Black ice a concern for morning commute

Chance of freezing rain early Tuesday

A cold front is passing over the Tri-State allowing colder air to drain in from the northwest. A few flurries are possible overnight in the wake of this system. Temperatures will fall into the teens and lower 20s overnight and the concern for refreeze will be a factor during the morning commute. Any standing water from Sunday's rain will freeze over and could cause patches of black ice on Tri-State roads.

Monday will be dry and mostly sunny but clouds increase late evening ahead of the next storm system that will first warm the air and produce a chance of early morning sleet and freezing rain Tuesday before widespread showers move in. The rain and melting may cause localize flooding in poor drainage areas and low lying areas prone to flooding. Rainfall totals will likely exceed an 1.25 inches by Tuesday night.
