Some road improvement expected on Wednesday

Posted: Updated:

The snow has ended, but satellite data continues to reveal a large shield of clouds extending from southwest to northeast across our area. At last check, the temperature was down to 14 on Red Mountain with single digit wind chills. The roads remain extremely icy and will remain that way through late morning. I still expect some improvement on major roadways thanks to sunshine, but this will be a slow improvement because of subfreezing temperatures. The ice will remain a big issue tonight as lows tumble into the teens.

ABOVE FREEZING THURSDAY: Temperatures will finally rise above the freezing mark tomorrow. Highs will be reaching the 40s with lows in the 20s tomorrow night. You can expect milder conditions on Friday with highs in the low to mid 50s.

RAIN SATURDAY/SUNDAY: The upper air pattern will become more west to east oriented on Saturday with clouds and showers returning to the state. Highs on Saturday will be in the low 60s however Sunday will be a cold and rainy day. Temperatures look to start off in the 50s on Sunday and fall throughout the day.

MORE COLD AIR NEXT WEEK? The setup looks milder and wetter for the start of next week with showers possible on Monday and Tuesday. Long range data shows a potential heavy rainmaker by Wednesday followed by another shot of very cold air.
