MetroSafe Chief: Tornado Warning Error Was Avoidable

MetroSafe Director Doug Hamilton says there was confusion among emergency management supervisors who, “overly relied” on a National Weather Service radio system that issued the warning. The warning
was not picked up by MetroSafe and as a result no sirens were sounded.

Light Snow Expected Today

The temperature is in the upper 30’s this morning, but it’s expected to drop to near freezing in the next couple hours. As that happens, the light rain will change over to snow. The snow isn’t expected to be heavy, but it could range from 1-2 inches. Most of the snow accumulation will be on grass and elevated surfaces, but roads and overpasses might become slushy.

Snow To Be Followed By Cold Front

Forecasters are predicting two and four inches of snow for the Louisville area Tuesday. After that, a cold front will come through, bringing winds and frigid temperatures for much of the week. National Weather Service meteorologist John Denman says the snow and cold is the latest in what has been a surprisingly chilly and wet winter.
