LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- There will be a media briefing at 11:30 this morning regarding the winter storm expected this afternoon that is projected to bring freezing rain.

The storm warning issued by the National Weather Service begins at 4 p.m. Tuesday and continues through 7 a.m. Wednesday.


The city's emergency response team including Public Works, MetroSafe, LMPD and others will be available along with representatives from LG&E and JCPS.

According to WDRB Meteorologist Jude Redfield, the storm is expected to hit late this afternoon and continue into the evening. No precipitation is expected until later this afternoon.  

We should have temperatures in the upper 20s around lunch time, with overcast skies. Between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., a wintry mix will move into Metro Louisville, and there's a 100 percent chance for precipitation, possibly freezing, in the Louisville area between 5 and 6 p.m. Whether or not it ends up becoming freezing rain depends on the temperature, which could be right at or below freezing.  

This system also brings with it the possibility of thunderstorms. Although freezing rain is likely, conditions similar to the ice storm in 2009 are not expected.

The briefing will be at the MetroSafe Emergency Operations Center, 3rd floor of the MetroSafe building at 410 S. 5th St.
