Drying up today, slick roads still likely today

Weather

DISCUSSION: Wet roadways have led to icy spots developing through the overnight hours as temperatures dropped below freezing. Though most of us won’t see much additional snow through the rest of our Tuesday, slick travel is still possible. We’ll have to watch out and drive slower especially on the untreated side roads across the area.

Tuesday planner.

Any snow showers across the area should wrap up by midday, though cold air will hang around for the remainder of the day. Highs will be stuck in the 30s, and this won’t help us melt much of the ice or snow on the ground.

We thankfully are looking much more quiet for the middle to end of the week. Highs on Wednesday should return to the low 40s. A weak disturbance could bring a few more snow showers to the mountains late Wednesday, though most of us will stay dry.

A bit of snow for the mountains Wednesday evening.

More dry time is expected on Thursday and Friday. A few showers may be possible on Friday as another weak system passes by. Nothing major is expected from this and most will actually remain dry once again.

Temperatures will be closer to average in the mid 40s towards the end of the week. We look to stay dry through the work week and into the weekend where highs are back in the 50s by Sunday. Rain returns to kick off the work week.

Much of November featured temperatures that are below average, which has allowed us to feel almost like winter at times. For the most part though, our daytime and overnight temperatures have stayed above the freezing mark of 32 degrees and most of our precipitation has fallen as rain. Changes are in store once over the next few weeks as snow becomes a more regular occurrence. To get a general idea of amounts, our average snowfall for the month of December is 12.9 inches (We normally pick up just between 2 to 3 inches in November).
