...Freezing rain will expand across the region through the evening
commute...

Rain and freezing rain, occasionally mixed with sleet, is
currently occurring across the southern Adirondacks, the Lake
George Saratoga region, the Capital Region, eastern Catskills and
Helderbergs. Temperatures are expected to fall another couple of
degrees through the evening commute, allowing areas of freezing
rain to become more widespread.

Untreated ground surfaces which are currently wet are expected to
become ice covered during the evening commute. Motorists and
pedestrians are strongly advised to use extra caution if driving
or walking through this evening.

Bridges and elevated road surfaces, highway on and off ramps,
less traveled secondary roads, and also parking lots, sidewalks
and driveways will be particularly susceptible to ice formation
through early this evening.

evening...

A mix of rain and sleet, with some pockets of freezing rain, are
currently occurring or will shortly develop across portions of
the mid Hudson Valley, Litchfield County, the Berkshires and
southern Green Mountains over the next couple of hours.
Temperatures are expected to fall a couple of degrees through

become ice covered during the evening commute. Motorists and
pedestrians are strongly advised to use extra caution if driving
