WAVE 3 News Storm Tracking Team Chief Meteorologist Kevin Harned
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Much of WAVE Country is under a winter storm warning tonight.
Chief Storm Tracking Team Meteorologist Kevin Harned says expect a wide variety of precipitation across the area with the best chance for freezing rain and/or sleet along Interstate 64. Kevin says the best chance for sleet and snow is across southern Indiana and the best chance for heavy snow is in the far northern counties of our viewing area. Areas south of Louisville should expect a mix of sleet and freezing rain with a better chance to warm to just plain rain. Kevin says the weather setup is highly temperature sensitive.
Prepare for icing on roads, sidewalks, power lines and trees. Power outages could occur if the ice causes lines and branches to fall.
