Wintry, Slick Start Ahead of Mid-Week Warm Up


A little bit of a nasty beginning to our Tuesday morning, as all types of precipitation are currently moving through the Stateline. A quick compact area of low pressure is tracking to the southwest of the Stateline, bringing with it a batch of light wintry precipitation. Everything from snow, to sleet, freezing rain, and rain. All of which could make for wet and slick road conditions through the rest of this morning. As the event continues to taper off from west to east, it still would be wise to take a few extra minutes this morning and take it slow on the roads. Precipitation is expected to continue through the next hour or two before tapering off by the afternoon.

Once this event comes to an end, some spotty drizzle is possible through the afternoon, but skies will remain cloudy. Highs again will struggle to get out of the 30s later. When you take in account the light winds, cloudy skies, drizzly conditions, it isn’t going to feel that pleasant outside. It’s definitely an improvement from what we experienced last week. Highs today through Thursday will be 20-26° higher than last week’s highs. It’s about time fall made a return. Tonight will remain quiet. Skies will stay pretty cloudy overnight tonight ahead of some patchy fog that could develop Wednesday morning as lows drop into the lower 30s.

Be aware that any roads that may be wet this afternoon could freeze by early Wednesday morning, leading to a black ice potential. However, Wednesday features cloudy skies early on, but a dry day overall. Sunshine will increase by the afternoon, helping our high temperatures climb closer to average. But wait, there’s more. Even warmer weather is expected we roll into Thursday, but rain makes a return. In fact, Thursday’s morning commute could feature periods of heavy rainfall and even a few rumbles of thunder.
