Scattered rain showers moved in during the overnight hours, and with temperatures nearing freezing, a few slick spots are possible. Temperatures are expected to climb quickly after sunrise, so the threat for slick spots will mainly be from now until 9 am. After that, temperatures begin their climb into the low to mid-40s for highs this afternoon with plenty of rain showers to accompany the warmth.
After 9 pm, the cold air will begin pouring back into the Tri-State. Temperatures will fall from around 43 by 9 pm, all the way to around 20 by 6 am. During that time, we'll see any remaining rain showers switch over to snow showers, and a "flash freeze" is possible.
A flash freeze is when you have water on the roads from rain or melting snow, that can freeze in less than one hour due to a dramatic drop in temperatures. This may create icy roads as the rain from today and light snow tonight will not have enough time to dry off of the roads before temperatures fall into the 20s.
Be extra careful as you drive overnight after the Super Bowl, or in the early morning as you are heading out for the morning rush. There may be enough ice to create delays/closings, so be sure to join us tomorrow morning at 4:30 am for the latest on Good Morning Tri-State.
Monday will be pretty chilly, with highs in the mid-20s and wind chills in the single digits and teens throughout the day. A few flurries are possible in the afternoon, but the best chance for snow showers and flurries will be in the early morning.
Our next storm system arrives late Wednesday into Thursday. Here's your first warning, we could see some rain and snow with it as well. We'll keep you posted on that throughout the week.
