Widespread Freezing Rain, Sleet & Some Snow……0.1″ Glaze at WLFI As of 2:20 p.m.January 13th, 2013 at 2:24 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
After heavy rainfall lastnight with flash flooding, we dried out this morning. Now, that new low is indeed working up cold front, spreading freezing rain, snow & sleet across the area.
Ice continues to accumulate on trees & powerlines in the area, but most roads are still largely wet. However, bridges & overpasses are beginning to ice over.
Some of you are all freezing rain right now, but as ribbon of warmer air thins, freezing rain will continues to transition to sleet & then sleet/snow across the area from west to east.
Up to 0.2″ ice is possible this afternoon with accumulations of sleet & snow of up to 1.5″ in places. Banding of precipitation will make for fairly wide variance in amounts.
With gusty winds up to 32 mph & 0.2″ ice, a few sporadic power outages cannot be ruled out.
