Heavy snow skips the majority of Kentuckiana

A tricky winter storm system dumped snow in southern and eastern Kentucky, but Louisville and Indiana didn't see much accumulation.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The weekend snow event didn't bring much accumulation to the metro area or southern Indiana.

A few scattered snow showers on Saturday left a dusting in parts of Kentuckiana, but the main event on Sunday dumped snow in southern and eastern Kentucky.

For most of our area, including Louisville it was a low-impact event with some areas picking up an inch or less of snow. Road crews were out in force to treat bridges, the interstates and main arteries.

A Winter Storm Watch has been posted from 6 a.m. on Sunday to 1 a.m. Monday, including Adair, Green, and Taylor counties. 

Areas under the watch have the highest potential for seeing heavy wet snow snowfall, accumulating between 2" to 4" or more. Take caution or avoid traveling to southern and eastern Kentucky on Sunday.

For the last several days, this forecast has proved to be tricky to nail down. Below are four different weather models for the same time period showing snowfall totals Saturday through Sunday evening.

Next week, a quick move clipper may bring light snow Monday morning for Kentuckiana. Tuesday will be a quiet, sunny, and not quite as cold day. A cold front will bring a few light rain showers on Wednesday.
