Today will feature some up and down weather as cold air this morning slowly gives way to slightly milder air, at least along the coast. Freezing rain will continue this morning inland with up to a third of an inch of ice expected. While widespread power outages are not expected, some branches could come down over the foothills this afternoon. Cold air will rush into the area this afternoon with gusty NW winds and much colder air. Temps will fall from the 30’s and 40’s this morning back into the 20’s this evening. This sharp drop in temps will result in a flash freeze with any melted snow and ice refreezing on sidewalks and roads. Watch out for these slick spots all day today especially away from the coast. Some snow showers are possible this evening across the mountains with some light accumulations possible.
