Cooler and Unsettled Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature cooler temps and unsettled weather as a weak storm moves in from the southwest. Cold air dammed up against the mountains has been supporting light mixed precip across much of the area west of I-95 this morning. As the sun comes up and winds shift a bit more to the south, expect the mix/rain line to advance inland, though of course slower than most guidance expects. The interior foothills and mountains seem likely to cling to near or below freezing temps for much of the day, leading to some modest sleet/ice accumulation. For the most part this looks like just a slick travel threat though, especially on untreated roads. For the rest of us, any morning sleet/ice will change over to a cold rain as temps rise into the mid/upper 30s. Rain will let up briefly this evening before resuming overnight and changing back to snow in the mountains as low pressure redevelops offshore. Accumulations are expected to be modest (1-3″ mostly) and confined to the higher terrain.
