Welcome: Good morning. Today will be a briefing-type post. This storm took me by surprise. I thought it would be all rain but the models have changed. So now we may face another winter-like threat, ice…
Alert: A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 11:00 PM tonight through Noon tomorrow.
Timing: We may all start as rain late tonight but as time progresses it will cool the lower atmosphere. So at the surface there will be cool temperatures with warm temperatures above which means freezing rain. It should all turn to plain rain by the late morning or early afternoon.
Snow: Not expected.
Sleet: Isolated sleet is possible with little to no accumulation expected.
Freezing Rain: This prediction is what I think right now. Freezing rain is very challenging to predict so take it with a grain of salt. Generally one tenth to one third of an inch of ice is expected.
Thunder: Hey it is that time of the year when summer mixes with winter so, I put this in too. There may be some thunder-ice in the night but right now I doubt it.
Peak Wind: 15 to 20 mph, with gusts to 35 mph, coming from the East Southeast.
Blowing/Drifting Snow: Not expected.
Snow Day Calculator: 30% chance of a day off tomorrow.
Hazards Summary: It will be dangerous to travel during the ice. Sidewalks, driveways, and roads will all be very slippery. Scattered power outages are expected, as well as, scattered tree damage. Also very isolated lightning is possible.
Anything Else: I hope you all stay safe. Please comment and like, thank you. Have an amazing day. I hope all goes your way. So let today be your very best day. Cheers everyone!
