We’re now within 60 hours of potential winter weather coming our way early Thursday morning. As it looks now, we could be in for some freezing rain early Thursday morning until about 8am or so when we would see a flip to rain from southern areas to northern areas.
If temperatures remain cold enough, early Thursday morning could be fairly slick with delays very possible for our area and even closures in areas north and west that may take longer to switch over. We’ll continue to monitor this one as it gets within 48 hours tomorrow morning and we have a better idea of where that ice/rain line will be. While it’s even possible to start with a bit of snow before changing to ice and then rain, it’s still possible for this to end up being an all-rain event.

High resolution models trying to grasp the degree of cold air damming in the region Thursday morning, and…if they hold steady in the days ahead…that's a lot of freezing rain (pink) from I-95 and northwest on Thursday morning! Would make for an dangerously icy morning commute. pic.twitter.com/0JJconQpOI
