Mother nature may be piling more snow on top of what we already received come Wednesday night and Thursday.A storm developing out west will take aim at the Ohio Valley Wednesday night into Thursday afternoon. A winter storm watch has been issued for areas south of Louisville (generally south of the parkways) for Wednesday night and Thursday.While this will not be a huge snowstorm, several inches of snow will be possible. At this time, we are expecting generally light snow on the order of 1 to 3″ over southern Indiana – south through Louisville and then down to near the Parkways.
