what to expect

Here’s a look at the expected timeline tonight into Monday morning.

Around midnight, a light wintry mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain, and rain moves in. The northern half of our region sees a spotty mixture of snow, sleet, and freezing rain. Our southern counties along the state border primarily begin with sleet and freezing rain, but some flakes are possible. Through the overnight period, it becomes mainly pockets of freezing rain and rain. By about 8 A.M. to 10 A.M. Monday, the precipitation should transition completely to rain.

 

There could be icy areas before the complete transition over to rain, so use caution during the morning commute. Traveling may be slow and slick where roads are covered with snow and ice. Allow for some extra time for the morning.
