Winter Storm May Impact School AGAIN

A WINTER STORM WATCH has been issued for most of Region 8 for Wednesday. Here are my thoughts as of Monday at 8:00 am:
  • Plain Rain FIRST on Tuesday, with highs near 60.
  • Changeover to SLEET Tuesday night into Wednesday. (1-2” of sleet)
  • Changeover to SNOW on Wednesday at some point. (1-3” of snow on top of the sleet)
  • This can change and not all data is in agreement on TIMING.
  • There’s about a 12-15 hour variance on the timing right now, but the end result is nearly the same.
  • I do not expect many power problems as we should not see much freezing rain... just briefly in transition.
  • I expect schools to close. Depending on timing, either leaving early on Wednesday or not going at all. I doubt there will be school on Thursday and Friday as it lingers in the cold air.
This can change and we will update everyone as new data arrives.

Have a good Monday,

With all this in mind, what do you expect the conditions of the main roadways to be for travel on Thursday morning upon clearing?
