Icy Tuesday morning commute

Temperatures rise into the 50s later Tuesday afternoon


Roads are still extremely icy from the freezing rain and wintry mix that moved through the area  Monday. Temperatures will warm quickly this afternoon which will help the situation, but until that happens, use extreme caution on your morning commute.

Winter will loosen its grip over the next several days and allow the region to thaw out after 8 straight days with below freezing temperatures. Highs today will jump right into the 50s with a mix of clouds and sunshine.

Today: Sun and clouds with highs in the low-50s.

Tonight: Mostly clear with lows around 30.

Rain chances increase Thursday and Friday with highs pushing 60 degrees Friday afternoon. Another chunk of cold air takes us back down to reality for the weekend. This next round of cold does not look to be as brutal as the last round of cold.
