 a.m., some of southern Indiana had 2 or more inches, but rain has been melting much of that snow away. That will likely continue through the morning hours. With temperatures staying above freezing combined with the relatively warm ground temperatures, roadways for the Wednesday morning commute around Louisville are expected to be mainly just wet. So far, no major problems on the roads there or in southern Indiana, but you are still advised to drive with caution with some isolated wet slick spots and the possibility for ponding. We are also expecting high winds Wednesday with gusts between 40-50 mph. Some power outages could occur throughout the day due to high winds following the heavy wet snowfall some areas got. The Jefferson County, Indiana courthouse is without power at this time.Another push of cooler air may bring light snow showers to the area Wednesday night into Thursday, but warmer air will return by the weekend.

Snow + rain = SLUSH! ❄️🌨️ This is what it looks like in Hanover, Indiana this morning. We pulled into a gas station off Highway 56. It’s raining out, but it IS packing snow for those willing to brave the conditions to go out & make a snowman! ☃️ #winterweather @WLKY pic.twitter.com/msj3rqOTLw
