Tricky travel on Monday

Snow showers Sunday night change to freezing rain for your Monday morning commute with icy and slushy roads, then moderate rainfall for your evening commute.

Posted: Mar 1, 2020 7:33 PM

A warm front makes its way to Central New York Sunday night. Ahead of the front, cold air is still
present, with snow showers overnight. Overnight lows will be in the lower 20s around midnight.

As the warm front moves through early Monday morning, freezing rain begins. This is due to warmer air aloft,
but near or below freezing temperatures at the surface. We are expecting to get about a glaze of ice on the
ground from this freezing rain. Plan on needing some extra time driving on these icy and slushy roads for
your morning commute.

The freezing rain ends before Monday afternoon. Any ice on the ground will melt quickly before your lunch
time plans around noon. This is because much warmer air will be moving into Central New York behind this
warm front. This region behind the warm front and ahead of the cold front is called the warm sector. In the
warm sector, highs are expected to reach the lower 50s! However, scattered light rain showers will still be
present. There will also be lots of wet roads as the snow begins to melt and drain onto the streets.

The rain becomes heavier Monday evening as a cold front approaches Central New York. Plan on needing some
extra time driving for your evening commute. There could be areas of low visibility and pooling on the
roadways, especially with a good amount of melting snow.

The rain becomes lighter heading into Monday night, eventually ending before Tuesday morning. Overnight lows
only bottom out in the lower 30s. Rainfall totals look to be around 0.50"-0.75" for the North Country, 0.25"
for the Mohawk Valley, and 0.10" for the Southern Valleys. However, with all the melting snow there could be
even more water on the ground.
