    Storm Team4 Chief Meteorologist Doug Kammerer has the forecast for Jan. 27, 2016. (Published Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2016)

    Expect an icy morning and a slushy afternoon Thursday, as another refreeze is coming.

    There was no refreeze last night and the temperature climbed back into the 40s Wednesday, helping continue the big melt, but the temperature began to tumble after sunset.

    Expect large patches of ice and black ice Thursday morning as lows will be in the teens.

    After a hard freeze, driving conditions will be dangerous. Drivers should increase their following distance and avoid braking or hitting the gas hard. And be patient.

    But expect slushy conditions again from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. before another likely refreeze.

    Some days with highs in the 60s are in next week’s forecast, along with rain, so be prepared for possible flooding next Wednesday.
