Snow, Sleet, Freezing Rain Headed Our Way

Goodbye moderate weather, a nasty mix will move into the area tonight.

The morning commute could be a slippery one based on the latest forecast from the National Weather Service, which is calling for a "light chance" of rain and snow before 1 a.m. Wednesday.

That chance of precipation will ratchet up to 80-90 percent overnight, with the rain changing to sleet and then snow by morning. Temperatures will fall to a low of 31 and there will a light northeast wind.

Total accumulation isn't supposed to be more than an inch, but the slippery mix could make for a tricky morning drive into work.

Any leftover precipitation tomorrow afternoon is expected to change back to rain as temperatures reach into the upper 30s.

The extended forecast calls for a mix of sun and clouds through Monday, with temperatures in the 30s, and no storms on the horizon.

Here's the forecast through the weekend:

  • Tonight A slight chance of rain and sleet before 1am, then rain, snow, and sleet likely between 1am and 4am, then snow, freezing rain, and sleet after 4am. Low around 30. Northwest wind around 5 mph becoming light and variable after midnight. Chance of precipitation is 90%. Little or no ice accumulation expected. Total nighttime snow and sleet accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
  • Wednesday Rain, snow, freezing rain, and sleet, becoming all rain after 10am. High near 38. East wind around 6 mph becoming calm in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 90%. Little or no ice accumulation expected. New snow and sleet accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
