NWS: Hazardous Travel Tuesday

 

 

Tonight’s weather story from the National Weather Service:

Hazardous Travel Tuesday

(March 2, 2015) – Much of the upcoming night will be quiet with clouds slowly moving in. Lows will drop into the mid teens to lower 20s by late evening and then are expected to steady out. Precipitation will begin to move into the area from south to north towards morning, starting as a brief mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain before going to a period of freezing rain. Ice accumulations are expected with around a tenth of an inch on average. This will cause extremely hazardous driving and walking conditions on untreated surfaces. As a result, a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for the entire area. Surface temperatures are expected to climb above freezing across most of the area with in a few hours of the onset of freezing rain. However, the potential exists for the warm air to arrive slower, which would increase ice accumulations. Those planning travel on Tuesday should monitor the latest conditions.
