...Wintry Precipitation Possible Friday Morning through Monday...

A cold front is progressing southward across the Panhandles this
morning which will help bring much colder temperatures ahead of an
incoming upper level low. As this upper low progresses eastward
towards the region, increasing moisture will arrive to the area
starting Friday morning and continuing through midday Monday.
Precipitation will initially fall in the form of freezing rain Friday
morning throughout the region, so please be careful during the
morning commute. After this initial period of freezing rain, the
western and southern Panhandles may rise above freezing Friday
afternoon changing the precipitation over to rain.

Temperatures are forecast to rise above freezing during the daytime
hours for most of the western and southern Panhandles this weekend,
which will help mitigate wintry precipitation accumulations that will
fall primarily as freezing rain. Ice accumulations late Friday into
early Saturday is forecast to be between five-hundredths to one-
tenth of an inch areawide, with another tenth to near a quarter inch
possible in the northern Panhandles late Saturday into early Sunday.
As the low ejects out of the region, the main winter precipitation
type Sunday night into Monday morning may fall as snow with up to an
inch or two possible. Stay tuned to the latest forecast as we
continue to assess the incoming winter storm.
