More Winter Weather Headed Our Way
Another round of winter weather is expected to hit our area Monday afternoon into Monday night, potentially creating some tricky driving conditions. Temperatures will rise quickly between Monday and Tuesday, bringing a little snow, ice and eventually rain to our area.
First the good news: the sub-zero temperatures and wind chills we've been dealing with all weekend are moving out. Also with Monday being President's Day, there will be fewer drivers on the roads, but those that do have to be out may face a challenging drive Monday night.
Accuweather is calling for about a little snow Monday afternoon, with a coating to an inch of accumulation. As temperatures rise Monday night, expect snow, sleet, freezing rain, and eventually all rain as we go all the way up to the low 50's on Thursday.
Bill Jacquemin at the CT Weather Center expects similar conditions, but with somewhat higher snow accumulation totals before the changeover to wintry mix and rain.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory and cautions that untreated roads could become especially slippery Monday night.
Everyone agrees that by Tuesday morning we'll have all rain.
So, the snow impact from this storm will be minimal, but the driving conditions through the transition period could be slippery and icy Monday night. Be careful out there!
