Ice covered roads pave a messy start to our Monday morning, especially for our eastern counties. Just in Cumberland County, at least thirty accidents reported. Three salt trucks overturned in Grundy County.
Most of the icy roads have been east, note the pink on the radar (9:24 am update) — that’s where we still have ice. Areas west in the green? All in the form of light rain.
Temperatures have slowly but surely warmed to above freezing so now the precipitation is in the midst of transitioning to all rain…
Though I do not anticipate an all day rain event, I expect clouds to to remain stubborn today, which will keep temperatures steady, only warming a couple degrees from where they are now,, in the lower 40-degree range.
Here’s the timeline on the rain for the remainder of the day — widespread showers push east during the morning, lingering spotty rain finishes of the day…
Lingering moisture and light wind will combine to develop early morning fog with a spotty shower or two on Tuesday. Highs gradually warm up! Low 50s on Tuesday, low 60s on Wednesday and upper 60s by Thursday. Nice!
After we finally warm up and you shove the winter coat in the closet, you’ll need to pull it back out! Temperatures are in for a sharp cool down and plenty of rain will go along with it. I’ll have the latest timeline on the rain on News 4 at noon today.
Let’s make it a great week!
