Winter weather in Louisville: How much snow could the city see Monday night?

Must read

While Louisville is expected to see some harsh winter weather late Monday evening, just how much snowfall residents will wake up to early Tuesday morning has yet to be determined by local meteorologists.

Across central Kentucky, rain will turn into wet, heavy snow Monday night, with accumulation likely to happen between 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. Tuesday morning, according to the latest forecast from the National Weather Service in Louisville.

A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect for the region at 7 p.m. that is expected to last until Tuesday morning. Roadways are expected to be slick and hazardous, so those who are traveling at night or early Tuesday morning have been encouraged to practice caution.

There may be heavy snowfall in the region, with current predictions up to 4 inches of accumulation possible in some areas. Louisville has about a 26% chance of at least one inch of accumulated snowfall, meteorologists said.

With central Kentucky and parts of Southern Indiana making up the impacted region, the National Weather Service has not determined yet where the heaviest accumulation will be.
