Louisville looks to have a wet Christmas night -- and maybe snow on Wednesday.

Rain is expected to move into the Louisville area Tuesday evening, and the precipitation would stay until Wednesday evening, said Tom Reaugh, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service.

Louisville may get about an inch of precipitation through Wednesday, Reaugh said. As much as two inches are possible further north. That, of course, could change as Wednesday gets nearer.
