Most Severe Weather To Stay North Of Louisville

by Sheila Ash

The large winter storm crossing the country this week is expected to bring strong winds, rain and light snow to Louisville.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Brian Schoettmer says Louisville and southern Indiana will see rain for most of Tuesday. The storm could bring about an inch of snow to the area, but Schoettmer says the wind is the biggest threat.

“…25, 35 mile an hour gusts into 45 mile an hour at times so any snow that is going to be blowing around through the overnight hours and by dawn will be blowing around could reduce visibilities,” he says.

Schoettmer says the temperatures will drop overnight and wind chills could be 10 degrees or lower by morning.

The weather will be more severe further north, with freezing rain expected for Salem and Scottsburg, Indiana.
