Icy roads will be a problem for many this morning. A number of well traveled roads are relatively clear, but there are still scattered icy patches on them. Side roads and county roads will be more hazardous. If you’re working a normal schedule today, plan on the morning commute taking longer. You will likely have to drive slower than normal.
Temperatures are in the upper teens this morning, and we’ll stay below freezing through around 10 a.m. Skies will be sunny which means roads should begin to thaw even before then. Most icy spots will dry up by this afternoon, although ice in shady areas will be slower to melt. Highs will top out in the lower 40s this afternoon with north winds at 5-10 mph. Skies stay mainly clear tonight. Evening temperatures fall through the 30s and lows bottom out around 25 for Saturday morning.
Expect mostly sunny skies Saturday with highs back into the mid/upper 50s. Clouds will start to increase as we head into Sunday. Morning readings should be around 30. Skies will become mostly cloudy Sunday afternoon, and there’s a slight chance for rain late in the day. Our weather remains somewhat unsettled next week. There will be several opportunities for rain, but the warm-up continues. Highs could be near 70 towards the end of next week.
