So far, it hasn't been much of a winter. The past five days have been well above average with one day climbing up to 64 degrees!

We have had a few days with flurries, but still no measurable snow has fallen this winter at the official observing site in Louisville.  The latest first measurable snow on record at Louisville occurred during the 1931-32 season, when measurable snow finally arrived on March 5 (1.5").

Changes are on the way the next seven days. A low pressure system will bring periods of rain Wednesday with more mild temperatures in the low 50s. A cold front will race in behind the low Wednesday night bringing falling temperatures and the chance for snow flurries on Thursday. We might be able to pick up a light dusting on the grassy surfaces, but not much. One thing is for sure, it will definitely feel like winter by the end of the week with temperatures plumeting into the 30s Thursday and Friday.
