Weather Alert Day: Tracking freezing rain and sleet by Tuesday afternoon

*A Weather Alert Day is in effect from Tuesday through Wednesday night*

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy, showers possible south of Highway 54. Lows in the mid-30s.

TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy with showers by afternoon, changing over to mainly sleet as temperatures dip below freezing. Sleet eventually changes to snow briefly on Tuesday night. Highs near 35, but dropping during the day.

EXTENDED: Precipitation will likely come in waves, with a brief break in precipitation late Tuesday night into early Wednesday. By mid-morning on Wednesday, snow starts back up and lasts into the evening, wrapping up before dawn on Thursday. Accumulation is likely, with amounts generally within the 2-4" range, with isolated higher amounts possible south of I-70. The biggest impact will be on the Tuesday evening commute with possible icy conditions, and for the Wednesday evening commute with steady snowfall and slick roads. The rest of the week is quiet and fairly cloudy, and temperatures struggle to get to 40 degrees until the weekend. After Wednesday, our next chance of precipitation doesn't arrive until Sunday night into Monday.
