Louisville, Ky. (WDRB) -- Dozens of schools are closed or delayed following snow early Wednesday.
Metro Louisville received only a glancing blow of the storm that had bombarded the midwest. Roadways are wet, but there haven't been any major issues. In fact, Jefferson County Public Schools were open and on schedule.
But areas to the north are experiencing accumulations of up to three inches. Carroll County, Kentucky was among the hardest hit with three inches of snow.
High winds did cause some power outages on Tuesday night especially in southern Indiana.
Across the Metro Louisville, the story is sporadic power outages as strong winds knock lines loose and electric crews try to keep up.
At one point - the reports had as many as 5,000 without power... that went down to 500 for LG&E and then shot back up to 1,200 or more. As crews fix one set of downed lines, winds blow tree limbs into another set quickly.
Crews say to expect outages throughout the night as these winds continue.
Snow accumulated on side streets and rural roads in eastern Jefferson County and Oldham County late Tuesday.
