LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Here are 10 things Kentuckiana will be talking about today:

1. Winter Weather, Round 1 - Ice is falling from the skies across much of WAVE Country, and soon it will turn to snow. Snow totals will vary.

2. Winter Weather, Round 2 - This isn't a "one and done" weather event. Bitter cold temperatures will give way to a second round of winter precipitation over the weekend. This time, snow will turn to ice on Sunday. Kevin Harned and the WAVE 3 News Storm Tracking Team say it could be as bad or worse as what we'll get today.
