Winter Weather is Coming; JCPS Cancels After-School Activities Because of Snow Threat
With the potential for bursts of snow, Louisville and the surrounding area are under a winter weather advisory until 2 a.m. Friday. Because of this, Jefferson County Public Schools is canceling all after-school activities for Thursday evening.
Louisville has a 50-percent chance of snow before 5 p.m., which could lead to accumulation of less than a half-inch, the National Weather Service said. Snow showers are likely Thursday night—between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m.—and could bring as much as an inch of accumulated snow.
The National Weather Service said:
All interstate corridors will be impacted in spots and motorists traveling should be prepared for rapidly deteriorating conditions on these roadways between 6 pm and midnight est.
Aside from slick spots on the roads, some of the snow storms could be intense and reduce visibility for motorists, the weather service said.
