Freezing drizzle is already falling across parts of the area with some snow showers up in the northern mountains. This is part of a strong cold air damming event that is now ongoing. Mixed precip will continue through the day with very slick roads expected to develop especially away from the immediate coast. Precip for most of the day will be light but this evening steadier precip will arrive and by tonight, some heavier bands could develop as low pressure develops offshore.
The mountains will see snow occasionally mixing with sleet today accumulating 4-8″. Temps will be in the 20’s.
The foothills will see a mix of snow/sleet/freezing rain with 2-4″ of snow and a glaze to a quarter inch of ice in the most sheltered valleys. Temps in the 20’s to low 30’s.
The coastal plain will see mainly freezing rain with a coating-2″ of snow possible and up to a tenth of an inch of ice. Temps 28-32.
The immediate coast will see freezing rain changing to plain rain with a glaze of ice possible. Temps 30-35.
Colder and drier weather looks to follow this system for a while.
