Sunday Night: Freezing rain and ice beginning tonight

Weather

Freezing rain will begin late tonight, leading to ice accumulations tomorrow.

Tonight: It will be another freezing cold night as temperatures drop into the upper 20s. We’ll also see freezing rain shortly after midnight. Coverage will increase as we get closer to sunrise, so we could see a few areas of black ice. Winds will be northerly at 5-10 mph. Low near 28.

Tomorrow: Freezing rain will continue through about noon, but the cold will linger. Highs will barely make it into the 30s, and wind chills will stay in the teens and 20s. Once the freezing rain ends, skies will be cloudy. Winds will be northerly at 5-10 mph. High near 31.

Extended: Skies will begin to clear as high pressure moves into the region. This clearing will lead to extremely cold temperatures. We are under a freeze watch and wind chill advisory tomorrow night. Temperatures will drop into the teens, and wind chills will likely drop into the single digits. Highs on Tuesday will reach the mid to upper 30s, and we’ll see a good bit of sunshine. Still, this probably won’t be enough to melt the ice that accumulates. If any ice does melt, it will refreeze overnight. Wednesday will be much warmer with highs in the 50s, and it’s when the ice will likely melt. Except storms on Wednesday and Wednesday night. Scattered showers are possible on Thursday. Highs will be back in the 50s on Friday, and by Saturday and Sunday, temperatures will return to the 60s.
