There is a chance for ICE ACCUMULATION next week!
As you can probably tell, the chances are VERY low right now due to a high amount of uncertainty. What we do know is that the temps will dive into the 30s and low 40s for highs next week, with lows in the 20s and 30s. Precipitation chances range from 40-70% from Monday through Thursday.
The biggest questions are: How cold will the temps be aloft compared to the surface? For freezing rain to accumulate ice, we need temps at the surface at or below 32 degrees. We could end up with temps around 33-38 degrees and have just rain or non-accumulating sleet.
This map represents your CHANCE of a glaze of ice accumulation or greater, which would be caused by freezing rain. At this time, we are keeping % chances lower than others as there is still a lot of uncertainty.
Also, there is a low chance for snow, but that is (also) very uncertain. If that were to occur, it'd have to happen when this system moves out on Thursday.
Lots of question marks, but I wanted to give you all a heads up about whats in store for next week. Stay tuned!
