...LIGHT RAIN AND SNOW POSSIBLE MONDAY MORNING...
...PATCHES OF BLACK ICE POSSIBLE MONDAY MORNING...

COLD AIR RUSHING IN ON THE HEELS OF A DEPARTING COLD FRONT WILL
ALLOW FOR A BRIEF PERIOD OF LIGHT RAIN AND SNOW MONDAY MORNING. NO
ACCUMULATIONS ARE EXPECTED EXCEPT AT THE HIGHEST ELEVATIONS WHERE
THE RAIN ACTUALLY CHANGES TO ALL LIGHT SNOW FOR A BRIEF PERIOD. IN
THESE AREAS...UP TO A HALF AN INCH OF SNOW ACCUMULATION IS
POSSIBLE AT THE AFOREMENTIONED HIGHER ELEVATIONS.

OF MORE CONCERN WILL BE THE RAPIDLY DECREASING TEMPERATURES
IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE PRECIPITATION WHICH MAY LEAD TO PATCHES
OF BLACK ICE DEVELOPMENT. THIS AGAIN WILL BE ESPECIALLY TRUE AT
THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS. MOTORISTS SHOULD BE ALERT MONDAY MORNING
FOR PATCHY SLICK SPOTS...ESPECIALLY ON ELEVATED SURFACES SUCH AS
BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES.
