A winter weather advisory through early this afternoon for the possibility of light freezing rain or drizzle causing a few icy spots.
From now through lunch, light wintry precipitation in the form of mostly a freezing drizzle or light freezing rain is expected to move in from the west.
While not a widespread issue, this could lead to some icy spots on a few bridges and overpasses...so remain very vigilant to changing road conditions.
After lunch, temperature is expected to be sufficiently above freezing and therefore any icy concerns would be lessened.
For eastern Polk and greater Rutherford Counties, the winter weather advisory continues until midnight tonight as temperature may not rise above freezing there through the day.
Overnight tonight, temperature should remain above freezing for most spots…so any refreezing or black ice looks unlikely.
Sun and clouds are expected Tuesday with highs reaching the 50s – MUCH warmer than the previous week!
Some spotty rain becomes possible Wednesday and Thursday ahead of more widespread rain on Friday. Besides Wednesday’s chilly conditions, Thursday and Friday bring 60s for highs!
The weekend looks quieter and colder once again, and we’ll watch for any lingering light snow showers along the TN/NC state line Saturday.
