Our only weather headline tonight is “ Watch Out For Icy Spots”. Skies have cleared after this morning’s fast moving system. A system that did not produce the kind of snow in the metro area we had forecast. The main reason for the meager snowfall is the fact the temperatures remained above freezing the entire time it was snowing. This meant that most of the snow was wet and melted upon contact.
Now back to the headline…with clear skies and some of the coldest air we will ever see here in the first half of December, we are concerned puddles and slush will freeze rapidly as temperatures fall into the teens and 20s. Be careful! There will be plenty of sunshine the next few days but highs will remain unseasonably cold and night-time lows will drop into the teens. On Saturday, another area of low pressure may approach the mid-Atlantic. Precipitation is expected to develop during the day Saturday but it is too early to know what form the precipitation will be.
