Freezing rain and sleet will continue for another couple of hours before surface temps finally warm above 32 degrees. The icy mix will then change to plain rain for the overnight period. Temperatures will continue to climb through the evening with the high likely taking place before midnight.
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY continues this evening because of the dangerous road conditions due to minor ice accumulations.
An area of low pressure is expected to develop along it returning moisture to the area but in the form of snow. We could see a period of mixing before it changes to all snow. Preliminary totals are expected around 3 to 6”, with the higher amounts located to the south. Please know snow amounts may change depending on where the front stalls.
WINTER STORM WATCH goes into effect Wednesday night into early Thursday morning. This could be a significant storm with major impact on the morning commute Thursday.
Once we get beyond Thursday, we enjoy a dry stretch of weather through the weekend. Temperatures will be well below average for Friday but warming to near 40 Saturday and evening warmer for the second half of the weekend. Looks like next week, we’ll continue with temperatures in the 40s.
SPRING AHEAD AN HOUR
This weekend we will get to spring ahead an hour as we return to Daylight Saving Time. Saturday night before you go to bed be sure to adjust your clocks ahead one hour. It is also a good time to check smoke alarms and CO Detectors.
