Default Snow in KY-Just curious.

I'm moving to Louisville, KY in the next couple of mos. I've heard you guys get snow-so what's it like-does the whole city shut down or do they have equipment to move it? Also, when does it start to get cold there? Living in the deep south you get use to wearing shorts and flip flops through Thanksgiving. As for snow-my kids have no concept.

It really depends on the year. It is very variable. For example, we had a mild winter this year with hardly any measurable snow. On average, we get around 17 inches of snow a winter. Usually the biggest snow is 3-4 inches, but we have had an event every 5-10 years where we get one big storm drop 16 inches!


The best way to see the weather is to look at climate data:

I would compare those average with your hometown averages. Everybody always likes to stereotype the weather where they live, but only the true averages give you an idea of what it is like. As you can see, Louisville's climate is fairly mild. There are only two months where the average low temperature is below freezing. Jan and Feb are usually the coldest months by far.

its usually not bad here at all. and it deffiniately doesnt shut down the city, after that happened in 1994 UPS almost left and the city wasnt goin to let that happen, we usually dont get any snow days, we are lucky if we get one. it can get kinda cold though.

We haven't had a big snow in 4 years, a bigger snow than this in 14.
