Weather Service Cancels Storm Warning; Freezing Rain Till 9 P.M.
While the weather could still pose problems for those driving and walking, the slowly rising temperatures will change the precipitation to rain, forecast says.
The National Weather Service has canceled its winter storm alert for our area, but freezing rain is expected through early afternoon, according to the most recent forecast.
The freezing rain advisory is in effect until 9 p.m. The advisory means that, because the ground is frozen, roadways and sidewalks will still be coated and will cause slippery conditions, the forecast said.
As temperatures rise through the evening and night, however, the ice should melt and the rain should wash away what's on the ground.
The high tonight is expected to be 34, and temps will continue to climb to 48 on Monday. The warm conditions will continue through Tuesday, when the high is predicted to be 62 before dropping into the 30s that night. Expect the possibility of rain through Tuesday as well, with the potential for thunderstorms, the forecast said.
