Slick roads likely for morning commute

KEY POINTS

  • Light snow showers will move through early AM
  • Temperatures will fall into the teens
  • Any wet or snowy roads likely become slick this morning
  • Windy at times bringing wind chills below zero at times

Temperatures are spread out from the upper teens north to around 30 across the far southeast.

“Cold air will continue to be ushered in as this system shifts out of the area,” Zontini said. Some light snow will work in from the west early this morning. Mainly it will add to the possibility of slick spots for the commute.”

Any wet or snowy roads, bridges, overpasses can become slick or icy through the morning.

We are also windy through the first half of the day with gusts around 30 mph possible. Wind chill values through the morning will be at or below zero at times, especially north where temperatures are already colder.

Clouds will break gradually through the day. Temperatures won’t rebound much with most spots hanging in the upper teens to around 20.

Clouds will increase again toward Tuesday morning as temps drop to lows around 10.

“We could still see some slick spots Tuesday morning along with wind chills near zero,” Zontini said.

Wednesday: It will be mostly cloudy and closer to normal temperatures for this time of year with highs in the mid-30s. There is a chance for some scattered snow showers to arrive later in the day or into the evening as a cold front passes.

Thursday: A few icy spots in the morning are possible, depending on how much snow falls the night before from a passing cold front. It will be much colder behind the front, whit temperatures in the single digits to start in into the teens in the afternoon.

“The upside to the forecast is high pressure returns, bringing back the sun,” Vrydaghs said.

Friday: It will be mostly sunny, breezy and cold with a start in the single digits and highs reaching the mid-20s.
