...Showers and Thunderstorms Then a Wintry Mix This Morning...

Showers and thunderstorms with moderate to locally heavy
precipitation rates, will continue to move across the area
this morning. Some storms will produce small hail. The rain is
expected to turn quickly to a wintry mix of snow, sleet and
freezing rain through 930 AM. This will result in quickly
deteriorating travel conditions during this time and through the
morning commute. Expect reduced visibilities, slick roads,
bridges, and sidewalks due to the rapid accumulation of sleet,
snow and freezing rain. In addition, easterly winds will be
strong at times gusting to around 40 mph. Winter storm warnings
and advisories remain in effect for most of the area. If traveling
this morning, exercise caution and give yourself plenty of time
to reach your destination.
