LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Another light snow event that could highly impact morning travel conditions on Tuesday. The latest data continues to suggest snow will break out as early as 3 or 4 a.m., but may take a bit to reach the ground.
Therefore we feel the highest threat period of accumulating snow looks to be from about 5 a.m. through 9 a.m. or 10 a.m. We should start off with temperatures near freezing when the snow begins but Arctic air will usher in throughout the morning to drop those numbers. This means untreated roads likely to worsen throughout the morning. Snow amounts will highly vary from NE sections to our SW sections. Ranges look to be on the order of 1" or less for SW and 1'' to 2" in the Metro with a few 3" possible, but isolated. NE sections more likely to be in that 2'' to 5" snow range. Since this is a developing storm changes are likely.
In addition to the snow, the winds will gust at times so blowing snow could become travel issue as well. Quite the change coming compared to Monday.
Tonight: Winter Weather Advisory as of 1 a.m. Dry most of the night, snow chance after 3 a.m. Low: Near 32 by rush hour
Tuesday: Winter Weather Advisory ending by 1 p.m. Morning steady snow, windy. High: Falling from 32 early in the day to 19 by afternoon rush hour.
Tuesday night: Clearing skies, cold. Low: 8
Wednesday: Another chance for light snow moving in. High: 19
