LOUISVILLE, Ky. — UPDATE: ISP Sellerburg announced that they've already worked on four crashes this morning. They advise everyone to, "PLEASE slow down and give extra space and time as you commute today."

Are you ready for the snow? Whether you are or not, it's here!

We enjoyed several weeks of above average temperatures so far this season across Kentuckiana. However, the warmth is coming to a screeching halt.

A much colder air mass is in the place and that translates to temperatures 30 degrees colder from what we have enjoyed. 

A disturbance moving northeast through the Ohio Valley will likely produce some snow showers. Minor accumulations up to an inch are possible, mainly on elevated surfaces and grassy areas. The chance for snow showers stretches from the parkways north. South of the parkway will be light rain showers. 

All of this being said, no need to bring out the snow shovels just yet. 

Snowfall impacts will be minimal. What does fall won't amount to much more than a dusting on grassy and elevated surfaces. Ground temperatures are far too warm to see anything stick to the roads and the snowfall will be limited to the morning hours. Nonetheless, it will likely make for a picturesque view of the city if you are up early enough to see flakes flying. 

Daytime highs both days this weekend will only be in the lower 40s with wind chills in the 30s. 

This chilly trend does not look to move out any time soon. We are looking at highs in the 40s each day in the upcoming week with overnight lows at or below freezing. 

We have a few more opportunities to see a rain/snow mix beyond Saturday. We are watching for the showers Tuesday morning as well as Thursday.
