*Winter Weather Advisory from 7pm EST today - 6AM EST Thursday*
A wintry mix is heading out way later this afternoon and evening as an upper-level low pressure system moves closer to Kentuckiana. Temperatures will hover just above or below freezing through the early overnight with sleet, freezing rain, and a few snowflakes possible. Light icing of .25” or less expected, mainly on elevated surfaces (trees, deck, porch, bridges, overpasses). Areas mainly north of Louisville could see an inch or less of a snow/sleet mix as well. By sunrise, most areas will be above freezing, so any ice will be melting off pretty quickly early Thursday. The cold rain will taper off mid-late morning, then a brief period of light snow/flurries is likely by late afternoon/evening tomorrow (little to no accumulations). So all in all, we will have primarily wet roads, but watching for slick/icy spots tonight. A dry pattern is setting up for the weekend and through much of next week and for Thanksgiving, but below normal temps will continue. A brief period of a light rain/snow mix possible Sunday night, otherwise enjoy some drier time ahead!
TONIGHT: Rain and a wintry mix. Low: 31. Wind: NE 10-20 mph.
THURSDAY: Morning rain, then cloudy with drizzle. High: 41. Wind: SE 5-10 mph.
