For nearly the last two weeks we have seen absolutely frigid temperatures. Good news is that there is a nice warm up on the way, unfortunately it could lead to some dangerous road conditions to start the work week. Here is a breakdown of the event that will start Sunday evening.
Sunday will be a breezy one with winds from the south that will gust near 25 mph. The breeze will help increase our temperatures into the upper 20s.
Most of the daylight hours will be dry, with precipitation chances increasing as the evening progresses.
Mixed precipitation will be moving in as we head into the late evening and early overnight hours, with a chance for freezing rain. Roads will start to become slick, as the precipitation becomes more widespread.
The mix will eventually become all snow in the middle of the night. However, with the temperatures near the freezing mark, meaning the snow that accumulates will be heavy and wet.
By daybreak Monday, a mix will once again be possible with temperatures climbing above freezing. The chances for precipitation will be coming to an end by the time we get into the afternoon.
Snowfall totals will be very dependent on when the transitions happen, from mix, to all snow and back to a mix. If the period of all snow is cut short, then totals will be on the lower end. Regardless, with the chances for sleet & freezing rain mixing with snow, this situation will create hazardous driving conditions for Monday morning. Make sure to plan accordingly.
