Winter Storm Warning starts at 3 AM

Check WHAS-11 or for the latest.

Here's what Ken Schulz has to say:
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Friday and Saturday for counties along the Ohio River in both Kentucky and southern Indiana. These counties are: Jefferson, Scott, Washington, Orange, Dubois, Perry, Crawford, Harrison, Clark and Floyd Counties in Indiana. And in Kentucky: Trimble, Henry, Oldham, Jefferson, Meade and Breckinridge Counties. The rest of southern Indiana is under a Winter Storm Watch for Friday and Saturday and the rest of central and southern Kentucky is also under a Winter Storm Watch from late Friday into Saturday. No matter where you are, you will be feeling the effects of this latest winter storm.

Snow mixed with sleet and rain will start developing in the area after 5 Friday morning. This area will expand to include all of Kentuckiana by mid morning. Precipitation will be mostly a heavy wet snow for southern Indiana and the northern counties of Kentucky, although a little sleet and rain may also mix in during the day. Through central and southern Kentucky, precipitation will likely be mostly rain, mixed at times with a little sleet and snow. Driving conditions will be the worst across southern Indiana and northern Kentucky during the day Friday but we’re hoping that the main roads will remain slushy to wet during the daylight hours.[...]

Total snow accumulations are still up for some debate but nearly everybody is thinking that the heaviest snowfall totals will end up on either side of the Ohio River. So figure two counties deep on each side of the Ohio will receive 4 to 8 inches of snow. Surrounding that band and for the rest of our area will be a snow band of 1 to 4” which will include central Indiana and central and southern Kentucky. See, I told you nobody will escape this one.
Drive safely, if you must be out on the roads.
