Hazardous road conditions may develop, especially on bridges and overpasses, which could impact commutes Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning, according to the weather service. Temperatures will drop across the region from the 30s into the 20s by late in the day. Ice accumulations of a quarter-inch or more will make travel or outdoor activity extremely unsafe, especially on untreated surfaces.

The National Weather Service in Flagstaff expects a combination of rain and snow with snow levels close to 6,500 feet.

Chatham-Kent, London, Strathroy and Middlesex County are also under a freezing rain warning. We will see patchy freezing drizzle this morning and more widespread heavier freezing rain this afternoon. Rain of course when surface temperatures are above freezing (likely tomorrow).

The daytime high was 43 degrees warmer than Friday's high temperature - a remarkable increase for a 72-hour period.

Snow moves in on Thursday as a blowing snow event moves into the region. We see a break from precipitation much of Wednesday before the next approaching area of low pressure arrives Thursday. Accumulations of snow should be below 2 inches, but strong winds from the north and very low wind chills will make things pretty uncomfortable.
