We have been stuck in the cloud cover for much of the day with some rain on the way. Temperatures have made it into the 30s with some spots above freezing however, road temperatures are what we are going to have to monitor heading into the evening.
A FREEZING RAIN ADVISORY is in effect for counties that DO NOT touch I-95 to the west. StormTeam4 is in WEATHER ALERT. This advisory begins at 6pm and continues through 1am. Temperatures will actually rise overnight so we do believe everybody will begin to see a change to plain rain overnight.
All of rain should be gone well before the morning commute however, there could still be a few slicks spots and some foggy spots out there early tomorrow.
Temperatures will rise into the upper 40s to lower 50s on Wednesday – it really depends on how much sunshine we can squeeze out during the day. More rain will move in from the southwest to the northeast late tomorrow afternoon through tomorrow early evening.
This will all be plain rain since our temperatures are on the higher side. Temperatures top out in the 60s on Thursday with veiled sunshine and dry conditions. There could be some highly isolated spotty showers on Friday but most of the day will just be spent in cloud cover with temperatures dropping throughout the entire day.
The weekend could prove to be interesting as waves of low pressure will move along a stalled frontal system to the south. Temperatures will be in the 30s/20s on Saturday and we could have a wintry mix on our hands for much of the day on Saturday.
