...SPOTTY LIGHT ICING POSSIBLE EARLY THIS MORNING...

At 145 AM, Doppler Radar showed a few light rain showers over
southern Connecticut, heading to the northeast.

These spotty light showers will move across the southern half of
Hartford, Tolland, and Windham Counties through 330 AM, passing
mainly south of Hartford and Willimantic, and possibly into
adjacent western Rhode Island.

Since temperatures are still below freezing in some locations, it
is possible for light icing to occur as these showers pass
through.

Drivers should be alert that roads that look wet may actually be
coated with a thin layer of ice. Be especially careful on bridges
and overpasses.

HAVEN...NORTHERN MIDDLESEX AND NORTHERN NEW LONDON COUNTIES...

At 140 AM EST, an area of light rain was expanding into interior
southern Connecticut. Temperatures in some sheltered locations were
still below freezing, so spotty freezing rain is likely.

Locations that could impacted include...Waterbury, Meriden,
Middletown, Wallingford, Wolcott, Colchester, East Hampton,
Hartford, Hamden, Cheshire, Cromwell, Griswold, Portland, Prospect
and Lebanon.

Any freezing rain may quickly coat roadways with a thin layer of ice
that may be undetectable. Please use extreme caution, especially on
bridges, overpasses and around curves. Allow plenty of stopping
distance and avoid braking suddenly.

...Patchy Freezing Rain over the Next Few Hours...

Temperatures are currently in the upper 20s to mid 30s across
southern Litchfield County. As light rain lifts northward towards
the area, this precipitation may freeze on contact with some
surfaces, resulting in a light coating of ice.

Temperatures will continue to rise through the overnight, ending
the threat for freezing rain by 5 AM. Until then, travelers
should take caution, as some localized slippery conditions will
be possible, especially on untreated surfaces.

Fog will continue to overspread the area tonight as low-level
moisture builds ahead of a cold front. Visibility will drop to 1
to 3 miles in most of the areas, though patchy dense fog with
visibility decreasing to 1/4 mile is possible during the Monday
morning commute. Conditions will quickly improve as dry air begins
to filter into the area behind the cold front and northwesterly
wind gusts steadily increase through the mid to late morning.

...Colder and Wetter Monday Night into Tuesday with Light Wintry
Precipitation Possible...

A strong cold front and an approaching upper level storm system
will bring a period of colder and wetter conditions for all of
West Central Texas. Rain should spread in from the west Monday
evening and continue through around noon Tuesday, with rain totals
around one half inch for many locations.

After warm conditions on Monday, temperatures will fall into the
30s Monday night and then remain in the low to mid 40s on Tuesday.

There may be a brief period of time around sunrise Tuesday where
temperatures fall fast enough to allow light wintry precipitation
to develop. This would be most likely north of a line from
Sterling City to Ballinger to Brownwood, and would be a mixture of
light rain, light snow, and sleet. At this time, it looks like
most areas will see little or no accumulation and little impact.
However, a few areas may see a brief period of moderate snowfall.
This could be heavy enough to produce a dusting of accumulation
that may create icy spots on roadways. Anyone who may need to be
outside on Tuesday morning is encouraged to stay up to date with
the most current forecast as we get closer to the event.

A light wintry mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain is expected
to develop across the northern Adirondack Mountains of New York
and spread into parts of northern, central, and eastern Vermont
by early Monday morning. A light ice accumulation is anticipated,
which will cause areas of slippery travel during the Monday
morning commute, especially on untreated roads and sidewalks. The
threat for mixed precipitation and slick travel will end by early
Monday afternoon, as temperatures warm into the upper 30s to lower
40s.

...ICY ROADS POSSIBLE LATE TONIGHT AND MONDAY MORNING ACROSS
SCHOOLCRAFT AND LUCE COUNTIES...

Low level moisture in the form of drizzle will linger behind a
departing cold front beginning this afternoon. Temperatures will
begin to drop after this front moves through, dropping below
freezing soon after sunset. Any drizzle that falls will have an
opportunity to freeze to road surfaces, creating as much as a
glaze of ice on roadways, elevated surfaces such as bridges, and
sidewalks. As temperatures continue to drop and deeper moisture
filters in across the region in the late Monday morning hours,
freezing drizzle will transition to snow.

Motorists should use caution when traveling this evening and
tomorrow morning. Allow for extra time to reach your intended
destination and drive at appropriate speeds for the conditions.
Icy spots on roadways can be difficult to spot so leave extra
spacing between yourself and any other vehicles.
