The majority of the Susquehanna Valley will see the threat of freezing rain come to an end this afternoon as temperatures rise into the lower to mid 30s. However, pockets of freezing rain may continue through sunset as cold, dense, sub-freezing air remains at the surface at the bottom of some river valleys and mountain valleys. Therefore, an additional glaze of ice is possible in areas, mainly along and just north of I-81 where we have seen the most freezing rain today. Rain and freezing rain tapers to showers this evening and should be east of the region by 8 to 9 pm. Temperatures this evening after the rain tapers will hover in the lower to mid 30s. This will be the least impactful time to travel this evening if needed as much of the Valley’s roadways will just be wet. A strong cold front moves through the region around midnight. Arctic air moves into the region and temperatures plummet to the lower 20s by dawn Monday. Winds may gust between 25 and 30 miles per hour at times. Wind chills drop to the teens for Monday morning. It is likely that some moisture on roadways, bridges, overpasses refreezes Sunday night into Monday morning. Sunday’s rain also melted some of our snowpacking making slush and puddles. These could turn to sheets of ice by dawn Monday. Extra caution should be used for Monday morning’s commute. The coldest air of the season will impact us Monday and Tuesday. We are keeping Monday and Tuesday Impact Days because wind chills will likely hover in the single digits/teens all day long. Wind chills will drop to near 0 degrees Monday night into Tuesday morning.Tuesday will be the coldest day of the week with highs in the 20s. Temperatures start to moderate toward the end of the week.
