A FIRST ALERT DAY IS IN EFFECT FOR ICE AND SLICK TRAVEL
INTO WEDNESDAY MORNING.
Thunder sleet and ice are all done for the area this morning, but freezing drizzle will remain an issue through sunrise. This means the ice covered roads we have now will stay that way a least until 6AM. Temps should warm into the upper 30s today allowing all snow and ice to melt before another round of rain/freezing rain/sleet moves through tonight. This will move in to the area after 6PM and the freezing rain will stay generally along and north of I-80 with a glazing possible north of highway 30. This will likely prompt another winter weather advisory. Thursday will start off with rain the QCA before changing over to freezing rain and then quickly changing over to snow has cold air filters in. After all is said and done the QC could see another quarter inch or rain, a tenth of inch or less of ice and some minor accumulations of snow. This will also need a winter weather advisory for the area due to tough travel conditions. This storm system finally exits the area Thursday night and will be followed with arctic air by Friday morning with wind chills near -20° which would prompt a wind chill advisory.
FIRST ALERT DAYS are issued to inform you of inconvenient, hazardous, or potentially dangerous weather in our viewing area--weather that could impact you and your family. Look for frequent updates on air, online, on our social media platforms and on the QC Weather App.
