Ice, Ice, Baby...

Today’s commute is going to be difficult.  Ice is coating absolutely everything, causing treacherous roads, and slick sidewalks. 

A touch of snow, freezing rain and even freezing fog are left behind this morning.  That will clear and by the late morning the precipitation will finally be gone.  However, the coating of ice will take a while for the road crews to work on.  Even getting out of the driveway will be difficult.  Even at just a crawl, I slid halfway down mine when I tried to break.  Similar story when I reached the end of the road and had to stop for the stop sign.  Stopping will be VERY DIFFICULT today.  If there is ever a time to heed the warning to slow down, or even to stay at home if possible, today is the day.  Allow for almost double the time to commute and give plenty of following distance. 

If you can, join us for ABC 6 News Good Morning.  I’ll have live traffic cameras from across the region.  Also I’m monitoring road conditions real time.  Follow the #abc6roads on Facebook and Twitter for information while away from your TV.  If you would like to monitor road conditions for yourself, or for locations outside of our local area, check out the “road conditions” link under the weather tab.

Temps near 32 for much of today will allow us the chance to soften some of the ice up.  Salts and chemicals will begin to work their magic as time goes on, so I suspect the afternoon commute will be a bit better.  With highs in the middle 30s through Friday we’ll have a great chance to get rid of all this ice, but refreezing will be possible through the overnight hours, making the morning’s slick.

The next chance of precipitation is rain on Friday through Sunday.  Then another chance for a wintry mix again on Monday.

Today: Wintry mix early. Mostly cloudy. Highs in the lower 30s. Wind: N turning W 5-10 mph.

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Lows in the lower 20s. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny. Highs in the lower 30s.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy. Drizzle possible towards evening. Highs in the middle 30s.

Friday: Mostly cloudy. Slight chance for rain showers. Highs near 40°.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy. Chance for rain showers. Highs near 40°.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy. Chance for rain showers. Highs near 40°.

Monday: Mostly cloudy. Chance for rain and snow showers. Highs in the middle 30s.
