Wednesday Discussion: Evening Rain, Spotty Ice

Winter Weather Advisory in Effect for parts of the HV tonight:
Latest guidance is not very impressed with the threat for ice tonight across the region. It appears that the main concern is for the colder valleys of the Catskills. Rain showers will move in between 4pm and 8pm, from west to east. Temps at that time will be mainly 35° to 40°, even some places warmer than that. Only the coldest valleys of the Catskills (especially places with deeper snow pack) will run the risk of freezing rain at the onset. If you live in those traditionally colder locations, most of you know who you are. If not, if you have several inches of snow pack, watch the thermometer near sunset, and if it’s in the low 30s, you will want to watch out for some icy spots on untreated surfaces.


* WHAT…A mix of rain and freezing rain expected. Total ice
accumulations of a glaze up to one tenth of an inch expected.

* WHERE…Greene, Columbia, Sullivan, Delaware, Western Ulster.

* WHEN…From 5 PM this afternoon to 7 AM EST Thursday.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS…The hazardous conditions could impact the Wednesday evening and Thursday morning commutes. Plan on icy roads and sidewalks. Drive carefully and allow extra time to reach your destination.

Slick Spots of Black Ice Possible

(From the National Weather Service:)

Icy traveling conditions this Wednesday morning… ice melt from yesterday and with temperatures below freezing this morning has resulted in icy spots on untreated surfaces. Motorists and pedestrians are urged to watch for untreated surfaces as they may be icy.
