Kevin Harned says snow is likely for Valentine’s Day

Posted: Updated:

Winter Weather Advisory for most of our area from 10 a.m. Friday until 4 a.m. Saturday

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Our sunshine is about to take a break for a couple of days as we have yet another storm system moving in. 

It looks quiet tonight with lows into the 20s, but Friday will be a changeable day. It still start off dry, but snow will quickly break out across Indiana first by late morning to midday. That snow will works its way south into the I-64 corridor by mid-afternoon. 

This will be a heavy/wet snow that will mainly cause visibility issues first. Roads should start off wet and slushy, but then become snow-covered the closer we get to sunset and slick roads look likely Friday night as we drop into the teens. 

As far as amounts, areas along and north of I-64 run the greatest risk for 2" to 4" with isolated higher amounts certainly reachable as this system will actually get stronger as it passes through our region. South of I-64, warmer air will likely win out allowing for rain to start then wet snow that melts for several hours. Our southern counties may get cold enough for a light coating before it ends Friday evening. 

The weekend will feature another light(er) snow chance Saturday night with a good warm-up starting Sunday.
