Ice Expected Tonight
Tonight, another area of low pressure will slide to our south with increasing chances for precipitation. This time around, we will be looking at the chance for some freezing rain across the region. The highest elevations are expected to see the greatest chance for any ice accumulation. Temperatures will be hanging around the freezing mark and due to a warm surge of air aloft any precipitation that falls early tonight will be in the form of rain/freezing rain. We are expecting a trace to one hundredth inches of ice, this will create overnight plans to be a bit treacherous when out on the roadways.
Rain/freezing rain is expected to start late tonight, around 9 P.M towards the northern tier and make its way into the southern tier by 11 P.M. By late tonight, the cold air will fully take over and transition any freezing rain/rain to scattered snow showers across the region which will linger into the morning hours on Sunday. No snow accumulation is expected.
