As Saturday was a partly sunny day with highs in the mid-40s, we are watching for dangerous conditions overnight and into Sunday morning.

As a newly-developing cold front moves through the area, it will drop some precipitation, but with tonight's low temperature hovering around the magic freezing point number of 32 degrees, exactly what kind of precipitation this will be is hard to determine. It is most probable that this will be a winter mix of rain, ice, and snow starting soon after midnight and lasting until around 8 am. It will predominantly be a rain event early on, but will transition to ice and snow as temperatures cool in the early morning hours of Sunday.

Rainfall on roads will freeze to ice and create for slippery, and dangerous, driving conditions through midday Sunday. Please be cautious when driving early Sunday. Snow accumulations, which would occur if temperatures tonight are slightly colder than anticipated, will be less than half an inch.
