Sunshine Sunday then Ice on Monday

Sunny skies on Sunday and temperatures above freezing will melt snow on the ground, which will refreeze overnight creating icy roads on Monday along with freezing rain.

Posted: Nov 16, 2019 11:49 PM

We lucked out with a gorgeous weekend. Sunshine Saturday and Sunday with highs in the upper 20s Saturday to upper 30s Sunday.

However, a decent amount of snow will melt Sunday with temperatures rising above freezing, which is 32 degrees. This means we will have wet roads, which will freeze overnight into black ice as temperatures drop into the lower 20s.

Because of this ice, road conditions will be very slippery for your Monday morning commute. Drive slow, the ice may be hard to see. Plan on needing some extra time driving to work. These icy roads could maintain themselves as cloud cover increases, not allowing sunshine to melt the ice. Although temperatures will rise into the mid to upper 30s, which could be enough to melt some of the ice during the day.

Late Monday, we could see another coating of ice from freezing rain and sleet. It will continue overnight into early Tuesday morning as lows stay in the lower 30s. By Tuesday morning, the ice will accumulate creating very slippery roads for your morning commute. Some areas could see up to 0.10" of ice accumulation.
