Light Freezing Rain Possible For Some

Good afternoon, everyone. As precipitation moves into the region late tonight and early Friday, temps will be cold enough for a touch of freezing rain to show up. This kicks off a super-active setup that takes us through the weekend into early next week. It’s one that will deliver more winter weather threats.

The best chance for freezing rain early Friday is in the cold valleys across the east. This is something that models rarely pick up on, but we are actually seeing a few of them showing the potential…

All it takes is a little bit of ice to cause some big travel issues. That should switch over to plain old rain as temps come up later in the morning and into the afternoon.

A second system then works in here late Saturday with rain that can go over to a little bit of snow showing up as temps drop by Saturday evening. Here’s the NAM with both systems over the next few days…

The models continue to figure out the Sunday-Monday system and the GFS is slowly correcting toward the southeast with the track of the low. It still have quite a bit of work to do, though…

That will continue to come south and so will the Canadian…

Once again, all modes of precipitation are possible across the area from Sunday through early Tuesday.

I will have the latest on WKYT starting at 4pm and here on KWC this evening. Make it a good one and take care.

    I hope you get KWC straightened out soon. I can’t browse it using Google Chrome or my Android Device without getting popups or being told to update my Flash Player. Only IE works.
