Special Information:

We’re off to a cold start to the day! Temperatures have dipped down into the single digits in several locations under mainly clear skies. We’ll see increasing clouds through the day, leaving us with mostly cloudy skies this afternoon and highs in the low to mid 30s.

As we head into the evening, it’s possible we could see some freezing drizzle and sleet develop. The best chances will likely stay north of I-70. It’s possible the roads could receive a quick glaze of ice. Temperatures will be rising after midnight, allowing any precipitation to change to rain. Rain showers will be likely Monday morning followed by mostly cloudy skies and milder temperatures in the 40s and 50s. Tuesday will be even milder with highs in the low 60s and the possibility of scattered showers. A cold front will help to kick off more showers Wednesday along with falling temperatures through the day.
Inconvenient Weather: Freezing rain, sleet and rain will be possible starting this evening.
Planning Your Day:  After a cold but sunny start, we’ll see skies becoming mostly cloudy with highs in the low to mid 30s. Freezing rain and sleet will be possible this evening with rain showers likely late tonight.
