TIMING: From about 9 PM tonight through early Monday PM

AMOUNTS: Anywhere from zero to 2″ of sleet and snow are possible. Some locations could get locally higher amounts in the 3″ to 4″ range if a heavy band of snow can setup somewhere.

ROADS: In general, road surface temperatures will remain above freezing during this event and that will mitigate widespread travel issues we think.  Things could become slick if a heavy band of precipitation happens to setup over any one spot for a bit.  Also keep in mind bridges can become slick faster than regular road surfaces.  When it doubt, slow down! Some additional slippery spots could redevelop Monday night when air temperatures dip back below freezing.
