Winter Weather Update With Meteorologist Mike Prangley
Tonight: Patchy freezing drizzle and fog with lows of 28. The main concerns will be patchy black ice, especially on secondary roads, bridges, and overpasses. Improving conditions after 4 a.m. as the wind picks up helping to dry the atmosphere out. A southwest wind will be at 5 to 12 mph by morning.
Wednesday: Turning blustery and cold with flurries. Temperatures hold steady in the upper 20s and lower 30s. A west wind will be at 15 to 25 mph and gusty.
I will be back with those all-important road temperatures. The good news is the wind will pick up late tonight helping to dry things out on the roadways and helping to clear the fog out that will continue to freeze on cold surfaces like bridges and overpasses. This will be slow process and things may not improve until after 4 a.m. Be very careful when traveling as our winter weather advisory continues until midnight. Conditions will continue to be ripe for black ice.
