Update: Icy Rain Down but not Out
A bit more ice possible; temperatures hover near freezing
Winter Weather Advisory in effect until 10 p.m. tonight
3:30pm UPDATE COMMUTECAST: Depending on your temperature, freezing rain or plain rain showers will move through the region in the next hour. These showers will be most concentrated in the northern suburbs. After this batch of showers moves through, the lighter drizzle will resume with just a slight chance of some more showers through 7pm. As darkness approaches, some surfaces that are now just wet may freeze -- so be careful whether on foot or behind the wheel.
Update from 1:50pm: With precipitation pretty spotty at the moment and temperatures hovering around or even a little above freezing, the National Weather Service changed the Winter Storm Warning to a Winter Weather Advisory. An advisory is less serious than a warning. Still, this storm is not over. Drizzle and freezing drizzle will continue and one more batch of light rain and/or freezing rain will likely pass through the region between 4 and 7pm.
Temperatures should basically hold steady or perhaps rise a degree or so through 4pm. Then as it gets darker and the next batch of rain moves in, they could fall back down a degree or two. With the sun setting, freezing rain may resume sticking on untreated paved surfaces this evening (especially bridges, ramps and overpasses), so caution is advised. A hard freeze is not expected overnight and, after some possible fog, temperatures should rise through the 30s tomorrow morning. Tomorrow afternoon, high temperatures will likely reach the low 40s.
