Travel advisory as SD&G hit with freezing drizzle, ice pellets

09 February 2019

There is a risk for a period of light freezing rain initially tonight with lows right around the freezing mark.

Freezing drizzle is expected to continue overnight and into Thursday morning.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory warning for several Stateline counties through 9 a.m. Thursday.

The government agency says freezing rain could last most of the day before changing over to freezing drizzle in the evening.

Rain showers will taper off by 9 or 10 p.m. and the dense fog will disperse as the cold front passes through metro Detroit.

It warns freezing rain Thursday and high winds early Friday could cause more problems, like downed wires or other safety hazards. The warmest point on Thursday will likely occur during the evening, for a short while we could see some rain for a few hours if temperatures manage to climb above the freezing mark, as now forecast. Temperatures are expected to fall back into the 20s on Saturday.

The Wednesday morning and evening commutes will likely be affected due to accumulating ice pellets and the potential for untreated surfaces to become icy.
