Wednesday – With a morning mix of sun and clouds, it’s probably our ‘easiest’ AM commute of the week. Unfortunately, it’s not without issue. Those chilly overnight temps in the teens and low 20s lead wet pavement and puddles turning back to ice. The temp only inches into the mid and upper 20s by the afternoon with a light south wind. Clouds slowly increase, with light wintry precip kicking off between 4 and 8 PM.
Wednesday Evening & Night – Another boundary rolls up from the south, bringing snow, sleet and freezing rain. We’re more likely to find sleet and snow with light to no accumulation north, and more likely to find freezing rain south. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for almost our entire region, excluding the northernmost tier of Vermont and New Hampshire counties. Up to 0.25″ of icy glaze is possible on paved surfaces by early Thursday. Steady temp in the 20s.
Thursday – There’s only a slight chance for additional daytime showers as we take at a stab at 40°, but clouds linger and icy surfaces remain a concern.
Thursday Night – Rain takes over; mainly plain rain with overnight lows largely above freezing, but icy buildup might again be a factor for those in colder mountain hollows east of the Green Mountains and through the White Mountains.
Friday – Showers wrap up in the morning, but a flash freeze follows as the temp falls from the mid 40s to near zero by Friday night. Light mountain snow takes us into a quieter, colder and sunnier weekend.
Have a great day! Drive safe tonight and tomorrow morning.
