A WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM EST THIS EVENING.

A STORM MOVING IN FROM THE SOUTHWEST WILL SPREAD PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE REGION. SNOW AND SLEET HAS CHANGED OVER TO FREEZING RAIN ACROSS MOST OF THE AREA…AND OCCASIONAL FREEZING RAIN WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE DAY AND INTO THE EVENING. WARMER AIR WILL GRADUALLY MOVE ACROSS THE REGION LATE TODAY…ALLOWING FREEZING RAIN TO CHANGE TO RAIN AT SOME HIGHER ELEVATIONS AS WELL AS SOME AREAS EAST OF THE INTERSTATE 95 CORRIDOR.

AS THE STORM MOVES OFFSHORE TONIGHT…MOST PRECIPITATION WILL END. HOWEVER…EXPECT LINGERING FREEZING DRIZZLE OR DRIZZLE AND FOG THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT.

SIGNIFICANT ICING…AROUND A QUARTER OF AN INCH…IS EXPECTED FROM THIS STORM. THIS WILL LIKELY CAUSE SUBSTANTIAL TRAVEL PROBLEMS AND SOME POWER OUTAGES.

STAY TUNED TO THE LATEST FORECASTS THROUGH THIS EVENT.

A WINTER STORM WARNING MEANS SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF ICE ARE EXPECTED OR OCCURRING. THIS WILL MAKE TRAVEL VERY HAZARDOUS OR IMPOSSIBLE.
