Icy, frosty & freezing

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for possible freezing rain in parts of south central and southeastern Oklahoma on Tuesday, Feb. 6.

[Wed] SNE is looking at a potential winter storm for Wed. In the Lehigh Valley, amounts will take a slight hit, likely coming in at 1-3 inches, but again, be on the lookout for a glaze or more of ice due to freezing rain.

The intensity levels of the Thursday and Saturday systems are open to debate, according to Paul Collar, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's bureau in Sullivan. "A thump of snow is expected around 10-11a.m. before warm air mixes into the region". The focus then turns to another system expected to bring widespread moderate precipitaton to the region late in the weekend. Another inch of snow is possible in the Kansas City area before 11 p.m. Rain that could be locally heavy at times. Sleet accumulation up to 1 inch, ice accumulation of up to a tenth of an inch and a chance of showers are expected in the evening, NWS said. Chance of precipitation is 100%. The Dane County Council of Snowmobile Clubs and the Dane County Parks Division open the county snowmobile trails when there is at least six inches of snow on the ground. As that rain band lifts north, a mix of rain/sleet/snow and freezing rain will develop on its northern edge. "The precipitation may change back to snow before tapering off around midnight".

It will be a mostly cloudy morning, gradually turning to a sunny afternoon with a high temperature of about 36 degrees, according to the NWS.

Russian pilot killed after plane shot down by Syrian rebels
A Syrian militant in the area told The Associated Press that the Russian pilot was shot and killed when he resisted capture. The U.N. says more than 270,000 people have been displaced in Idlib because of the government onslaught since December 15.

"There is still some uncertainty how fast and how much sleet/freezing rain could occur".

Although we haven't had a storm like the early January nor'easter, which broke a snowfall record in the Hartford area, Lessor said the snowfall total is on target.

The "Expect at least this much" map has no snowfall across southern CT and the New York City area. That's about 4.8 inches more than normal by this date in the season. After 9 p.m., the radar will start to light up with rain across central and southern Kentucky.
