Heavy rain tapers; drizzly afternoon

Several rounds of rain/snow this week!

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — WEATHER STORY

  • Rain lightens up early afternoon 
  • Snow and ice possible Tuesday
  • Cold and unsettled through Thursday

We are waking up to widespread rain throughout Kentuckiana. We will have periods of dry time as we approach the afternoon, but stray showers will linger. Rainfall totals will average between 1/4" and 1/2" with locally higher amounts south. This is just the first day of a active stretch of weather.

The new week starts with a slight chance for a lingering shower early Monday. The main feature for the new week will be much cooler temperatures and a chance for wintry weather on Tuesday. Snow and ice are possible, but accumulations will be localized. The morning commute on Tuesday may be messy in those spots. Plan on morning lows in the low 20s and barely recovering into the 30s Tuesday afternoon.

By Wednesday, temperatures rebound back to the lower 40s. However, rain and snow does not stay away for long. We are looking at another chance for mostly just rain showers late Wednesday. That rain may transition to snow by Thursday morning as temperatures dip into the upper 20s. We will finally settle down and see the sunshine return by the end of the work week.


TODAY: Breezy with morning rain, then stray sprinkles late. High: 51°

 TONIGHT: Cloudy, wintry mix possible by morning Low: 35°
