LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for most of the WDRB viewing area beginning tonight at 7 p.m. It's set to expire around 1 p.m. Wednesday.
Some areas could see snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches, which could lead to slick roads and hazardous travel conditions, especially during the Wednesday morning rush hour.
With snow in the forecast, Louisville's Metro Snow Removal teams are on high alert. Bridges and overpasses were treated Monday night, and a tweet from the city's Twitter account (#LouSnowPlow) says crews are gearing up for tonight's expected snow.
"Obviously Public Works is ready for any eventuality," said Mayor Greg Fischer. "We really missed a major hit all year. It is pretty warm, relatively speaking, so I think the temperatures are going to bottom out around 32 degrees, so we are monitoring it we will be out on the roads and ready to remove the snow."
With the rain and wet roads, the Mayor says crews can't brine in advance, but they are standing by. Plan extra time for the Wednesday morning commute and drive slowly on snow covered roads.
Also, westerly wind gusts from 30 to 35 mph overnight could cause blowing snow and reduced visibility.
Weather models change every four to six hours, so stay with Marc Weinberg during tonight's newscasts and follow the WDRB Weather Team 24/7 for the latest updates.
