Here we go again with another rain/snow/slick road headache. This afternoon rain moves in to our counties and stays with us through the evening. The highest chance will be around dinner time tonight as most of our 29 counties will have rain falling. That rain begins to change over to snow showers in our northwestern counties but there won't be much moisture left on the back side of the cold front in this system. What could be a bigger concern is the fact that temperatures will drop very quickly behind this front during the overnight hours with roads still wet from the day's rain. This could create a flash freeze or slick spot situation if the air cools fast enough and temperatures drop low enough. Winds picking up around the front and temps in the low 50s this afternoon (warm!) will be the detracting factors toward slick roads but with such a quick temperature drop tonight you have to really pay attention.
We mentioned light snow for tonight as that cold air filters in and it does appear some accumulations may take place. If you're along and north of I-64 you may see a half inch to just under an inch depending on how far north you are. Those around and south of the parkways should see just a dusting or so. This in itself has the potential to cause problems since it may collect on roads tonight and keep them wet in time for the bulk of the temperature crash. We shall see. More on this potential and what the week ahead holds (more snow?) in the video below!
