LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The winter weather hit the area just after rush hour Tuesday night.
Our crews watched the weather change as they traveled from Hardin County 60 miles north into Southern Indiana.
The roads were dry in Elizabethtown Tuesday evening, but crews were ready to tackle the winter weather headed their way.
The Hardin County Road Department has 12 crews on the clock tonight, and a dozen more on standby.
As they watch the weather, trucks are on the road further north. Conditions turned from rain to sleet then snow near Sellersburg.
Several drivers ran off the roads and the slick spots forced others to pull over.
A man driving home from Lexington says he did not expect the wintry mix.
"Left there about 6pm so I made pretty good time until we got here and as I was at the airport this way I was like wow what's going on here so it completely changed," said Kayrouz.
If you are forced to head out in this weather, slow down and plan for extra travel time.
Stay with WDRB news in the morning for the latest on road conditions and Snow Fox will have school closings and delays.
