Evening Weather Update

Well part of the area already seeing a bit of an icing, but I have good news. Temperatures will slowly warm up this tonight. A light wintry mix including sleet and a bit of freezing rain has already passed through the area. Light rain showers trailed the first round...depending on where you lived, it either froze if you were colder, or melted any ice from earlier if you were warmer. Temperatures are right at or above the freezing mark currently. As stated, we will slowly and steadily climb the thermometer overnight and top out tomorrow midday in the upper 30's.  You can see the rain on the windshield as I was driving back from my dinner break.  Light rain will continue off and on through Tuesday, but cold air will return in the evening and another round of wintry weather will be followed by light snow showers. With falling temps and the possibilities of a light dusting by Wednesday morning, take it easy on the roadways. Thursday we will see a decent shot of accumulating snow. While it is still pretty early to throw out numbers, it seems that we could easily see a few inches for part of the area by Friday morning. Winds also will pick up Friday so blowing and drifting snow will once again be a problem for the rural areas on Friday, as well as the bitter cold. We will see lows in the single digits entering the weekend...and of course with the wind, wind chills below zero. I will be back on tomorrow with hopefully forecasted snowfall totals for Thursday and any updates on Tuesday night. Have a good one!
